Ashwin spins India to win after another SL collapse : 2nd Test, Day 5 (PSS)

Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (5-42) took his 12th five-wicket-haul to deliver a big 278-run win to level the three-match series 1-1.

Set a daunting target of 413, the home team caved in rather tamely to bundled out for a meagre 134 in 43.4 overs shortly after lunch.

India 393 (Rahul 108, Rohit 79, Kohli 78, Herath 4-81) and 325 for 8 dec. (Rahane 126, Vijay 82, Prasad 4-43, Kaushal 4-118) beat Sri Lanka 306 (Mathews 102, Thirimanne 62, Mishra 4-43) and 134 (Karunaratne 46, Ashwin 5-42, Mishra 3-29) by 278 runs.
