The three day warm up match between India and Sri Lanka Board President XI match has ended in a draw.

Indian bowlers have made optimum use of the the match as Ishant Sharma (5), R Ashwin (5), Varun Aaron (3) and Amit Sharma (1) and Harbhajan Singh (2) a good match. But, they fail to take down hosts at the end of the third day and final day.

Talking about the batsman, Only Ajinkya Rahane showed his calibre to handle spinners of Sri Lanka. Cheteshwar Pujara, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawn also had a good game. But, captain Kohli is still out of form and Rohit Sharma has been yet to keep his promise.

22 year medium pacer took five wicket in India’s first innings, however he is not in the main squad. But, it is Vishaw Fernando’s two wickets – Rohit Sharma and Wriddhiman Saha which will keep India at bay going into the first match on August 12 at Galle.

The pitch was not tipycal Sri Lanka as it was assisting medium pacer. So, India will have to wary about spinning Galle pitch.
