3rd Test between India and Srilanka - 1st Day Review

Another good day of Cricket. Both teams share the honors at the end of the day. But with Herath's wicket, the momentum is towards India.

Lanka could not properly capitalise on the opening stand provided by Dilshan and Pranavitana. It could have attained a better position, if they manage the opening stand properly.

Sreesanth looked unsettled in the first spell, but in the second, he was again into good rythem.  Zahir is a bit disappointing in this series. I am some how not convinced with OJHA. He looked more like a one day or T-20 bowler, who looks to contain more, rather than attack and taking wickets.

But, India must be feeling reasonably happy with the way things went after the opening stand. Interesting day ahead tomorrow. It is also interesting to see how Murali and Herath bowl on this wicket.
