Chandimal's overnight partner Mendis attempted to force Yadav over the infield only to be caught by Indian skipper Virat Kohli.
It is obvious that Jadeja will be a miss - by becoming the fastest left-arm bowler to 150 wickets in Test cricket, Jadeja showed just how underrated a cricketer he is - but with the series already sealed thanks to the innings victory in Colombo, India can look at experimenting a little bit.
Ravindra Jadeja claimed five wickets as India crushed Sri Lanka by an innings and 53 runs in the second Test to clinch the series here on Sunday.
The left-hander was adjudged Man of the Match for his match figures of 7-236 in 61 overs apart from unbeaten 70 with the bat in the first innings.
"Guys who have both abilities are very rare to find. That's where we think they're very precious, specially in the longer format because they provide you with great balance", Kohli said referring to Jadeja. "I am pleased with the way we batted", the host skipper said and added that using the sweep was a strategic plan. As an opener, we expect that kind of innings from him, so we're very happy he played that innings on a very tough deck like this one. Jadeja threw the ball at Dimuth Karunaratne off his own bowling when the batsman was inside the crease and the umpire ruled it "dangerous".
Ravindra Jadeja will miss India's third and final Test against Sri Lanka after being slapped Sunday with a one-match ban by ICC for risky play. This is the second time in the last two years that India have won a Test series in Sri Lanka.
"Success will come your way but you need patience".
The hosts resumed the third day on 50 for two in their first innings but lost their remaining eight wickets for 133 runs as off spinner Ravichandran Ashwin bagged his 26th five-wicket haul in test cricket. He's bowled so much that the other discipline was left behind, but now he's catching up in that as well.
"Jadeja is a very special bowler". One more would help India equal the world record held by Australia.
Going into the lunch break, Dimuth Karunaratne and Angelo Mathews had shown good heads on their shoulders as they kept mixing caution and aggression.
Post India's win, on "Friendship Day", the Indian captain caught up with the WWE wrestler who can be described as the first Indian to have made it big in one of the biggest sports entertainment events. The core of KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane have taken the responsibility and that is the primary reason why India has consistently scored in excess of 500 more often than not.
