In the pics, they were seen chilling in the resort alongside KL Rahul, who missed the opening Test due to viral flu. So, it was considered as all out for the Lankan Team.

"We had an x-ray yesterday", he said.

Dilruwan Perera's arrival as the last recognized batsman left the game on the brink of an India win. "The plain truth is that we didn't play well and we are to be blamed". "The finger is not swollen but it's sore and painful". Kohli's return to Galle, after a shock loss in 2015, was triumphant. We've just done what we've done in the past two years on a consistent basis. "If you look at the Champions Trophy and the one-day series in West Indies, he has been in good touch", Ganguly said. "There is a very healthy competition from the opening spot in the side, and it keeps me on my toes", Dhawan who was adjudged the man-of-the-match said. When Chandimal comes back, he will go back to No. 3 straight away. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, have a lot to worry about. He wasn't available to bat or bowl and that was a huge blow for us. We need to find out how we can do better than this moving forward. "It comes down to whether we are going to play six or seven batsmen, we will have to decide on that after looking at the wicket".

Ashwin will look to continue his fine run of form against Sri Lanka in the 2nd Test which begins on August 3 at Colombo. They stitched a 51-run stand after which Virat Kohli declared, setting Sri Lanka's target to 550.

Priebus gone, can Kelly bring discipline to the White House?
House Speaker Paul Ryan, a longtime friend of Priebus', said he "left it all out on the field, for our party and our country". When pressed by Blitzer on why he resigned from the role, Priebus responded, "I'm not going to get into that personal stuff".

Earlier in the first innings, Sri Lanka were bowled out at 291 in reply to a mammoth total of 600 by India. "That was a 400-run track", Gurusinha said. Having said that, I expected the spinners to come into the equation on the fourth or fifth day.

"The last time when we played here on this surface, it offered much more to the bowlers". This gives them a licence to inflict more agony on the opposition and literally bat them out of the Test match.

"We have certain plans, where we try to hold our partnership together at the start and end of each session because when you start and end the session well, it is a big plus for the team". We've got all four openers firing now.

While he is still a long way behind Dhoni's record of 27, Ganguly, who is credited with India's turnaround in performances in overseas conditions, believes that it will be India's performances in countries like Australia, England, and South Africa that define Kohli's calibre as a skipper. "These days in Test cricket, the game has changed a lot because of T20".
