The India vs Sri Lanka test series is all set to kick off. The teams will play three test matches in the 2015 series and there is a lot at stake. It will be a comparatively new Indian side for the series and there are certain players that deserve some special attention.
Amit Mishra is in the test team after a long break and all eyes will be on him. He last played a test match in 2011 and there were a lot of eyebrows raised when he was picked for the team. Mishra will have to silence the critics with his performance which makes him worthy of being watched.
Virat Kohli has been pretty successful against Sri Lanka when it comes to One Day International Cricket, but the test team captain will now have to prove his worth in a test match setting. He will carry the pressure of being captain as well throughout the test matches, and Kohli has the ability to be the difference between the two sides.
The lanky pacer would be crucial against Kumar Sangakkara. Sangakkara is still one of the best batsmen that Sri Lanka has at their disposal and Ishant has already fired shots at him.
“He is playing for his country and I am playing for my country. We played together only in the IPL and this is international match. So I will not think that he is playing his last game, I will go hard at him,” Sharma said after a brilliant performance against the President’s eleven.
Rohit Sharma is going to be a trending topic at one point or the other during the series. His consistency, his place in the number three position and a lot more will be discussed, making Rohit a must watch player for the fans.
