Indian team looked like winning the first test until Sri Lankan team turned table on them in the end. The second test completely belonged to team India. Even though they were under pressure of going one down in the series they played their heart out for a win. Sri Lankan team was determined to register a win to provide a fitting farewell for Sangakkara. But ultimately they couldn't make it for Sangakkara who retired from test cricket.

Kohli played five bowlers at Galle and he adopted an almost same strategy at P Sara Oval in the second test. The only difference was he dropped Harbhajan Singh and took in Stuart Binny. The strategy has provided fruitful result for the team.

R Ashwin has been in an emphatic form. He has clinched 17 wickets in four test innings here in Sri Lanka. He has managed pressure from one end which has helped India dominate in both the test matches. He has got a great support from Amit Mishra. Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav have done a decent job so far.

After Shikhar Dhawan its Murali  Vijay who is out of the series due to injury. This provides Cheteshwar Pujara an opportunity to prove his batting skills. He will open the innings with Lokesh Rahul who already has a test ton to his name now. Ajinkya Rahane now fits well at one down after his fighting ton in the last match. Rohit Sharma slips down to fifth position.

The home team looks in a disarray after losing the second test and would no longer be served by Sangakkara. The team would now look forward for a revival stage with the youngsters chipping in for bright future. Upul Tharanga might enter into the playing XI in place of Sanga.

Some news about the pitch here at Sinhalese Sports Club in Colombo. The pitch serves a tinge of grass with moisture in it. This has come up as a surprise for both the teams. Generally the pitch here at the SSC is flat and high scoring. 

It is hard for either of the captains to predict the nature of this pitch. So no wonders if they postpone their plan to declare the final playing XI.

This has been a very interesting test series so far. We can expect a result here to have a winner. As far as the overall performance is concerned, Indians deserve a test series win here. But cricket is a game full of uncertainties. So let us see who emerges as a winner in the third test of CricBuzz Cup.

India plays South Africa next. Enjoy India vs South Africa live streaming on Star Sports and HotStar.
