Stumps: SL 108/4

Another big shout for a LBW at the fag end of the day, it's given not out and India decides against reviewing it. Was that the last over for the day? No. Another over will be bowled and India look to pile more pressure on this wobbly Sri Lanka lineup. Ashwin to bowl and it's a relatively uneventful over as the SL batsmen survive. That's the end of day's play. SL 108/4 after 43 overs. And that's stumps.

16:55 (IST)05 Mar 2022
LBW??? No

That's another wicket and it's another LBW. We are getting a boatload of them today. Sri Lanka review though. Jadeja looks pretty confident. And that's a correct review and Asalanka breathes a sigh of relief and so does Sri Lanka. SL 108/4 after 40 overs.

16:47 (IST)05 Mar 2022

That's another one!!! Another big appeal and de Silva has to walk back. Ashwin takes his second wicket of the match as Sri Lanka wobble. Sri Lanka 103/4 after 38.1 overs.

16:30 (IST)05 Mar 2022

Gone!!!! Will Angelo review? Yes he reviews for the LBW decision. It's the umpire's call and that's been given out. What a breakthrough for India and Bumrah. HUGE HUGE wicket. SL 96/3 after 34 overs.

16:19 (IST)05 Mar 2022
Nissanka survives

Nissanka cleaned up by Bumrah but oh no, he has overstepped. That's a no ball. Very fortunate for Sri Lanka and tough break for India. SL 83/2.

16:06 (IST)05 Mar 2022
Drinks break

It's now time for drinks as Sri Lanka looks to rebuild their momentum on the back of Pathum Nissanka and Angelo Mathews. They have ensured Sri Lanka reach 79/2 after 30 overs.

15:42 (IST)05 Mar 2022

And is that the second Sri Lanka wicket??? Batsman reviews. And it's the Sri Lankan skipper who has to depart. It's an LBW. Sri Lanka 2 down. SL 59/2 after 24.2 overs.

When Shane Warne stood tall amidst ruins for Australia!

From the moment he bamboozled Mike Gatting with the ‘ball of the century’ in Manchester in 1993, Shane Warne loved playing in England. He fancied a bit of banter with the crowd and rolled over hapless English batters for fun, scripting many memorable Ashes victories. He also inspired Australia to a World Cup win with clutch performances against South Africa and Pakistan in the semifinal and final of the 1999 World Cup in England. Read

15:16 (IST)05 Mar 2022
Ashwin strikes!

R Ashwin strikes and India has the first wicket. Ashwin traps Lahiru Thirimanne in front. The Sri Lankan opener departs for 17. This is the sixth time Ashwin has dismissed Thirimanne in Test cricket. IND (574 for 8 declared) vs SL  (48 for 1 in 18.2 overs)  

15:00 (IST)05 Mar 2022
Positive approach from SL openers!

A back-to-back boundary off Jayant Yadav by the Lahiru Thirimanne has broken the shackles and helped the scoreboard move.  IND (574 for 8 declared) vs SL  (41 for 0 in 15 overs) 

14:51 (IST)05 Mar 2022
4 maidens on the trot!

Indian spinners are tightening the screws. The Ashwin-Yadav pair has bowled four maidens on the trot. The Sri Lankan openers are just trying to negotiate both the off-spinners. IND (574 for 8 declared) vs SL  (24 for 0 in 12 overs)

14:44 (IST)05 Mar 2022
Spin from both ends!

Jayant Yadav from the other end now, Both the off-spinners are operating against both the left-handed Sri Lankan openers. IND (574 for 8 declared) vs SL  (24 for 0 in 10 overs)

14:30 (IST)05 Mar 2022
Here is Ashwin!

The formalities are done with pacers. Here is Ravichandran Ashwin with the four over old new ball. With both Karunaratne and Thirimanne being the southpaws, it is a no brainer why Rohit brought in Ashwin so early. IND (574 for 8 declared) vs SL  (21 for 0 in 5 overs)

14:22 (IST)05 Mar 2022
SL start steady

Sri Lanka has started steady with Karunaratne and Thirimanne already itting 2 fours in 3 overs. Sri Lanka are 14/0 after 3 overs. They'll look to continue in this way if they have any chance of reaching the astronomical target that India has set.

14:13 (IST)05 Mar 2022
Sri Lanka start chase

Karunaratne and Thirimanne are at the crease. Karunaratne is on strike. Shami will open the attack. Virat Kohli gets a guard of honour by the Indian players.

Sample these few deliveries from Mohammed Siraj to Virat Kohli in the Mohali nets on Wednesday afternoon. One zipped from short of a length past Kohli’s outside edge. Moments later, a slightly fuller one zipped through again and sent off stump for a walk. It seemed to take an eternity for the stumps to be put in place. Finally Siraj bustled in once more and bowled a perfectly acceptable good length ball. Kohli’s front foot sprung into action and the cover drive slammed into the side of the net. How many times have we seen that response in Test cricket from him. You keep beating him outside off, but all he needs is for you to give him that inch of an opening – it is not even an opening for most batsmen – and he hits the gap at extra cover.

It was certainly not Kohli’s day in the nets, though, especially against the spinners. R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Saurabh Kumar, all of them troubled him, even a local left-arm spinner bowled him twice. It is another matter that Kohli went after the last one mercilessly thereafter. (Read More)
