  Commentary

  • So that's it from us for this first Test. The rains ruined the first two days but in the limited action possible the Sri Lankans bowled exceedingly well on a pitch that would respond. Their batsmen then earned them a sizeable lead, but India's openers then did a good job to wipe out the lead and then build a solid platform for a lead. The middle-order had bit of a failure, but Kohli stood tall with a magnificent hundred. Post declaration, no one expected India to come close to a win, but boy they did! Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were absolutely fantastic. Watch out for them come the second Test although one suspects that the spinners will have a bigger role to play at Nagpur. do join us then. Until then!

  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar (Man of the Match) (4/88 and 4/8): Frankly speaking it was difficult to bowl in the second innings because it was dry. But it was reverse swinging so we tried to use that to good effect. Yes we did believe we could win, we thought if we could get two-three quick wickets we could win this.

  • Player of the match - Bhuvneshwar Kumar

  • Virat Kohli: It was important to make something out of this game. As you mentioned the conditions changed drastically. We thought if we get stuck in with our bowling effort we wouldn't let them get too far ahead. We believed in our strengths, that was the key in the final stages of the game, we were just three short. All in all, we are very proud of our performance in this Test. He's bowling a heavier ball than earlier. He is a massive contender to start every Test for India. He's a massive part of our plans going forward, across formats. I think as soon as we lost Wriddhi, me and Bhuvi just thought of having some fun out there, the shots came off. I thought if I didn't play with intent there is nothing to gain from this Test. I hope to keep continuing this way, particularly when the team needs me.

  • Dinesh Chandimal: Yeah, it's good to win the toss in Test cricket. We fought well and competed well. It was a good Test match. We fought really well and played well as a team, but unfortunately in the last 10-15 overs we put a bit of pressure on ourselves. Lakmal is really good. He is the one you can trust as a captain. We're happy Rangana scored runs, he is a fighter. We have to learn how to bat well in the second innings. Even against Pakistan in UAE we didn't do well in second innings. Once we can do that we'll do a lot better in the future.

  • In addition there were a lot of other miscellenous attractions. First Dickwella got a mouthful from Ashwin for cashing in on India's error in placing three fielders behind square on the leg side and pointed it out to the umpires. The Shami was stopped in his run up a few times by Dickwella. A fired up Shami bowled an even better spell after that. SChandimal the Sri Lankan captain kept frantically pointing out that light was getting bad, but the umpires said that play could carry on for a yet a little while longer. The the visitors sent out the physio in a desperate attempt to consume more time, but was sent back by the umpires. But the sun did set eventually depriving India of a result.

  • And that's that, an entertaining final day ends in a draw. India's pacers were spectacular in the last stretch. No one thought a result was possible but India ran their opponents very close.

  • And India finish with 172, courtesy some handy knocks from Jadeja, Saha and Shami. But they would have take anything that would have come their way, given the situation they were in. Suranga Lakmal has been absolutely brilliant this innings and Lahiru Gamage, who was erratic on the first day, came in steaming in to pick up Pujara first up and Shami later on. Stay with us as we get back to you with live action coming up.

  • Just to get you up to speed on what happened yesterday... It was not an ideal way to get through the day for India. If it was Suranga Lakmal who played wrecker-in-chief on the first day, it was Dasun Shanaka who prised out two more wickets to leave India tottering at 74 for 5. The good news though is that Cheteshwar Pujara is still there, stoic in approach, with Wriddhiman Saha. Will they be able to set a competitive total or will it be another pacers day out? Stay with us for more.

  • Good morning and welcome to Day Three of what has been a stop-start Test match at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, thanks to some incessant rain.The forecast for today though, seems a lot better and the covers are off the ground now. Hopefully, we get a full day's play.

  • And that was all for today, folks. An engrossing session in the morning followed by incessant rain. India finish Day Two with their scorecard reading 74 for 5 in 32.5 overs with Pujara and Saha at the crease. Sri Lanka will be mighty pleased with the way they have gone about business in the last two days. Hopefully, it may clear up tomorrow! Until then!

  • Slight drizzle there. Sri Lanka won't mind though. Pujara has been steady throughout. India lost Rahane and Ashwin, but Saha will look to consolidate with Puajara. Shanaka joins the wickets column with two scalps and Suranga Lakmal has continued with his impressive spell.

  • Lahiru Gamage to start the proceedings on Day Two.

  • Matthew Hayden sounds the gong and the two batsmen walk out to the middle.

  • And to just give you a recap of what happened. It was a stop-start first day, thanks to incessant rains and once the match started, it was a Lakmal show for the rest of the evening as he dented India's top order reducing them to 17 for 3. India will hope that Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane will bail them out of the dire situation that they are in.

  • Good morning and welcome to Day Two of the first Test between India and Sri Lanka at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. I am Aaron Abhishek and I will be taking you through today's sesssions.

  • That's all from us for the day. Aharon Abhishek, my colleague, will be there tomorrow to take you through the proceedings on day two. Till then, have a good time!

