Rain delayed commencement of the match
With a lot of expectations in mind the idea cup was expected to start with a bang but, it was rather disappointing since rain washed away the game on the first day of the first test match between India and Srilanka. After some really huge showers game started at around 2:00. Srilanka won the toss and elected to bat first ending the day with 75/2 with openers Upul Tharanga and Sangakara back in the pavilion. Lets hope that these remaining four days will have no interruption by rain. I am eager to see how these senior guns go after Mendis who has a unique action.
