COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) — Ravindra Jadeja bagged his ninth five-wicket haul in test cricket Sunday to help India crush Sri Lanka by an innings and 53 runs in the second test and secure the three-match series 2-0 with still a match to be played.

Batting first India declared its first innings on 622 for nine and dismissed Sri Lanka for 183 and enforced the follow-on, commanding a 439-run lead. Sri Lanka performed better in the second innings but couldn't prevent an innings defeat when they were bowled out for 386.

Jadeja finished with 5-152 and collected seven wickets in the match.

Dimuth Karunaratne (141) and Kusal Mendis (110) scored centuries for Sri Lanka in its second innings.
