  Commentary

  • That's all ladies and gentlemen from us. The second Test will start at the Sinhalese Sports Club Ground in Colombo on August 3. Till then, have a good time!

  • Virat Kohli: We should have won last time here but this time around a very clinical performance. We are more experienced side now and playing good cricket. All bases were covered this time. The surface didn't offer much. That's why the win is more important as bowlers had to work hard. Last time there was much more for the bowlers but this time it helped batsmen. (On openers scoring well): It's a massive headache and a nice one, but guys understand that only two can take the field at one time. (On his hundred): It was a situation where had to capitalise and not to waste deliveries. Abhinav batted very well and deserved the hundred as well. I guess getting a Test hundred is always special.

  • Rangana Herath: It is getting well. I had previously a fracture on the same finger. It was a pretty good wicket to bat, so full credit to the Indian team. Losing Asela was a huge loss as he really is a good batsman. We need to improve in batting, bowling and fielding.

  • Player of the match - Shikhar Dhawan

  • Shikhar Dhawan (MoM): Really enjoyed batting over there. I was positive and was looking to score runs. There is a very healthy competition and a very good sign for Indian cricket. It always keeps me on my toes to improve further.

  • India wrap up the game with more than a day to spare. A big victory by 304 runs for Kohli and co. as the spinners, Ashwin and Jadeja, picked three wickets each after openers provided early breakthroughs. Sri Lanka would require some introspection though who are further crippled by a couple of injuries to their key players.

  • Hello and welcome to the Day 2 of the first Test between India v Sri Lanka Test at Galle. India dominated the first day, courtesy brilliant hundreds from Shikhar Dhawan and Cheteshwar Pujara. Nuwan Pradeep was the only bowler for Sri Lanka who made some impact. India would like to build on the platform, while Sri Lanka would be hoping for some quick wickets early on.

  • India lost Kohli's wicket shortly after tea but Pujara (144*) and Ajinkya Rahane (39*) batted calmly to deny Sri Lanka any further wicket. The duo put an unbeaten partnership of 113 runs off 200 balls as India ended the day with 399 for 3, but the star of the day was Shikhar Dhawan, who scored a swashbuckling 190 of just 168 balls. For Sri Lanka, Pradeep picked up all the three wickets that fell. See you tomorrow. Till then, good bye.

  • Another session goes in India's favour as they continued in the same manner after lunch, with Dhawan scoring even more freely. Pujara remained solid on the other end, as runs kept flowing, mainly from Dhawan's bat. The latter reached his hundred off just 110 balls and took only 37 deliveries more to get to his 150. Meanwhile, Pujara too brought his 50 up as the duo added 253 in just 280 balls. Dhawan got past his previous best of 187 and was looking good for a double hundred. He got out to Pradeep in the last over before tea, while looking to clear mid off, for a 168-ball 190. Pujara, on the other end, was batting on 75 at the stroke of tea as Sri Lankan bowlers looked helpless on this batting track.

  • Shikhar Dhawan and Abhinav Mukund come to the middle, Nuwan Pradeep to bowl the first over.

  • And we are ready for the first ball.

  • And national anthems for both the teams...

  • Another player making his Test debut today is Danushka Gunathilaka of Sri Lanka.

  • Meanwhile, the rain has stopped - was a passing shower really, and he covers are coming off.

  • And meanwhile, we can see that a strong wind is blowing with some rain drops and the groundsmen are ready with covers already. Murali Kartik wraps up the toss quickly to let groundsmen do their bit.

  • Rangana Herath: I would have batted first too. It looks like a good wicket. We want to restrict them to a low score.

  • Virat Kohli: We gotta bat first. Looks like a pretty hard surface with a good grass covering. Putting runs on the board is always a nice thing. KL Rahul is down with the flu and Shikhar Dhawan comes in. Last time also, as I mentioned, we felt we were a batsman short, so we have got an allrounder. Last time also, we were in control for 80% of the match. We will try to do the basics right and get into the same position once again.

  • India Won the Toss & Elected to Bat

  • Russell Arnold, during pitch report, says that the pitch can be a bit two-paced. With sun belting down, it's likely to be drier. Winning the toss and batting first will be a preferable option.

  • So, it means R Ashwin will have most wickets for any bowler after 50 Tests, irrespective of his performance in this Test.

