India vs Sri Lanka, 1st Test Match

Date & Time: Jul 26, 2017, Wednesday & 10:00 AM IST | 04:30 AM GMT

Venue: Galle International Stadium, Galle

Pitch Report: 

  • There is a grass on the pitch.
  • For the first 2 days track will be good for batting.
  • Bowlers will get good pace and movement from the pitch.
  • Rain could play some part in the game.

Here’s a list of top run-scorers from the series (includes current squad players only): 

  • Angelo Mathews – 339 runs in 6 innings @ an average of 56.50
  • Virat Kohli – 233 runs in 6 innings @ an average of 38.83
  • Rohit Sharma – 202 runs in 6 innings @ an average of 33.66
  • Ajinkya Rahane – 178 runs in 6 innings @ an average of 29.66
  • Shikhar Dhawan – 162 runs in 2 innings @ an average of 81
  • Cheteshwar Pujara – 145 runs in 2 innings @ an average of 145

The two best bowlers, who are also in the current squad, were:

  • R. Ashwin – 21 wickets
  • R. Herath – 15 wickets Expert

Advice:

  • It is a good batting pitch. So take all the top order batsman from both the teams and choose one of them as C or VC for small and grand leagues.
  • You could take Ajinkya Rahane in place of Cheteshwar Pujara as well.
  • All rounders will play crucial role in this match. Choose them using your own instinct and make one of them them C or VC.
  • R. Ashwin is safe and best option as all rounder.
  • Rangana Herath and Umesh Yadav are safe and best option as bowlers.
  • Danushka Gunathilaka/Dhananjaya de Silva, Rohit Sharma/Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar/Mohammed Shami, are risky players. Do not take them in small leagues.

I’m sure this is going to be a awesome match and a thrilling series!
