India defeated Sri Lanka in the first Test match which took place in Mohali at the PCA stadium. Ravindra Jadeja was the star with both bat and ball for India as he scored 175 in the first innings and also scalped 5 wickets when he came to bowl in Sri Lanka's first innings helping India dominate.

India beat Sri Lanka in the first Test match comprehensively by an innings and 222 runs to go one up in the two-match series. This was Rohit Sharma's first match as captain of the Test team and he was spot on throughout the game with his decisions on the field. After having won the toss, Rohit Sharma decided to bat first. India got a good start but kept losing wickets regularly.

However, the partnership between Ravindra Jadeja and Rishabh Pant changed the course of the game. Rishabh Pant played brilliant attacking innings as he smashed the Sri Lanka bowlers all around the park but got out for 96 in 97 balls. From thereon, Ravindra Jadeja took charge of the innings as he scored a fluent century and which helped India post 575/8 in the first innings.

In the second innings, he dismissed 4 batters again.
