Pitch Report: Russel Arnold inspects the surface. States that it looks like a good surface but it is dry underneath. Mentions that spin will play a part as the game progresses.
Dimuth Karunaratne: We will bat first. The wicket will be good for batting in the first two days. We know it’s the home conditions and we have looked to adapt accordingly here and will look to give our best. We’ve got Sadeera Samarawickrama coming back into this set up and he will be back as a keeper after six years.
Andrew Balbirnie: We are going to work hard and take ten wickets and see then. We are very accustomed to it. It is slightly more humid than Bangladesh. Feel honoured to be a part of this setup, we had a great game in Bangladesh, although we lost. We are very fortunate to play Test cricket for Ireland. One change – Graham Hume goes out and George Dockrell comes in.
Sri Lanka: Dimuth Karunaratne(c), Nishan Madushka, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, Dhananjaya de Silva, Sadeera Samarawickrama(w), Prabath Jayasuriya, Ramesh Mendis, Asitha Fernando, Vishwa Fernando.
