India vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test Predictions and Preview Who Will Win 20th Aug 2015
India vs Sri Lanka 2nd test will start from August 20th at Colombo. Virat Kohli and his boys want to change things in the 2nd game. It is still hard to believe that India lost the first test after such a great start. Many people think that it is the inexperienced captaincy of Virat Kohli was the main reason behind this loss. Many commentators suggested that there was no need to play with 5 bowlers, but Kohli did not listen to anyone and did exactly what he wanted to do. He was also receiving a lot of criticism for unable to change the bowlers at the right time.
Indian selectors are still in the process of finding a new test team after the retirement of M S Dhoni and some other senior players. They are still unable to find the right balance in the team, it seems they are always experimenting with some players and hoping for the best. Just couple of days ago it was announced that they are bringing in Stuart Binny for the 2nd test. Now Binny first came to limelight after he was selected ahead of Yuvraj Singh in the world Cup 2015 team. Still today Stuart Binny was unable to show why the selectors are showing so much faith in him. So far he is a big failure in both forms of the game. No one in the Indian team is injured and yet the selectors included a flop player in the squad. It is about time Stuart Binny performs and shows the world that he is capable of playing international cricket. Otherwise, people will say that it is because of his father that he is getting a lot of chances again and again. We wonder how Captain Virat Kohli is taking this force inclusion.
Anyway, chances are Stuart Binny will not play in the India vs Sri Lanka 2nd test, as no Indian bowlers really performed that badly in the first game. Sri Lanka was out for 183 in the first innings at their home ground, this happened only because the bowlers were able to perform according to their potential. Ravichandran Ashwin was especially outstanding and he took six crucial Sri Lankan wickets. Indian batsmen too were outstanding in the first innings as both Kohli and Dhawan scored centuries. So what was the need for calling an all-rounder like Stuart Binny for the 2nd test? It is true that Indian team was unable to play well at the 2nd innings, but that does not mean this team needed a change. Sri Lankan team played better than the Indian team in the 2nd innings and that’s why India lost the game. This is high time Indian selectors show more confidence in the players they have chosen for a series.
Sri Lankan on the other hand is high on confidence after their unexpected win in the first test. Sri Lankan skipper Angelo Mathews is really happy with the effort his team members put in the first test. He is hoping for a repeat performance like this in the 2nd test. He wants to win the series in the next game, in that case last test match will have absolutely no value.
The big question now is can Indian team make a comeback in the India vs Sri Lanka 2nd test? India is a cricket crazy nation and fans want their team to win every game. Kohli who was a hero last year is facing a tough time this year as India has lost couple of matches under his captaincy. Indian team is the most unpredictable side in the world, so who knows we will get to see a better team in the 2nd test.
