India have won just two of their last 25 Tests away from home and have to answer a lot of questions so they can improve on that miserable record in Galle. And things have become even more difficult for them with the news that Murali Vijay, who has scored over 1,000 runs in his last 19 Test innings, was ruled out with a hamstring injury.
The absence of the 31-year-old, which means it looks like a difficult choice between Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul for another starting position is now redundant, and both will face new ball Bleacherreport. Another interesting aspect for selecting the Indian team is the stated intention of Virat Kohli to play five players, suggesting inexperienced wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha will bat at number six. It is still a strange sight to see a team of India in the field without the reassuring presence of MS Dhoni behind the stumps and Saha, averaging only 17 more than five tests and scored 3 and 1 in the match against XI President, has big shoes to fill.
Sri Lanka vs India 1st Test Prediction 12th August
This reduced batting lineup accumulated enormous pressure on a talented but perhaps not the most stubborn (especially outside India) to mid Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane Kohli, who need to record some great contributions. The snowball effect means that besides playing a crucial role with the ball when twist comes into play, the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin and Harbhajan Singh will have to jump with lower order runs too. And while it might be slow bowling players that end up dictating the game, the sultry suspicious circumstances must give voice Bhuvneshwar Kumar also important, especially when the ball is new and its members are fresh.
Shaminda Eranga injuries, Suranga Lakmal and rhythm feeling Chameera Dushmantha have left them with an inexperienced bowling attack-like, led by Dhammika Prasad, averaging 43.25 over the counter. And you could say the batting side of things also like a certain know-how, despite the presence of Sangakkara for the second to last time in history in international cricket, is an important lift.
Classy southpaw made his Test debut in 2000 in this area, and it would bet against the 38-year-old, adding to its 38 centuries of plunder race to sign with a bang? More positively, openers Dimuth Karunaratne Kaushal Silva and look strong and will have to play a key role if the people of Sri Lanka are going to get into winning positions. In addition, a resurgence of the form of Rangana Herath, who has not taken multiple windows in a full game since February, also would be useful.
