India won the toss for the third time in a row and chose to bat first. "He has been bowling consistently on the right spot for them", Dhawan observed. "It will only help the game get better", he added.

Jadeja accumulated six demerit points inside a 24-month period which means he will be suspended from one Test or two ODIs or two T20Is, whatever comes first.

Chameera meanwhile, last played a Test in South Africa previous year, but featured in four of the five ODIs against Zimbabwe - the series that Sri Lanka lost 2-3.

"The Chinaman bowler (Lakshan Sadakan) is very nice".

"Lot of things happen in the heat of the moment you end up doing".

India has won the first 2 matches of the series and clinched the trophy.

"To play consistent cricket, you need to make sure that players are playing on a regular basis. As a team we have something up our sleeves", Chandimal said.

But Shapovalov broke again in the ninth game and clinically served out to the delight of the crowd. Schwartzman's only ATP win was on clay in Istanbul previous year .

"So we certainly don't want to take anything lightly".

"At the end, the way Vishwa bowled in the last two spells was also good.I think the way he's going he has a future and potential", added the former paceman. "Might as well enjoy the time you're in the middle and get as many runs as you can".

"Managing players who don't get a chance is also a skill". We were discussing that in the dressing room just today. So in professional sport they understand this aspect.

Dhawan commended the bowlers for doing a good job. Sri Lanka on the other hand have looked clueless against a strong Indian team, floundering in their pursuit for success at home. "We're giving out full effort to that but we can not control the ultimate result", Chandimal said on the eve of the third and final Test here. So we gave him a rest in this game.

On the pitch, which he has not yet seen, Kohli said it wasn't much of a concern. "So we are looking forward to that". India have never blanked a team out 3-0 overseas in their Test history. We have already won the series. The third and final Test match of the series will feature a few changes in both the sides, with Axar Patel expected to replace Ravindra Jadeja in the Indian setup, Rangna Hearth would miss the match for Sri Lanka and could be replaced by a new face.

A guy like Kuldeep Yadav is willing to bowl in any situation. Each batsman has his own plan on how to get there.

After the first session on Saturday, when Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul piled on the runs, it looked like India were on their way to another 600 score in the first innings of a Test match against Sri Lanka. I came to know about the record (7 consecutive fifties), but it's not great to hold such records.
