Bhuvi, Dhawan released from Indian team

India vs Sri Lanka Virat Kohli Left Fuming By Niroshan Dickwella's Antics

Mohammad Shami (2/34) and Umesh Yadav (1/25) breathed fire to reduce Lanka to 75 for seven in just 26.3 overs, while chasing a target of 231, before the match was called off due to bad light here on Monday.

Shankar, a middle-order batsman who also bowls medium-pace, has been a part of the India A side in 2015, and more recently on the tour of South Africa and the home series against New Zealand A. One of his more notable innings in his recent stint with the side was 86-ball 72 against South Africa A that helped India A clinch the title in a tri-series that also included Afghanistan A. India did not need all of them and, as KL Rahul later said, five-six more overs would have been sufficient for them. He is very good as a captain.

Chandimal also had high praise reserved for his Indian counterpart Virat Kohli, whose well-paced century set the game up for the hosts from a position where they appeared vulnerable after losing three quick wickets in the morning session. "This side will be a good one in future there is no doubt".


The Indian captain has now become the eighth batsman ever to score 50 or more worldwide centuries with Tendulkar leading the pack. We always try to get him early and we discuss a lot about him early. While they did have to struggle to save the match in the end, the visitors did make India uncomfortable by asking some tough questions on a hard pitch.

"Members of Team India won't be able to attend the wedding on 23rd but we have arranged a reception in Delhi (Hotel Taj) in the first week of December and both teams-India and Sri Lanka-are invited", Bhuvi's father, Kiran Pal Singh said. "It depends on how we play in the first session, especially the first hour tomorrow". The change was that we believed we could compete. "A lot of swings was on offer during first two days because of the dampness", Rahul reasoned for the first innings debacle where India were all out for 172.

"We played really well to come back from how we started. So we went in with that mindset", he recalled. We enjoyed playing on a wicket that was challenging and these are kinds of the matches you look forward to.
