3rd test match between India, Sri Lanka to start at Pallekele tomorrow

3rd test match between India, Sri Lanka to start at Pallekele tomorrow

"It will only help the game get better". We mustn't forget the fact that we're up against the World's number one team. His offences ranged from running on the pitch to throwing the ball dangerously at an opponent. Captain Virat Kohli is likely to be rested for the upcoming limited-over series against Sri Lanka. India is scheduled to play 3 Tests, 13 ODIs and 11 T20s-between September and December at home before heading to South Africa and it is highly unlikely that Kohli will want to stay away from the action during the home season.

However, things haven't looked as rosy in the Sri Lankan camp off late. "Especially in the last two to three years".

"I think the intent counts nowadays and those are the things a player needs to keep in mind".

The series has been pocketed but Kohli ruled out making wholesale changes to the side in the inconsequential match.

Jadeja was suspended from the third Test of the ongoing India-Sri Lanka series after he earned three demerit points when he fielded the ball off his own bowling and threw it at the batsman "in an offensive manner".

"To play consistent cricket, you need to make sure that players are playing on a regular basis. He has proved himself in Dharamsala and has a good chance of playing tomorrow".

"So we certainly don't want to take anything lightly".

"You can not walk into the team so easily, and you have to wait; that's the rule of cricket", he said. But every time players of my team are getting injured. "I don't know where this came from, but I have no problems in playing", Kohli answered to a query on team selection. In professional sport, they understand this aspect. "We are ahead by 2-0, so in the next match the aim is to give a similar performance as the last two matches as a team in batting, bowling and fielding. We feel absolutely comfortable going into the Test match even though we didn't practice today". "Yesterday we took an off voluntarily and today it just happened to rain but the day before that we had a good practice". Also, what you need to understand in places like Sri Lanka, it is very hot and humid. Sometime you end up doing too much in practice, and are not able to recover in time. There has been talk that a few of the big stars might rest given India sent pretty much a full-strength squad to the West Indies, too.

"We haven't yet decided our team because of the weather".

Two days before the match, it was hard to differentiate the 22-yards from the lush green outfield of the Pallekele stadium. "But I haven't yet really gone in (to a Test either as captain or batsman) without looking at the wicket at least 8-10 hours before the game before this".

India counterpart Virat Kohli said the chance to become the first India side to sweep Sri Lanka 3-0 in Sri Lanka will take care of any complacency.

With the series done and dusted already, India will fancy its chances at a clean sweep before heading into the shorter formats.

One of those from the bench nearly certain to play on the morrow is Kuldeep Yadav, the left-arm chinaman bowler who is set to replace the suspended Ravindra Jadeja in the playing XI.
