Mithun lively with four strikes

Mithun lively with four strikes

Abhimanyu Mithun was the most successful amongst the Indian bowlers even as Sri Lanka dominated the third day’s proceedings in the first Test. Mithun took 4 Lankan wickets but went bleeding for more than 100 runs in his total spell of 28 overs. His middle spell was the most inspiring as he probed the Lankans outside the line.

The Test, in which already 112 overs have been lost, looks going the Lankan way, if not a draw, became lively in the morning and the last session. It was Ishant Sharma who was fierce some in the morning with swinging deliveries along with placement and pace. The battle between the bat and the ball during Ishant’s spell in the morning kept the viewers enthralled, taking the quality of cricket to new heights.

The last session was the battle of supremacy between two masters of the game – Sachin Tendulkar and Muttiah Muralitharan. In his ardent endeavour to reach 800 Test wickets, Murali, playing his last Test, tried every tricks in the trade to fool Sachin, which he eventually did, trapping the master infront for a paltry 8. India, replying to Lanka’s mammoth 520/8, was precariously placed at 140/3 at the end with Rahul Dravid, Sachin and Gautam Gambhir back in the pavilion. It was Virendra Sehwag who is staging a battle with an unbeaten 85 along with VVS Laxman.

Can India save the match or will Murali and Malinga bowl Lanka to go one up in the series?
