India vs Sri Lanka LIVE Streaming 1st Test Kolkata: As frustrating as it may be, the entire Eden Gardens is covered right now, making it look like a skating rink. The toss has been delayed and we might have to wait long before the match actually starts. India would like to continue its ruthless streak while Sri Lanka would want to forget the annihilation suffered at home and chase what has been an improbable dream of winning a Test in India when the two sides clash for the 1st Test of a three-match series. India currently sits at the helm of Test rankings and would like to extend its stay by repeating what it did in Sri Lanka – whitewashing the Islanders. They are unbeaten at home in a Test series since 2012 and will be playing this series with the regular Test squad except for Hardik Pandya who has been rested for the first two Tests. On the other hand, Sri Lanka has never won a Test match in India. However, the Islanders are coming for the tour after whitewashing Pakistan 2-0 in UAE which might act as a catalyst to their confidence. The inexperienced Dinesh Chandimal will lead the Sri Lanka side and so will bank heavily on Angelo Mathews and left-arm spinner Rangana Herath – the two senior members who were part of the side which travelled India in 2009. They have the promising chinaman Lakshan Sandakan who had a five-wicket haul against India in the Pallekele Test but in Indian conditions, it remains to be seen whether they will opt for the inexperienced spinner ahead of offspinner Dilruwan Perera.
