Sri Lanka look to lift the game in second Test


Having done all the hard work in Calcutta, Sri Lanka nearly ruined things in the final session of the first Test before managing to draw the game. They will be looking to raise the standards in the second Test in Nagpur starting today in a bid to win their maiden Test match in India. Australia and India are the only countries the Sri Lankans have not won a Test match.

Apart from the playing 11 in Calcutta, Sri Lanka added chinaman bowler Lakshan Sandakan in a 12-man squad for the game and will make a call on which way to go on the morning of the Test match. There is a grass cover on the wicket although it’s not as thick as the one found in Calcutta.

Test cricket in Nagpur was played in Vidarbha Cricket Ground from 1969 to 2006, but a new stadium came up some 20 kilometers from the city in 2008 and since then Test cricket is being played at this location.