  • Earlier, a viral fever ruled KL Rahul out of this Test, it needs to be seen who will open along with Shikhar Dhawan. Virat Kohli hinted that they might go with Abhinav Mukund, the other specialist opener in the squad. But does that mean Rohit Sharma sits out as Pandya will be making his debut?

  • Viral fever rules Rahul out of Galle Test

    No cause for concern opening batsman left out of first five day fixture purely as a precautionary measure

  • Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya is set to make his Test debut, having just received his cap.

  • This will be the 50th Test for R Ashwin who will be having fond memories of Galle from the last time.

  • Here's R Kaushik's preview from the venue:

  • Confident India hope to crack Sri Lankas Galle code

    The home side in the throes of a generational shift will have to play their A game to get the better of the No 1 ranked Test team

  • Hello and welcome to the first Test of Sri Lanka v India series at Galle. Sri Lanka will be looking to revive their fortunes, but it won't be an easy task against the No. 1-ranked side in the world.

  • Hardik Pandya will start after the break.

  • Sri Lanka still however trail by 311 runs, and with Gunaratne out with injury, have basically only one wicket to play with this innings. So the follow on is still pretty much a possibility. Will be interesting to see if India enforce it.

  • that's the end of a gripping first session. Sri Lanka did well to add 135 runs in that session for the loss of just three wickets. Angelo Mathews and Dilruwan Perera ensured that India would be made to work for their wickets. Mathews fell for 83 to an unrelenting Jadeja even as Perera battles on at an unbeaten 90.

  • Umesh Yadav will start the day for India.

  • Hello and welcome to our coverage of third day's play from Galle where the visiting Indian brigade sit comfortably atop the proceedings. Having amassed 600 runs, the bowlers came to the party as Sri Lanka slid to 154 for 5 at close on Day 2. The game seems well out of Sri Lanka's reach as it stands now. India will be smacking their lips at the thought of a massive innings victory. Against all odds, Sri Lanka will look to offer their steely best and at least delay India's charge if not fully abate it.

  • India end the Day 2 in the commanding position, just like the Day 1. Sri Lanka, who are one batsman short, are struggling at 154 for five. The fast bowlers provided India early breakthroughs but then Tharanga (64) and Mathews tried to steady the ship for a while. India came back strongly courtesy some excellent fielding, especially from Mukund and would like to further strengthen their hold on Day 3. That's all from us for today. See you tomorrow.

  • Hello and welcome to the fourth day of the first Test between Sri Lanka and India. Virat Kohli is 24 short of another hundred but will he go for it or would he like to have some cushion of extra overs in case it rains and declare sooner? Don't worry, we'll get to know that shortly.

  • We'll see you again tomorrow. India will like to think that by tomorrow they will seal the deal to go up 1-0

  • And that's stumps. Barring the knocks of Angelo Mathews and Dilruwan Perera which only lent Sri Lanka some bit of respectability. But they're staring down the barrel with India leading by a mammoth 498 runs. Only rain might be able to save the match for the hosts.

  Full commentary

  • That's all ladies and gentlemen from us. The second Test will start at the Sinhalese Sports Club Ground in Colombo on August 3. Till then, have a good time!

  • Virat Kohli: We should have won last time here but this time around a very clinical performance. We are more experienced side now and playing good cricket. All bases were covered this time. The surface didn't offer much. That's why the win is more important as bowlers had to work hard. Last time there was much more for the bowlers but this time it helped batsmen. (On openers scoring well): It's a massive headache and a nice one, but guys understand that only two can take the field at one time. (On his hundred): It was a situation where had to capitalise and not to waste deliveries. Abhinav batted very well and deserved the hundred as well. I guess getting a Test hundred is always special.

  • Rangana Herath: It is getting well. I had previously a fracture on the same finger. It was a pretty good wicket to bat, so full credit to the Indian team. Losing Asela was a huge loss as he really is a good batsman. We need to improve in batting, bowling and fielding.

  • Player of the match - Shikhar Dhawan

  • Shikhar Dhawan (MoM): Really enjoyed batting over there. I was positive and was looking to score runs. There is a very healthy competition and a very good sign for Indian cricket. It always keeps me on my toes to improve further.

  • India wrap up the game with more than a day to spare. A big victory by 304 runs for Kohli and co. as the spinners, Ashwin and Jadeja, picked three wickets each after openers provided early breakthroughs. Sri Lanka would require some introspection though who are further crippled by a couple of injuries to their key players.
