Sri Lanka looking for first test win in India

Nov 15, 2017 | Cricketingnepal |

Host India will take against Sri Lanka in the first Test match of 3-match Test series at Eden Garden in Kolkata.


This is the first in 8-years Sri Lanka is in the tour of India to play a test match series. Last time Sri Lanka played against India in test in India was on 16th November 2009.


Sri Lanka has been struggling in recent time in all forms of cricket. After retirement from Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene, Sri Lanka seems to have gaps in their team and they are still looking to get their problem solved.


Sri Lanka has played 17 test matches in India and they are still waiting for a win against the host. In the last five test matches between these two teams, India has won all those five matches and it was in Sri Lanka. So India is on top in this series to win.
