Sri Lanka bowled out for 205 v India's 11/1 in Nagpur Test

Sri Lanka bowled out for 205 v India's 11/1 in Nagpur Test

Karunaratne and Chandimal, however, allayed fears of a collapse with plenty of grit and some luck. After being dropped on 15, Karunaratne was stumped on 21 by Wriddhiman Saha off Jadeja, but it was off a no-ball. In the second session, the ball beat the outside edge on many occasions, but Karunaratne kept his wits about him and brought up a half-century. In the process, he also became only the second batsman to make at least 1000 runs in 2017 after Dean Elgar.

Umesh, Bhuvneshwar strike, but Sri Lanka has the advantage

“A Test has to be won over five days, but it can be lost in a session.” India faced the truism of this saying on a fluctuating third day’s play in the opening match against Sri Lanka, with the visiting side finishing on 165 for 4 after 45.4 overs, behind by only seven runs, when play was called off for bad light.

Sri Lanka batsmen start off well on tour match in India

Dinesh Chandimal, the Sri Lanka captain, retired after a patient 29. Mathews, who missed the entire series against Pakistan due to a calf strain, got some much-needed time out in the middle as he scored 54 off 93, with six fours, before retiring at tea with Sri Lankans on 254 for 2.

Yes No
THE DAY'S QUOTE

“That was pathetic. No excuse at all. The whole team is responsible. Whoever the captain is, we have to back him and try and support him. The captain has to do so many other stuff. All the 11 guys must back him and support him.” “We have addressed the issue of finishing off the overs on time in the past as well, but it cropped up again. It’s so unfortunate to see Upul going out as he is a crucial player in our set up. He batted well against South Africa and it’s so unfortunate. This can’t happen again,” - Angelo Mathews

FEEDBACK/COMMENTS

Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
