Hi there. Welcome to the second Test between Sri Lanka and India. Much fun was had in the first Test. Moooraaleeeee's 800 and Malinga's comeback were great to watch. What lies ahead of us in this Test?

Pitch Ten Sports' Ranil Abeynayeke reckons the grass is well rolled and it's dry grass. He says it should be a hard pitch and a good one for the batsmen. "Nice and dry and flat".

We have quite a few injuries going into this Test. Malinga out. Gambhir out due to knee injury and Yuvraj Singh out because he is down with fever.

Toss Sri Lanka choose to bat

Sanga: "SSC wicket usually turns out to be a fantastic wicket. We got Suraj Randiv, Ajantha Mendis, Dilhara Fernando and Dammika Prasad."

Dhoni: "It looks like a good track. There should be more bounce for bowlers. It should come on well for the batsmen. Raina and Vijay are in for Yuvraj and Gambhir."

Prasanth has had a bad breakfast. And no love. "Am i missing something. Why in the world would anyone start a TEST match on a Monday. They have the games on Weekdays and wonder why no one shows up at the games. Is it the problem of ICC, or the individual cricket board's responsibility? Especially on the subcontinent do we have games on weekdays and no games on weekends. What is the wrong with the schedulers?" Ouch again!
