India are set to play three Test matches against Sri Lanka in their turf and so far they seem to be in the better situation, although they have lost their regular opener KL Rahul. Sri Lanka, without the services of Dinesh Chandimal, will have to get their act Akeem Dent Womens Jersey together with Rangana Herath at the helm of affairs. India captain Virat Kohli has always preferred to go in with five bowlers and with Hardik Pandya in the side, India can afford to that without playing a batsman short in the Test match. With Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja doing well in the home season, it is more than likely that the visitors will probably drop a seamer and try and fit in Pandya in the line-up.
Kohli hinted that Pandya may get his maiden Test cap against Sri Lanka on Thursday as he chose to underline the all-rounder's wicket-taking ability on all kind of tracks.
India had lost to Sri Lanka at Galle during the 2015 series when Kohli went in with a combination of five http://www.texansonlineofficialstore.com specialist bowlers with a batsman short in the playing XI.
However, the presence of Pandya, who bowls fast medium close to 140 km per hour and is a capable batsman, provides Kohli with the balance that he seeks.
"Last time, we felt we probably were a batsman short and the fifth bowler did not do much in the game. We have those options again, but we have great balance in the side as well. We have got a guy like Hardik Pandya, who is a wicket-taking bowler.
"Every game that he plays, on any surface, he has a knack of picking wickets. He has a great chance of playing as well," Kohli explained.
He referred to how Stuart Binny's small contributions became important in next two Tests that India won in 2015. "In the next two Tests on that 2015 tour, we played an all-rounder (Binny) and that made all the difference. The extra batsmen would give us more solidity. We have taken learning from that and we will surely apply those straightaway in the series instead of getting a feel of how things will go. You need to have your best strike bowlers in order to pick up 20 wickets."
Kohli reckoned that the Galle International Stadium pitch Adam Joseph Duhe Jersey would be good to bat on.
"There is a good grass covering and we expect it to be a good batting wicket. It was rolled yesterday (on Monday) and I am sure today (Tuesday), it would have been rolled in very nicely as well. And underneath the surface, it looks very hard. There is grass covering on it to keep the surface bound up and it should be a very good batting track," the Indian skipper observed.
In absence of Rahul, who is down with viral fever, Shikhar Dhawan will open the innings with Abhinav Mukund.
"Rahul is an established player and he has done very well for us in all formats http://www.dolphinsshopnfl.com/Authentic-Andre-Branch-Jersey over the past year. He is a very solid player, but these kinds of scenarios present opportunities to other players in the team to step up and show what they are capable of.
"They can have a solid performance and stay with the team for a longer period and get more chances to play in the future. So, our players look at these scenarios as opportunities and it is a great opportunity for Abhinav or Shikhar to string in strong performances again," said the skipper.
