India beat Sri Lanka by 304 runs, take 1-0 lead

26 Jul 2017 | 01:27 PM Live cricket score India vs Sri Lanka first Test match Day 1

"If I am part of the team, not part of the team, again, I will try to do my best wherever I am", he said. "We need to find out how we can do better than this moving forward", said Herath. And, the hosts eventually lost the game inside four days.

At the end of day's play Mathews (54*) was accompanied by Dilruwan Perera (8*) and they would both try to cut the deficit as far as possible. They played outstanding cricket in all three departments. They deserve all the credit. A enormous victory target of 550 was out of question for the hosts but they fizzled out in the final session of the fourth day to finish on 245 in 76.5 overs - their innings terminated with injured skipper Rangana Herath and Asela Gunaratne ruled out. "Losing Asela was a massive blow for us". They did capitalise on run-scoring opportunities, as this atypical Galle pitch didn't provide much support to the Indian spinners. "I had swelling because I had fracture three years ago in the same area". Having just punched Jadeja to cover off the back foot, he tried the same shot off the next ball.

The Men in Blue didn't have a great start to their second innings, just like the first one, as both the first-innings centurions Shikhar Dhawan (14) and Cheteshwar Pujara (15) got out cheaply. With six more sessions left, winning the match from should not be a tough task for the Indian side if the rain stays away. "We bounced back well but he had by then got off to a terrific start", a dejected Herath said.

Rangana Herath fronted the media after Sri Lanka's 304-run loss to India at Galle.

Unusually for a Galle track, the quicks outperformed the spinners on what is traditionally one of the most spin-friendly tracks in the world.

Portman votes down Obamacare repeal, says it would be 'disastrous'
On the Senate floor, McCain said he would not vote for the health care bill until a number of provisions supported by Gov. Rand Paul introduced the amendment - within two years, and come up with a replacement plan in the meantime.

As a couple of partnerships blossomed, it certainly looked like we might have a fifth day to watch out for, with Sri Lanka showing a bit of fight. There's no point in blaming anyone after you lose. We shouldn't blame anyone else. The second over of the innings was bowled by Pradeep, who bowled fast.

Burdened with an improbable target, Sri Lanka needed a solid opening stand but their hopes were dashed when Mohammed Shami bowled Upul Tharanga for 10, a relief for Kohli who had dropped the batsman at second slip in the same over. "He was outstanding in this game and his effort was fantastic", he signed off.
