Kuldeep Yadav roped in as India opt to bat : Pallekele Test

13 August 2017, 02:45 | Randolph Howard

Some thought this was to suggest his second ton in the series but he later hinted at some team secret.

In the light of Jadeja's suspension, left-arm spinner Axar Patel was added to the Indian squad.

"But you don't know what's going to cause you one or two or three points".

Lahiru Gamage, who has previously featured in five ODIs for Sri Lanka, and Dushmantha Chameera have been included with Rangana Herath and Nuwan Pradeep missing out due to injuries. India's only concern coming into the Test was Kohli's atrocious form in Test cricket, something that seems to have been exacerbated by his captaincy. The bowlers need more rest in places like Sri Lanka where it gets hot and humid.

Shikhar Dhawan scored a brisk 119, his second century this series. He was turning the ball and one odd ball was turning a lot.

Pandya had just reached his half-century when India lost their ninth wicket, some ten minutes before the scheduled lunch break. "They came back well". An over later, Shami bowled it full outside off and Karunaratne prodded and the outside edge went to Saha.

Boston Red Sox bullpen squanders Eduardo Rodriguez shutout performance
The Yankees (60-53) enters Friday's series opener against the American League East-leading Red Sox trailing Boston by 4 1/2 games. Since then, both teams have had only intermittent success and they haven't finished first and second in either configuration.

Rahul had reached his fifty off 67 deliveries to join an elite list of cricketers who jointly hold the world record for most consecutive half-centuries or more. Rahul departed for 85.

The aggressive Dhawan latched on to short stuff from the recalled Lahiru Kumara with some exquisite cuts, while Rahul pulled expertly and drove with elegance as India got off to an ominous start.

Both Dhawan, who made his sixth Test century and his second of the series, and KL Rahul, who was his partner in that opening salvo, were dismissed my Malinda Pushpakumara, the left-arm spinner, playing their strokes. At lunch on day two, Pandya was unbeaten on 108 off 93 balls with seven fours and eight sixes against his name.

The ever dependable Pujara's discomfort at the crease came to an end as he was caught at first slip off Sandakan in the 51st over.

India will hope its lower-order clicks once again in this series as they look to complete a record 3-0 whitewash. The live cricket streaming of the match will be available on Sony LIV, while the live telecast of the match will be available on Sony SIX and Sony Six HD, along with the Hindi commentary on Ten 3 and Ten 3 HD. Even so, the skipper wasn't too bothered about the playing combination or even how the pitch conditions might have changed in the build-up to the game. Kohli, on the other end, looked solid in defense as he looked to play out the overs.

"The wicket is a bit on the slower side and doesn't have much of bounce on it. Rahul and I, we played very nicely".
