Virat Kohli’s India thrashed Sri Lanka by 304 runs in Galle Test to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. It was India’s biggest winning margin in Sri Lanka and showed just why they are the top-ranked side in the world. Set a daunting 550 to win, Dimuth Karunaratne made 97 for the hosts, but after his departure in the final session their hopes sank in Galle. With all-rounder Asela Gunaratne and stand-in captain Rangana Herath unable to bat through injury, Sri Lanka called it a day with eight wickets down and the total on 245. Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin each took three wickets for the dominant tourists.
