Back in the side, fit-again Sri Lank captain Dinesh Chandimal hopes to revive his team's fledgling fortunes in the second Test with a match-winning effort, similar to the one he produced against India two years ago.

It was his audacious hundred against India at Galle in 2015 that had turned the tide for his team. He repeated that performance against Australia as well, and will look to inspire his troops once again after a heavy loss in the first Test.

"It was a really good knock. After that knock we won that game. When you are playing with a really good team like India, you have to take risks when you are batting or bowling.
