Different teams, different strategies
Interesting to see how little India’s batsmen use the sweep shot. Sri Lanka would have played 30 by now, I reckon.
Good fightback from Sri Lanka
15 sessions in a test match means you can turn around a couple of bad ones. Essence of test cricket. Sri Lanka have shown that.
Sri Lanka clawing their way back in this session. Interesting to see if they can keep this spirit going
Another sublime hundred from Dhawan
When he gets centuries, Shikhar Dhawan also gets them quickly and makes it easier for everyone else. Has made batting look easy again.
Missed chances…not helping SL cause
Two chances down in the first hour of a Test match. Not surprising India have strolled to a good start.
Good toss to win for India
Another very good toss to win for Kohli. Seems all or nothing on that front for him. And the mandatory change too, though forced this time.
Picturesque venue in Pallekele
Outfield pretty damp with all the rain around but pitch quite dry. Beautiful ground, the cameramen will love it
