For me, it's always the team first, says Ravichandran Ashwin

Sri Lankan cricket great Asanka Gurusinha has termed India skipper Virat Kohli as one of the world’s greatest

The Indians were off to a rocky start in their second essay with Shikhar Dhawan - star of the Indian first innings - virtually gifting his wicket to Dilruwan Perera by offering an easy catch to backward point.

Dinesh Chandimal is expected to return to lead the Sri Lanka team in the second Test against India at the SSC next week, after recovering from a bout of pneumonia that kept him out of the first Test in Galle.

The last time Cheteshwar Pujara played a Test match in Sri Lanka, his career was at the crossroads.

"All credit goes to the India team", Herath said. "To have this opportunity to be part of the indian team is such a huge bonus", said Abhinav."I take every game as an opportunity, that's all". Riding on Virat Kohli's fascinating 17th Test ton, India scored 240/3 before declaring the innings and thus giving them a target of 550 runs.

England to bat in third South African Test
However, under gloomy conditions, the home side suffered first blow when Keaton Jennings was dismissed for a nine-ball duck. Over 76: England 249-5 (Stokes 58, Bairstow 32) Tidy over from Maharaj with Bairstow scrambling a singleoff the final ball.

Mendis got out at 108 after making 36 off 71 deliveries with three boundaries as Sri Lanka slid down to 116-4 in no time. "So we had to work on getting wickets and we did", he added.

In the second innings, Virat Kohli is back with a bang as he ended his poor run of form in the longer format by scoring an unbeaten 103 on day four.

Popular perceptions do not perturb him, which is the reason why India skipper Virat Kohli does not believe in counting the number of innings in which he had a dry run. In the pics, they were seen chilling in the resort alongside KL Rahul, who missed the opening Test due to viral flu. India will be playing Test matches away and it was important for Kohli to have some runs under his belt.

And when it comes to T20 cricket, the Indian batting mainstay has managed to garner 1,709 runs at 53.40 with 16 fifties. "We lost in the Zimbabwe series for the first time ever in Sri Lanka that means we're not performing well", Murali, who is the spin bowling consultant of Bengal's Vision 2020 programme, said. The injuries to Asela Gunaratne and Rangana Herath during their 304-run loss in the Test has put them on life support. "I won't say that we don't have areas that we look to improve on; as I mentioned before there are things that we can still improve on, but very happy with the performance". You grow as a cricketer, your technique improves and when you come and play global cricket again, you have some experience of playing first-class cricket and you are always in touch with the game. With Ajinkya Rahane by his side, the duo lifted India's lead past the 500-run mark early into the innings.
