Sri Lanka’s bad luck is not leaving them after some seniors retirements. Their England tour was too bad now they are playing in their home ground but still, they are unable to do something good in cricket. 117 runs in the first innings at home ground are too low, according to weather conditions and pitch report, Sri Lanka had the advantage to bowl first.
Because they can predict pitch behavior better than all other countries may be their bad decision gave them some good advises. Now if they bowl so good in the next days they still have a chance to secure the first test because two early big wickets they already have taken.
Toss: Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to bat first
