Herath to miss third Test against India

Cricket News: India beats Sri Lanka again

His continuous shouting disturbed Tucker's concentration and the on-field umpire gestured to the highly charged fan to keep quiet by keeping a finger on his lips.

While doing so, the Team India captain came up with a quirky name - "Sword Master", referring to the all-rounder's famous sword brandishing celebration style. This early wicket was followed by a terrific partnership between Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis which gave the Sri Lankans some hope. Chairman of selectors MSK Prasad is now in Pallekele for the third Test and is expected to take a call after discussions with coach Ravi Shastri and captain Virat Kohli.

Jadeja took 7 wickets in the second Test at Colombo which included a five-wicket haul in the second innings.

Cheteshwar Pujara is one of the best Test batsmen in the side and his hunger and mental strength has helped him to evolve massively as a cricketer, India skipper Virat Kohli said here today.

However, it was a bitter-sweet experience for Jadeja, who was banned for the third and final Test in Pallekele for breaching the ICC's Code of Conduct.

The Indian spinner threw the ball back at batsman Dimuth Karunaratne in what umpires deemed to be a risky manner.

"If one looks at how the selectors have gone about their job, the four premier Test spinners during home series were Ravichandran Ashwin, Jadeja, Jayant and Kuldeep".

The country's cricket board said the players met with top officials and coaches on Monday at a strategic session aimed at recouping and regrouping ahead of the Pallekele Test. This will be Pakistan's second day and night Test in Dubai as previous year also they had played against the West Indies and won the encounter. Pakistan Cricket Board official has stated that team Sri Lanka are scheduled to tour India after the series, and this is why this match will be scheduled in late September. They also won their 8 series in a row under Virat Kohli's captaincy.
