Sri Lanka recalled Dushmantha Chameera for the final Test against IndiaMore
Sri Lankan spinners struck with five wickets even as India rode on openerShikhar Dhawan's whirlwind century to reach 329/6 at stumps on the opening day of the third and final Test at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium here on Saturday.
Left-arm wrist-spinner Lakshan Sandakan then got Cheteshwar Pujara (eight) to edge one to slip as Sri Lanka continued to fight back.
"Because it shouldn't vary according to how the situation is looked at", Kohli said in the pre-match press conference ahead of the third and final Test against Sri Lanka.
Merkel takes swipe at Trump's fiery North Korea comments
He added that "when it comes close to fight, the one who is stronger and wiser should be the first to step back from the brink". Trump says he has yet to speak with the governor of the territory, but says, "I feel that they will be very safe, believe me".
Rahul missed out on another Test hundred, miscuing one straight to Dimuth Karunaratne at mid-on off left-arm spinner Pushpakumara in the 40th over. India have comfortably dominated Sri Lanka in every department, netting their biggest away win in the first test, and defeating the Lankans by an innings and 53 runs in the second. The interval was duly pushed back by half an hour, and Pandya went on to dominate an unbroken tenth-wicket stand of 66, racing from 50 off 61 balls to 108 off 93, with the No. 11 Umesh Yadav scoring 3 off 14 in that time. The duo put on the highest opening stand on Lankan soil in Test cricket - 188 - beating a 24-year old record.
Ravichandran Ashwin (31) looked compact but became leftarm seamer Vishwa Fernando's scalp at the fag end of the day.
For Rahul, it was his seventh successive fifty in Test cricket overtaking Gundapppa Viswanath and Rahul Dravid (both with six half-centuries each). "For us it's more of a positive thing than a hindrance that we didn't have practice a day before the game because we are in a good zone", said Kohli.
Dhawan went on to score 119 off 123 deliveries, which included 17 boundaries, before he was brilliantly caught by Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal at square leg off the bowling of Pushpakumara.
In the second Test at Colombo, Rahul scored 57 in India's only innings. The former then fell immediately afterwards caught behind off Lakshan Sandakan (4-132).
After winning the toss, Indian skipper Virat Kohli said that he wants to make use of the Pallekele pitch which is believed to break up quickly. Fast and swinging the ball both ways, Shami troubled Sri Lanka's left-handed opening pair with the away going ball, and kept them guessing by bringing the ball in, making it hard to leave the balls outside the off-stump.
Six of a family burn to death in Karachi van 'cylinder fire'
Rescue teams arrived at the scene and shifted four injured people to Civil Hospital after pulling them out from the van. While the victim's relatives have reached the scene, they were unable to comment on the matter due to shock and grief.
