Bengaluru: Rohit Sharma and Co. take on the Lankan Lions of Sri Lanka in the final Test in Bengaluru on Saturday as India look to inflict yet another whitewash claim on home turf. The Man of the Match from previous match was Ravindra Jadeja as his heroics both with the bat and the ball helped the Men in Blue achieve a victory by an innings and 222 runs in Mohali. He scored an unbeaten 175 and scalped 9 wickets as he scripted a one-man show. Ahead of the Day-Night Pink Ball Test, Sir Jadeja has a chance to etch his name in the history books and join the elite list beside the names of Ravichandran Ashwin and World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev.
