India motivated to stay No. 1 at Sri Lanka's expense

Protecting their No. 1 test cricket ranking will be enough motivation for the players against Sri Lanka in the upcoming three-match series, India coach Ravi Shastri said Thursday. Shastri said they are wary of Sri Lanka's record at home, and will not be complacent — even though Sri Lanka has fallen

the biggest threat to Sri Lanka from India is ashwin and kuldeep yadav

Ashwin normally don't like when batsmen playing switch hit that's why Glenn Maxwell and chandimal have successful record against him.

way to counter ashwin
● if he bowl with new ball then better be aware of the floater ball which will like a seam up delivery and it will swing a bit come with the arm
●when he bowl with older ball that's where all his trick comes to play.he bowl according to your weakness. he have many variety of delivery.
● the way to counter ashwin attack him and Play intelligently don't jump out of the crease before the bowl is release.the best way to counter ashwin is switch hit he and jadeja both don't like that because it force them to change their line and length.he might say he have a mystery delivery to switch hit but he know he can't do much.
● I will have spin attacking batsman at no.4 and no.6 counter ashwin and kuldeep yadav and jadeja

counter kuldeep yadav
● to counter kuldeep yadav you need to be a good player of wrist spin unfortunately our batting line-up is clueless against wrist spin. the best way to play wrist spin use your wrist and grind it and hit the bat hard.wrist spinners turn the ball mile but no need to fear if you put pressure on wrist spinner you will get lot of bad deliveries from them.
● inside out drive will come handy if he or ashwin try to turn the ball away. another way to counter kuldeep yadav is to use strong grounded sweep shot not lofted sweep shot.

to counter jadeja
● jadeja another threat espicially for right handed batsman. he bowl quicker and he don't give you breathing space.
●the best way to counter him
○reverse sweep
○inside out drive(play only if you can executed well)
○switch hit

If we prepared green wickets then better be aware of Indian fast bowling line up.

bhuwenswar Kumar
●he can swing the ball both way espicially with the new ball. and he bowl accurate good line and length and he will be a major threat.

countering bhuwenswar Kumar
●shuffle across the crease upset his line and length.force him to bowl short ball by coming down the wicket.beware of outside the offstump line he will bring the ball back in and take the bowl away in that same line generally he will have three slips for catching position.

countering ishant Sharma
● he use his height well to bowl and he have good bouncer only a good hooker or puller can deal with his bouncers. he have a great record against us.he ball with a wobble seam most of the time.try to put much pressure as you can by attacking him but beware because he is tall he can get the ball into uncomfortable height and force you to play a false or miscues shot.

countering Yadav and shami
● both of them bowl above 145 kph plus and both of them can reverse swing the older ball.they will be major threat. to counter them you need to be a good timer and use their pace well and effectively to accumulate runs.

from Indian batting line-up virat kohli and ajinkya rahane and rohit Sharma will be the biggest threat.

virat kohli
he is the biggest threat.the only way to counter him by balling that fifth to sixth stump line.he know no matter what he do he will get caught to that line because that comes from his batting technical deficiency. that technic might allow him to scores 1000 plus runs at the same time it's his major weakness, he need to completely revamp his technique in order to overcome that issue.bowling anything legside to him or other Indian batsman is a free hit. So the line to be outside the offstump but length need to be vary.

ajinkya rahane
●under the radar and under the shadow of virat kohli not much attention toward him but he is a real threat. he is a real test specialist along with pujara. for him need to play different tactics. a good use of a short ball might comes handy or seam up indipper. but he is India's best player of fast bowling.

rohit Sharma
● another major threat. if he score runs he will score big. the ball comes back in might do the trick.

shikar dhawan
● he is a major threat he is an attacking batsman. try to bowl out the offstump line if you can generate bit of extra bounce from the wicket thAt will be helpful too.
