The Live telecast of India vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test, Day 5 at Nagpur. After 103 overs, SL 299/5. Lankans have drawn the Test which is a remarkable feat after being behind in the Test for most of it, but credit has to be given to Dhananjaya who scored a century before retiring hurt. This draw should give immense confidence to the Sri Lankan team in transition.
The key for them will be their most experienced batsman Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Matthews are still there. They were the centurions from the 1st innings and will have to bat out of their skins to save the Test match. It will be difficult as the two Indian spinners Jadeja and Ashwin will be full of confidence and they will bowl on a last day track, which is bound to help them.
Pitch: It seems the pitch will be double-paced but if the sun comes out the cracks will widen and that will help the Indian spinners to come into the game. There is a lot for the seamers to exploit.
