Last Cricket Test between India, Sri Lanka to begin tomorrow

Last Cricket Test between India, Sri Lanka to begin tomorrow

Yadav had made a strong debut in Dharamsala in the fourth Test in March, where he claimed four for 68 to set up India's eight-wicket win and clinch the series. Jadeja played an instrumental role in setting up India's victory in the Colombo Test. Dushmantha Chameera has played six Tests, Vishwa Fernando has played one, and Lahiru Gamage is uncapped in this format. If the low crowds at the first two Test matches are any indication, supporters don't expect too much from this bunch. Can they even survive five days?

"I have been working with Bharat Arun for the past 10 years", he said, "ever since I was playing in Under-16, in Under-19 also". Chameera was only added to the squad on Thursday.

The subcontinent team has never won a Test series in South Africa in their entire history with a 1-1 drawn series in 2010 being the best result they have achieved against the Proteas. Gunaratne in the first game and Nuwan and Herath in the second It becomes tough for the captain, manager and selectors to get the right combination.

All in all, India should take this as an opportunity to experiment and try out the bench before they tour other nations. Sri Lanka, thus, could provide Iyer with an global cap that has been eluding the 22-year-old Mumbai batsman for quite some time. As a team we're hoping to win this game. The Colombo Test was won by an even more comfortable margin of an innings and 53 runs.

In fact, at no point during the course of his two-year reign as India Test captain, would the 28-year-old have faced such a unique challenge. There was no training at all on the eve of the game. "Not really", Kohli said when asked if he remembered the last time he went into a Test without having had a look at the pitch a day before the toss. "Yesterday, we took an off voluntarily, and today, it just happened to rain". The trainers gave us some exercises and we did them.

"We haven't thought about 3-0".

India opener Lokesh Rahul stamped his class in Test cricket with yet another half-century and joined an elite list of cricketers to hit most consecutive half-centuries or more. That attitude helps them stay interested in working hard.

"That was a very important meeting".

"As a young unit, we want to win a game and keep the spirit going". It's a good thing and all the players also contributed to that. A lot of positives came out. "They understand the dynamics of the team and they make our job easier because their attitude is so good". We don't have players who are happy to sit out.