  • Folks, we have an update. The play finally has been called off on what has been a start-stop first day. So after 11.5 overs, India are struggling on 17 for 3, with all the three wickets going to Suranga Lakmal. For India, Pujara is still there fighting out, along with Rahane.

  • Stumps

  • Meanwhile, Suranga Lakmal's bowling analysis at the moment read 6-6-0-3.

  • And the light is actually quite bad as the umpires check it on the light meters. The Indian batsmen are happy to go off, the Sri Lankan fielders quite reluctant to go, but they have to.

    S Lakmal to K Rahul, OUT, Jaffa! What a ball first up. Rahul departs for a golden duck. No half-century this time for him. It was a perfect delivery, length ball, pitched just outside off, Rahul had to play at it and the extra bounce induced an edge. Dickwella made no mistake behind the wickets. K Rahul c N Dickwella b S Lakmal 0(1) [4s-0] [6s-0]

  • KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan walk out to the middle to open the innings, Suranga Lakmal to start the bowling attack.

  • Well, it was just a passing drizzle. The players are back on the field and finally, we will witness play for the first time on this opening day.

  • Oh my my. The rain has stopped the play even before it started and off go the players. The groundsmen are back with the covers as the drizzle gets heavier.

  • VVS Laxman rings the bell as both the openers come to the crease.

  • So, as expected, and also hinted by Kohli yesterday, India have gone with Rahul and Dhawan, and given the green top and a bit of moisture underneath, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been drafted in the playing XI.

  • Virat Kohli: We would have bowled first as well. Overcast conditions but we are looking forward to the challenge of batting first as well. I don't think it has so many demons. The spinners should come into play from day three onwards. In general, the surface is not that damp but has got good grass cover. We have got five batters, two allrounders in Ashwin and Jadeja, three fast bowlers - Shami, Umesh, and Bhuvi.

  • Dinesh Chandimal: We will have a bowl first actually. Lots of moisture and grass cover on the wicket. We played some really good cricket in the UAE. We are quite confident coming into the series and looking forward to do well. We are going to play six batters, four bowlers and a fast bowling allrounder.

  • Sri Lanka Won the Toss & Elected to Field

  • Good news guys. The rain gods have listened to our prayers and we are all set for the toss.

  • Most of the covers are off and the ground staff are working in full flow. The next inspection is at 12:45pm.

  • Bad news, guys. It's quite damp there even though the rain has stopped for the moment. The next inspection will be at 12:10pm IST. Meanwhile, an early lunch has been taken.

  • Some good news, folks. The rain has stopped and the covers are slowly coming off.

  • Well, at the moment, the rain is playing hide and seek at Eden Gardens.

  • Well, but for all that, we might have to wait. A light drizzle in Kolkata and the covers are back on.

  • On the other hand, Dinesh Chandimal, the Sri Lankan captain, hinted that they might go with five bowlers and six batters. "You need wickets to win against a good team like India and we need to take 20 wickets," said Chandimal.

  • Five bowlers and six batters hints Chandimal

    Having Angelo Mathews around even if he cant bowl adds to the confidence of the team says Sri Lanka Test captain

  • There are a few happy headaches of Virat Kohli though. Which two will make the cut among M Vijay, KL Rahul, and Shikhar Dhawan, while in bowling department do India field two seamers or three.

  • Here is Saurabh Somani's match preview:

  • Odds stacked heavily in Indias favour

    Inclement weather might prove an irritant as Kohlis men seek to extend dominance over Sri Lanka

  • Hello and welcome to the first Test between India and Sri Lanka from Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Till date, Sri Lanka have played 17 Tests in India but are yet to register a win. And if they want to change that record, they will have to pull a rabbit out of the hat.

Rangana Herath then took charge scoring runs at a good nick, although looking ungainly at times, he was particularly good against the short ball. Dilruwan Perera was excessively defensive in his approach but fell to a peach by Shami late in the session. All in all, Lanka are well on top. India will try to contain that lead to under a hundred.

  • Welcome to our coverage of the fourth day of the first Test between India and Sri Lanka from Kolkata's Eden Gardens. More than half the overs have been wiped out to rain over the previous three days but such is the nature of the surface that we might still get a result. Sri Lanka have their noses in front, but expect India to fightback. The skies are clear today, so expect a full day of play.

  • Bad light and that may as well be stumps. Engrossing day's play at the Eden Gardens and the action promises to get better tomorrow! My colleague Rishad D'souza will take you through the proceedings tomorrow, until then!

  Full commentary

  • So Sri Lanka are to chase 231. As per estimates made by commentators on air, Sri Lanka will have just about 32-33 overs to get there owing to the early sunset in Kolkata. Virat Kohli played a magnificent knock, he was outstanding post lunch, particularly after Ashwin and Saha fell.

