Last Cricket Test between India, Sri Lanka to begin tomorrow

Shastri had said: "This team has been together for two years now".

This was in breach of article 2.2.8 of the player's code of conduct which deals with "throwing a ball (or any other item of cricket equipment such as a water bottle) at or near a Player, Player Support Personnel, Umpire, Match Referee or any other third person in an inappropriate and/or unsafe manner during an International Match".

Indian batsmen are in a good form with all of them amongst runs. Although the management was on-site taking inputs on how the pitch was changed at the last minute, it still can't beat the first-hand info that Kohli would have been apprised of had he been at the stadium himself. India have already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series with victories inside four days both in Galle and Colombo.

They have out batted Sri Lanka, out bowled Sri Lanka, and dominated them through nearly all passages of play so far.

Earlier it was speculated that the Indian cricket board might give the captain rest for limited over games to be played against Sri Lanka.

To put it mildly, India have all bases covered, for all conditions and pitches, while Sri Lanka won't come close to putting their best eleven on the park thanks to injuries and recurring niggles. Shreyas Iyer, who scored a tournament-winning unbeaten 140 in the final of the three-nation "A" series in South Africa recently, could be one of the lucky ones to get a call-up. And with that, the records list made a slight shift. If the grass is trimmed before the start of play and that could mean the India go in with two spinners and two pacers. While Ganguly's squad had some important victories overseas, Dhoni's team had a terrible record against the likes of England and Australia. Generally, it's the home team that is the former, and the latter being the away team, as it happens so often nowadays. There have been enough instances in the past when the Indian team has done the same to visiting teams in the sub-continent. Not only their batsmen, bowlers like R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have run through the opponents batting line-up.

Now you can't exactly blame them for not knowing what to do in Kandy, in the final Test, where they hope to avoid the ignominy of a 3-0 clean sweep.

The performances against the big three will set a precedence how Kohli's team will be judged and compared to their contemporaries from previous eras. If they win the third Test, Kohli will be the first captain to do it.
