"Obviously there is excitement". The most experienced frontline quick in the battery is Lahiru Kumara, who has played all of seven Tests. Sri Lanka, however, have put up some inspiring performances, but they failed to play as a cohesive unit.

"You can not walk into the team so easily, and you have to wait; that's the rule of cricket", he said.

In response to Shastri's comments, where he had pleased Virat Kohli and Co calling it the best Indian team in last two decades, Azharuddin said the Indian coach is being disrespectful to himself too as he was also a part of the teams that played in last two decades. So I have got to learn a lot from them, especially playing Test cricket with them. If you can do that, it will help either win the game or draw it.

"He turned the game around for us so he has ability, which is very rare to find", Kohli said of the young spinner who made an impressive debut against Australia in March. Karunaratne, on the other hand, is the fourth highest run-getter in the calendar year and will look to continue in the same mould.

The nature of the pitch may prompt Kohli to play his third specialist seamer in Bhuvneshwar Kumar in place of the suspended Ravindra Jadeja. "We had a chat with him three days ago and after that the players look confident", Chandimal said.

While on Friday morning you could scarcely tell the pitch from the outfield, so green was that strip in the valley, things had changed by afternoon. I know what to speak about to the committee.

Pradeep was injured during the first day of the Second Test, which Sri Lanka lost by an innings and 53 runs, and was ruled out for at least two weeks with a hamstring tear. Besides Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis's centuries, which delayed an innings loss in the last match, not much has worked in hosts' favour. The latest omission of players include opener Danushka Gunathilaka (dropped) and the ace spinner Rangana Herath (back injury).

However, Yadav also stated that playing the sweep shot can also result in chances of a wicket, specially LBW and bowled. Overall the runs have been sporadic, the wickets taken nothing to gloat about and the playing surfaces haven't exactly bolstered the home squad. I just wanted to show what skill I have. "Anil (Kumble) sir and Ajinkya (Rahane) bhai both told me to just enjoy my bowling and do what I do in nets or what I have been doing since childhood".

With India already having won the Test series against Sri Lanka, skipper Virat Kohli wants his boys not to get complacent and rather focus on their job during the third and final Test of the series beginning Saturday at the Pallekele International Stadium in Kandy.
