India vs Sri Lanka 3rd Test Highlights Day 1



Watch cricket highlights from the 1st day of the 3rd test cricket match - Sri Lanka vs India - in this video. India through Sehwag and Gautham Gambhir once again raced to 50 runs in less than 7 overs before debutante Dammika Prasad got Sehwag - the first of his 3 top order wickets (Dravid and Tendulkar being the other two). Gambhir (72) played some breathtaking cricket - look out for some of his drives in this video - along with Sourav Ganguly (35). VVS Laxman was snapped up by Ajantha Mendis for the 5th consecutive time while a sombre Zaheer Khan (after his demotion in the last test) in the company of Ishanth Sharma added 51 runs for the last wicket. Their partnership has already set the tongues a-wagging about the Fab Four and if India loses this test match, one of them will probably face the axe (for good) unless Anil Kumble has his way. Already the Hindi news channel brigade that revel in these situations have started frothing about the Four. I'm not sure I can handle the pressure watching them walk out in the 2nd innings. Wonder what's gonna happen. So India, bowled out for 249 while Sri Lanka lost Warnapura to Ishanth Sharma at the end of Day 1. In the meantime, Kevin Pietersen was carving out a stunning 100 - watch that here.
