Colombo: Sri Lanka completed an innings and 77 runs victory over India to clinche the third Test and series at the Sinhalese Sports Club ground on Sunday.The merrily-wagging Indian team delayed the formalities for Sri Lanka as the writing was very clear on the wall for India at the draw of the stumps on Saturday. Zaheer Khan (45) and Harbhajan Singh threw their bats at everything to reduce the margin of ignominy.The innings of Zaheer and Harbhajan only proved that the pitch held no devil and the top order batsmen could have achieved better results with application and dedication.
