Second Test day one: The story so far

The opening act of day one of the second Test in Colombo against Sri Lanka was like a rewind to the first day of the Galle Test. The toothless Indian bowling attack was hammered to all parts of the ground once again. Captain Kumar Sangakkara and opener Paranavitana slammed centuries. Dilshan powered to a fifty and the Indian bowlers on an unresponsive pitch looked more like lambs lining up for slaughter.

Lackluster India

Second Test day one: The story so far

Indian bowling attack looked as harmless as a cow. And it's probably the reason why the Lankans milked them so easily. Ishant Sharma came under the scanner once again, after he was mauled by the Lankan openers. Abhimanyu Mithun sent second delivery down for four byes and did not look threatening at all. Harbhajan Singh, India's most experienced bowler, failed to get a wicket on the opening day of the Test match. Running out of ideas, captain Dhoni threw the ball to Virender Sehwag. But the Lankans were in no mood to relent, as they ended the day with a huge score.