  • That was an eventful session. India started off decently with Rahul and Pujara displaying intent, but Rahul lost focus soon and overbalanced to Lakmal, getting bowled. Lakmal then had his tail up and removed Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane soon afterwards. Kohli had anxious moments but started looking comfortable. But just when he was starting to up the scoring again, Jadeja, who looked patient in defence until then, fell at the other end to Dilruwan Perera towards the end of the session. Kohli had Ashwin for company at stumps. Chances of a result look bleak unless Sri Lanka effect a collapse or India score quick runs a go for a sporting declaration. Surface still has some spice in it.

  • DRS drama No message from dressing room to Dilruwan Perera say Sri Lanka Cricket

    Herath backs up teams stance Bhuvneshwar wants to wait for match referees verdict before commenting

  • There was a little bit of DRS drama on the fourth day. After Dilruwan Perera was ruled out to Mohammed Shami, he started walking towards the dressing room, when he suddenly decided to turn around and signal for a review, which reversed the decision. Sri Lanka have insisted that there was no signalling from the dressing room.

  • Hello one and all! It's the fifth and final day. The match seems poised for a draw at this point. After a dismal first innings owing largely to a visious pitch, India have been spectacular in their second dig and have worked themselves to a 49-run lead for the loss of just one wicket.

  • And that's that, the sun's set on our hopes of getting more overs in, still we got in about 25 more minutes of play as compared to the previous day. India were outstanding in their second dig and as good as they were Sri Lanka simply seemed to toothless without the extraordinary support that their bowlers enjoyed on day 1 and 2 of the game. Dhawan and KL Rahul were flawless for most part of their innings. Rahul started faltering later, but Dhawan is the one who departed, getting a feather to the keeper on an attempted slog. Rahul is still out there batting on 73, he will hopeful to add 27 more tomorrow. The draw seems the most likeliest result, but then again this is cricket and stranger things have happened. The hosts have fought back admirably and expect more of the same tomorrow. I'll meet you right here, don't forget to tune in.

    D Perera to K Rahul, FOUR, full and outside half, drives that to extra cover with an extra dose of style, nice start to the final session.

  • Very uninspiring bowling by Sri Lanka after taking such a sizeable lead allowing India to work themselves into a comfort zone. Dasun Shanaka and Lahiru Gamage simply didn't have enough pace on the ball to trouble the batsmen now with the pitch having evened out to a great degree. The Indian openers were seldom threatened as they took India to 70/0, reducing the deficit to 52 runs. Suranga Lakmal bowled just four overs, two of which came after much of the shine of the new ball was lost, and even then he was down on pace.

  Full commentary

  • So that's it from us for this first Test. The rains ruined the first two days but in the limited action possible the Sri Lankans bowled exceedingly well on a pitch that would respond. Their batsmen then earned them a sizeable lead, but India's openers then did a good job to wipe out the lead and then build a solid platform for a lead. The middle-order had bit of a failure, but Kohli stood tall with a magnificent hundred. Post declaration, no one expected India to come close to a win, but boy they did! Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were absolutely fantastic. Watch out for them come the second Test although one suspects that the spinners will have a bigger role to play at Nagpur. do join us then. Until then!

  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar (Man of the Match) (4/88 and 4/8): Frankly speaking it was difficult to bowl in the second innings because it was dry. But it was reverse swinging so we tried to use that to good effect. Yes we did believe we could win, we thought if we could get two-three quick wickets we could win this.

  • Player of the match - Bhuvneshwar Kumar

  • Virat Kohli: It was important to make something out of this game. As you mentioned the conditions changed drastically. We thought if we get stuck in with our bowling effort we wouldn't let them get too far ahead. We believed in our strengths, that was the key in the final stages of the game, we were just three short. All in all, we are very proud of our performance in this Test. He's bowling a heavier ball than earlier. He is a massive contender to start every Test for India. He's a massive part of our plans going forward, across formats. I think as soon as we lost Wriddhi, me and Bhuvi just thought of having some fun out there, the shots came off. I thought if I didn't play with intent there is nothing to gain from this Test. I hope to keep continuing this way, particularly when the team needs me.

  • Dinesh Chandimal: Yeah, it's good to win the toss in Test cricket. We fought well and competed well. It was a good Test match. We fought really well and played well as a team, but unfortunately in the last 10-15 overs we put a bit of pressure on ourselves. Lakmal is really good. He is the one you can trust as a captain. We're happy Rangana scored runs, he is a fighter. We have to learn how to bat well in the second innings. Even against Pakistan in UAE we didn't do well in second innings. Once we can do that we'll do a lot better in the future.

  • In addition there were a lot of other miscellenous attractions. First Dickwella got a mouthful from Ashwin for cashing in on India's error in placing three fielders behind square on the leg side and pointed it out to the umpires. The Shami was stopped in his run up a few times by Dickwella. A fired up Shami bowled an even better spell after that. SChandimal the Sri Lankan captain kept frantically pointing out that light was getting bad, but the umpires said that play could carry on for a yet a little while longer. The the visitors sent out the physio in a desperate attempt to consume more time, but was sent back by the umpires. But the sun did set eventually depriving India of a result.

  • And that's that, an entertaining final day ends in a draw. India's pacers were spectacular in the last stretch. No one thought a result was possible but India ran their opponents very close.
