India thumped Sri Lanka by an innings and 53 runs to clinch the second Test in Colombo to bag the three-match Test series 2-0 in advance. Though Sri Lanka showed some signs of promise in their second innings, they suffered another batting collapse on day four which handed India a comprehensive win.
Here are some of the best Tweets of the day:
