India and Sri Lanka try to battle out their first test match in the series at Galle on August 12. The teams seem to be a naive one as the players need to cling to their forms for a good win here in the first test match.
With a buzz within the cricket fraternity about the forms of both the teams, it is likely to see a great stint from both the sides tomorrow. The batting order of the Indians seems a bit rusty with Rohit Sharma proving to be a desperate one.
KL Rahul appears to be the inexperienced player of the squad but have clinched a ton with Australia. The middle order seems a bit strong with the likes of Kohli, Dhawan, Rahane and Pujara.
But still it completely depends upon the strokes they play to defeat their opposition. On the other side, Sri Lanka seems to boast of Dimuth Karunaratne with his edgy shots but it would also need a proper form from Kaushal Silva to punish the Indian bowlers this time.
Sony Six, Sony Six HD and Sony Kix TV channels will telecast the Test live in India.
The batting side remains a little high with Mubarak, Tharanga, Matthews and Kumar Sangakkara to help in a score boost. Apparently, Sri Lanka’s bowling side seems to be in turmoil with the best bowlers been cut off for injuries.
At lunch the Sri Lanka score was 65/5 in 27 overs. Follow Cricket live score of Ind vs SL here.
Prasad, Pradeep, Herath and Kaushal are the only bowlers to be glanced upon, and a different bowling spell can only make themselves prove worthy.
India on the other side seems to be boasting of their five power bowlers with a possibility of taking the wickets early in the match.
The weather conditions also seem inconsistent with the rains to be hampering the play for a bit. But being a Galle pitch, it sure to dry out soon and turn out for a bowling stint.
