    If Dilruwan is picked as a #7 batsman who can bowl, why the **** was De Silva not retained? He is younger, got more potential and is an actual batsman to boot.

    Lanka selectors need a new career to destroy after Tharanga proved them wrong when they actually gave him a run of games in the side

    I mean he bowled like 8 overs yesterday. Karunaratne bowled almost as much as him.

    I'm guessing he'll bowl a lot more in the second innings.

    There will be a day when India can play 3 seamers (Shami, Umesh/Bhuvi, Ishant) + Kuldeep and Hardik in an away tour match, maybe in Australia. So its good to see if these guys have something with the bat as otherwise, that lower order would suck.

    Am I the only one who finds these defensive tactics strange from Sri Lanka? I understand them playing defensive as long as Kohli was there but the moment he was dismissed and India were not even at 300, I think, but they just spread the field and allowed singles all the time to both Saha and Ashwin. Sure, they dragged the run rate down but I dont think it is a problem in this game. The pitch is gonna get progressively worse to bat on and the longer India spend batting out there, even if they are not scoring many runs, the better it is for them. The lesser time left in the game, the lesser the importance of these runs that were not scored or scored slowly. SL just seem resigned to playing for a draw. AFAIC, anything less than 500 batting first would be a disappointment for India and SL should still back themselves to bat big at least once in this game. Just astounding to see them not even TRY to get a wicket.

    Pandya is brilliant against spinners and doesn't suck against pacers. If he improved his bowling he'd be a genuinely world class all rounder.

    Jadeja, Ashwin, Pandya makes for a serious lower middle order.

    Pandya's attack range is what makes me so excited about this guy.
