After two contrasting matches in Hambantota, the teams gear up for another double-header at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, with the series neatly tied up at 1-1. Sri Lanka will be the more confident of the two sides after the nine-wicket hiding they dished out to India in the previous outing, but India have a superior record at the Premadasa, where the heat and humidity and shorter boundaries will feel more comfortable after blustery Hambantota.

Upul Tharanga endured a tough series against Pakistan recently and was under pressure to hold his spot in the team. But an unbeaten half-century chasing India’s modest total may have just boosted not only his confidence, but also Mahela Jayawardene’s faith on the batting order.

While Virat Kohli has been hogging the limelight recently, Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni’s partnership down the order has gone unnoticed. The two have helped India convert good starts to tall totals and since CB series in Australia, they have scored 169 runs together from 17 overs. With Sri Lanka lacking express pace to bounce either of the two, the partnership will continue to a pose serious threat.

India have won the last five matches at the Premadasa where they have used their preferred method – bat first, score big and let the pressure of the chase stifle the opposition. However, the pitch was relaid before the World Cup and run scoring at the Premadasa since then has not been easy; both seamers and slow bowlers were among wickets during the recent ODIs against Pakistan. After their struggle in the last ODI in Hambantota on a pitch that offered some help, the Premadasa pitch could offer another stiff challenge to India’s batsmen.

    SL will bounce back, Jeevan Mendis will spin a web around the indian batsmen, watch for nuwan pradeep fastest bowler in the subcontinent.
    Though kulasekara and sangha is out the other batters will be make good runs against india’s week bowling attack.

  5. Masud says:

    why Rohit sharma? No Manoj tiwary !!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. asif says:

    Yadav and Ishant sharma is much better den Dinda. i dnt knw y indian team not picking Ishant sharma regularly to play in Indian side, NO DOUBT Irfan pathan is a good All Rounder fot indian team. Indian team should pick the right choice for the fast bowlers and by the way jadeja is good all rounder, y Indian selectors not giving him chance he is better den ohuja

  7. sri lankan says:

    what the hell mahela jayawardana doing? this is a easy winning for sri lanka for that kind of big score. but, mahela didn’t give a good feilding setting. bullshit. he should have given more pressure to the indian batsmans especially, when india had lost five wickets. it’s captain mahela’s fault. but, this series, india going to win, because, sangakkara is injured and he won’t play for the next two matches. india is so lucky. that’s all i can say.

  8. hawk says:

    pathan is from my city, Baroda. he is a good all rounder for the indian team i think he should get more chances to play for his country. pathan brothers should play the next game if yusuf is in the squad and rohit sharma should chill on the bench

  9. mowla says:
