The ongoing test match series between India and Sri Lanka is keeping everyone on their toes. The clash between two big titans of the world of cricket is all set for its climax in the third test match starting from 2 December at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground in New Delhi.
The first two days of the test match saw very little play at the Eden Gardens. We witnessed a stellar show from Bhuvneshwar Kumar who took 4 for 8 in 11 overs. KL Rahul scored his 10th Test fifty while skipper Virat Kohli completed his 50th international century. The thrilling match was eventually declared a draw.
The second match of the Sri Lanka Tour at Nagpur was a massive win for the Indian team. Team Sri Lanka started their day in Nagpur after conceding a 405-run first innings lead and eventually crashed to 166 all out in the second session.
The Indian cricket team thrashed the visitors by an innings and 239 runs on the fourth day of the second test match. With this, India took an unassailable 1-0 lead in the series with their joint-biggest test win and Sri Lanka’s biggest defeat. While Kohli took another step for most test wins for India, ace bowler R. Ashwin became the fastest man to 300 Test wickets.
Now all eyes are set on Delhi where the mettle of both the teams will be put to the final test. The deciding match is going to be very crucial for both the sides. If India wins, it is going to be a stunning victory for them. Sri Lanka on the other side needs a win to leave their mark in the series. The Indian team has never lost a test match against Sri Lanka at their home ground. While both the teams have some impeccable players, it is going to be a tough one. So, get ready for the biggest clash of the year.
