Is this the greatest test series upset in history?? For me it is in all my years of watching cricket (30 years +).

Last week the match required a brilliant innings and last wicket standard to get them home. This was match was just SL dominating. Well done to them, much deserved victory.
But not until the second innings. Even this chase should have been tough considering how the teams have batted through the match.

The ease with which they're winning this is mad.

Has to be. A strong side that's never lost at home to an Asian side


A weak as piss side with half the side having played under 10 tests coming off a drubbing and who never win away

Last week was played off as just Kusal being brilliant, which I can accept. But this is domination. Yeah they got bowled out for 150. But they fought back and have bossed the game since.

This is pretty good for India staying at the top of the rankings for a while.

This pitch had no demons.... I`m not surprised it gone this way. But SL have been fearless.

I know this is a little pathetic but the only thing I'm thinking about this entire innings is how India couldn't beat this team.

This record was always going to get broken. We've had just too many scares of it in the last ten or so years.

Glad it's finally over.
I am confused :confused1

That should be a positive if we came through the tough situations. No team wins every session for 10 years

India actually had plenty of chances but either choked or RSA just pulled the old get out of jail performance. Either way, this result just reinforces India's rightful claim to the top of test cricket.

Absolutely. The SA attack can fool people into thinking that this is a brilliant team. It isn't, we have brilliant fast bowlers and a very under used but still quality spinner. So yeah, they will bowl teams out for sub 200 often. But the batting can't even cross 300 these days.
