India vs Sri Lanka 1st test Preview


India moves their attention towards their neighbours Sri-Lanka as an intriguing series closes in. After defeating a dangerous looking New Zealand side in all formats, India has set their sights to replicate their performance against a young Sri Lankan side.

The first test is set to take place in at the Eden Gardens stadium in Kolkata in the 16th of November 09:30 am IST.

Sri-Lanka in excellent form

India has been in excellent form in the last 2 years. However, they can’t afford to be complacent as this can potentially lead to their downfall. Therefore, India would be very wary about Lion’s recent annihilation against their bitter rivals Pakistan. Surprisingly, not only did Sri-Lanka become the first team to defeat Pakistan in Dubai. They also achieved this feat in an emphatic manner by producing a white-wash to leave the Pakistani team in tatters.

Spinning contest to savour

Unlike most of India’s opponents, they have played in their backyard. Sri-Lanka is arguably got the best spinning lineup to match them for each stride. Having the likes of Rangena Herath certainly boosts their chances. He is in the form of his life, after impressively surpassing the 400 wickets mark. Even at the age of 39 years, he seems to be getting better by age, just like a fine wine. Moreover, they also have Dilruwan Perera. He too has had a promising start to his career. It wouldn’t be absurd to think Sri Lanka will win this series. However, if they are to give India their run for the money. They must produce something magisterial in each discipline of the game because keeping the likes of Virat Kohli and Ashwin quiet in their own backyard appears to be an insurmountable task
