Cricket News sort by Sri Lanka vs India 1st Test at Galle, Aug 12-16, 2015

India would definitely be smarting from the defeat they tasted at Galle at the hands of Sri Lanka in spite of dominating a major portion of the match. Not a lot went wrong for India during the first three days

Rarely does it happen in Test cricket that a team loses after dominating for nearly three-and-a-half days

In spite of Dinesh Chandimal’s exploits on day three of the Galle Test, India would still have been relatively confident of victory on day four, as they needed a little over 150 runs with nine wickets in hand

The third day of the Galle Test began with India looking all set to wrap up the match on day three itself. However, a spectacular counter-attacking hundred by Dinesh Chandimal, scored in adverse circumstances

Overnight not out batsmen Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli hit centuries as India continued their domination on day two

The much-hyped decision by Virat Kohli, to promote Rohit Sharma up to number three, did not prove fruitful.
