India v Sri Lanka Ind & Ashwin Top India Bowler

Cricket - Test Match - 24 Nov 04:00

Had Kumar been playing I might have been a little reticent. But everything I have read says while its green on top, its nowhere near as much and its going to be 30 degrees + all 5 days and cloudless, no swing, and grass does not live very long in those temps.

I actually do not think India bowled that well once the extreme seam movement wore off (Kumar aside) They are also talking about playing another batsman or a batting allrounder, which will mean more overs for spinners.

Shami bowled 35 overs in the last game, the most he has bowled in almost 3 years at test level, its a fast turn around and he has his fitness issues.

Yadav got 3/104 in the most helpful conditions you will find.

Ashwin actually averages 3 wickets an innings at home in over 30 tests. He had 49 wickets in 6 SL tests before last week, there are mental scars there.

Jadeja's record at home in the 1st Innings is quite similar but his record against SL is nowhere near as imposing, taking his wickets at 30 each.

I actually think a better pitch makes Ashwin a better bet, as he is the better bowler, and turns it more out of the hand whereas Jadeja relies on accuracy and the pitch doing something.

I also think Ashwin will bowl more overs.

India are 1/3 for the match there is no weather about, SL despite all the advantages in game 1 still nearly lost it. A good wicket widens the gap in quality further.

Over reaction by the bookies this was 3.25 last time.
