Sri Lanka vs India 2nd Test Match-Preview

Sri Lanka Squad for second Test: Dinesh Chandimal (Captain), Upul Tharanga, Dimuth Karunaratne, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Niroshan Dickwella, Dilruwan Perera, Rangana Herath, Lahiru Kumara, Vishwa Fernando, Malinda Pushpakumara, Nuwan Pradeep, Danushka Gunathilaka, Lahiru Thirimanne and Lakshan Sandakan.

Pitch and conditions

There is dead grass holding the surface together, but the SSC track looks decidedly drier than the pitch at Galle. Generally though, it takes at least on Day 2 for the ball to begin taking sharp turn at this venue. There were five centuries in the most-recent SSC Test. Isolated showers are forecast throughout the Test.

Most Likely XI Sri Lanka Selectors will choose-
1.  Upul Tharanga (Left-hand Batsman)
2.  Dimuth Karunaratne (Left-hand Batsman)
3.  Kusal Mendis (Right-hand Batsman)
4.  Dinesh Chandimal (Right-hand Batsman)(Captain)
5.  Angelo Mathews (Right-hand Batsman)
6.  Dhananjaya de Silva (Right-hand Batsman)
7.  Niroshan Dickwella(Left-hand Batsman)(Wicket-keeper)
8.  Dilruwan Perera (Right-Arm Off-Spin)
9.   Rangana Herath (Slow left-arm orthodox)
10. Malinda Pushpakumara (Slow left-arm orthodox)
11. Nuwan Pradeep(Right-Arm Fast-Medium)

My XI-
1.  Upul Tharanga (Left-hand Batsman)
