Two teams at two extreme ends of the spectrum clash in the final Test of the Sri Lanka-India series at the picturesque Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, starting Saturday (August 12). In fact, arguably the only thing international about the series so far has been the grounds, and the beautiful Pallekele Stadium presents a near-perfect end to the series, reports cricbuzz.
If only the same could be said about the cricket, too. Sri Lanka have been a side that has struggled to compete over the course of the last two Tests, and their opponents, India, have already run away with the series. On a batting beauty at Galle, India thumped them by 304 runs, while on a rank-turner at the SSC in Colombo was another massive innings win for Virat Kohli's side. The hosts have struggled with a spate of injuries to key players, and have been further dented by the unavailability of Rangana Herath and Nuwan Pradeep for the third Test.
