Srilanka very confident in winning the series against India

Srilanka has already won the first test match which was played against India couple of days back. Muttiah Muralidaran took his 800th wicket in test cricket to be a new world record. This was his last international test cricket match of his career. Muttiah Muralidaran and Lasith Malinga took 15 wickets in the last test match which helped the Srilankans to defeat the Indians very easily. Srilanka lost only 8 wickets in the entire test match where as Indians lost all 10 wickets in both the innings. This was not new for India to loose the first match. It's always happenings, Indians are known to give a poor start in the series.

After the first match victory, Srilankan Captain Kumar Sangakkara is very confident in winning the series. Muttiah Muralidaran will not be playing hence, the key bowler has been ruled out. Even Lasith Malinga will not be playing the second test match due to his knee injury. So there is a double blow for Srilanka, even then Sangakkara is very confident of clinching the series. Ajantha Mendis will be playing instead of Muttiah Muralidaran and Dilhara Fernando will be playing instead of Lasith Malinga.

India has already lost the first match and something must be going inside the Indian skippers mind by now as the key bowlers are not playing in the next test match. Now India has to win the remaining 2 matches in order to win the series or at least win a match and draw a match to draw the series. But, after looking at the batting and bowling performance, i don't have a single percent hope that they will win the series. Only hope for India and me will be Sachin Tendulkar and the wall Rahul Dravid. Second test match will be starting from Monday. Let's wait n watch
