Sri Lanka's bowlers strike back after Dhawan's hundred in third Test
Sri Lanka's bowlers strike back after Dhawan's hundred in third Test
13 Agosto, 2017, 14:45
Having started the day's play 329 for 6, India went to lunch having added a further 158 runs for the loss of three wickets.
The National Cricket Selectors yesterday included two fast-bowlers to their 15-member squad for the Third and Final Test match against India which will commence at the Pallekele Stadium in Kandy on Saturday (12).
For Sri Lanka, Lakshan Sandakan, Lahiru Kumara and Vishwa Fernando have all been roped in place of injured Rangana Herath, Nuwan Pradeep and Dhananjaya de Silva.
Rahul missed out on another Test hundred, miscuing one straight to Dimuth Karunaratne at mid-on off left-arm spinner Pushpakumara in the 40th over.
Because MS Dhoni doesn't play Test cricket, he was called to prove his fitness at National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru along with teammate Kedar Jadhav, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Jasprit Bumrah and other probable candidates for the limited-overs series.
India won the toss for the third time in a row and chose to bat first. But it is Cheteshwar Pujara, India's "best Test batsman", who has been a thorn in Sri Lanka's flesh with two hundreds in two Tests.
Kohli and Rahane ensured that the visitors did not suffer any more setbacks before tea as the Lankans went into the break well satisfied with the outcome of the post lunch session.
That brought Pandya, unbeaten on one overnight, and Umesh together for the last wicket, allowing the former a license to free his bat in search of quick runs.
India continued to go from strength to strength in the second session, continuing to dominate the bowlers. Rahul's record half-century and Dhawan's sixth Test ton ensured India hold the advantage after Sri Lanka staged a brilliant fight back.
Seven dead, over 20 missing in Himachal landslide
Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh left from Shimla by road as bad weather did not permit him to take the aerial route to Mandi. One of the state roadways bus was hit by the landslide debris and skidded off the road, falling down by nearly a kilometre.
Both of them had half-lives given to them by Sri Lanka, but apart from that odd chance, they were thoroughly in control, with the home team's bowling attack struggling to cope with the onslaught, particularly from the blade of Dhawan.
"So if it is consistent then I think it is going to be a good going ahead because players will obviously be more aware of how they need to conduct themselves on the field".
Lakshan Sandakan bagged two wickets while Vishwa Fernando also chipped in with a wicket.
The former then fell immediately afterwards caught behind off Sandakan. Sandakan dismissed Pujara for a paltry 8 as he nicked one to Mathews at slip to get Sandakan his first wicket. Besides that, today the area of interest will be how India's own chinaman Kuldeep Yadav bowls on a pitch offering slow turn.
