India are just seven wickets away to complete a 2-0 sweep in the Test series against Sri Lanka at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Ravindra Jadeja, On Day 3 in the 21st over, bowled Angelo Mathews moments after Virat Kohli, who was fielding at first slip, said a wicket would come.
India need seven more wickets to complete the sweep against Sri Lanka in both T20I and Test series. Sri Lanka, after being set an improbable target of 447, were reduced to 102/3 at the drinks break of the morning session on Day 3.
Soon after, Virat Kohli, in the next over was seen chanting ayega ayega (wickets will come again) while positioning at first slip. Ravindra Jadeja came to bowl the next over, the 21st, and then cleaned up Angelo Mathews with a straight ball. Mathews left a big gap between bat and pad, and the ball sneaked through, and hit the top of the leg stump.
Following the dismissal, Sri Lanka, who looked well in the morning session, and scored runs quickly went on to the backfoot again.
Here's how Twitterati reacted after the wicket:
