Sri Lanka's hands in India win
COLOMBO, Aug 9: Sri Lanka had hands in India's victory in the second Test.

Last week, one of the twins of Sri Lankan batting coach Hashan Tillakaratne bowled during Indian team's net sessions before the commencement of the Test at the Sinhalese Sports Cricket ground.

"I was bowling to the Sri lankan team in the morning session and I felt interested to stay back and have a bowl at the Indian team as well", Ravindu, speaking exclusively to this Reporter said.

"My dad always said if I wasn't too tired that I should go and bowl to the Indian team. I was very excited about it as I was in good rhythm the whole week and thought I could make a good impression", he said.

Ravindu and Dubindu, both twins born at one-minute interval (on 6th September 1996) and the third son (Rajindu) play cricket in Sri Lanka. The parents have given Sachin as middle name to the twins. (Hashan's wife Apsari is/was Sachin Tendulkar's fan)

"That particular day only Cheteshwar Pujara and KL Rahul were present and I had a good opportunity to bowl to them. I guess I bowled well to them. The two were immensely classy and specially Pujara was very wristy and wasn't easy to deceive", he added.

Chinaman bowler :"I am a bowling all-rounder and also bowls left-arm Chinaman", he added.

"As soon as the training session began I asked one of the coaches if Kuleep Yadav (Yadav too bowls Chinaman) was present. Unfortunately he wasn't. I have kept in touch with him over Instagram sometime back".

"Unfortunately I didn't interact with Virat Kohli, but looking forward to meeting and bowling to him and the team (when they return for the limited over matches".

India playing good :No doubt that the Indian team is playing outstanding cricket. We have to acknowledge that. I would like to wish them well for the rest of the series", Ravindu signed off.
