Colombo: The live streaming of the first Test between Sri Lanka vs India being played in Colombo from August 12, 2015, can be watched on Sony Six website.
Sri Lanka win the toss and they will bat first.
Sri Lanka XI: Karunaratne, JK Silva, KC Sangakkara, Thirimanne, AD Mathews, LD Chandimal, Mubarak, Herath, Prasad, N Pradeep and PHT Kaushal.
India XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Rahul, Rahul Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, WP Saha, Ravi Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, A Mishra, VR Aaron and I Sharma.
It is up to the teams to work around with their different strategies and logic to make an improvement in the coming game.
After MS Dhoni retired from Test cricket, Virat Kohli will lead the Indian side.
India seems to be crawling with their indecisive batting order now. Rohit Sharma had proven to be a disastrous one without having generated any bulk score for the team.
The only young player seems to be KL Rahul, but he has managed to get a century at Australia before. The middle order seems neat with Kohli, Pujara, Shikhar Dhawan and Rahane clinching on the scoreboard total.
Sri Lanka also seems tensed with their batting side with Karunaratne trying to get to a mark with his copybook shots.
They are also in need of Kaushal to display some powerful performance in treating the Indian bowlers this time.
Again the middle order seems sturdy with the likes of Kumar Sangakkara, Angelo Matthews, Tharanga and Mubarak.
Eventually, Sri Lanka would need to test their bowlers with different forms to stop India from getting a big total.
Since the major bowlers are out with an injury it is over Kaushal, Prasad and Pradeep to experiment with their bowling strategies in the meanwhile.
The Indian team here are backed up with five strong bowlers and are looking forward to bowling their best in this dry Galle pitch.
The weather would display a bit of rain on the field, but the pitch would surely tend to be a bowling one as it would quickly dry up and prove difficult for the batsmen.
