Mumbai : Sri Lanka can trouble India in the upcoming Test series only if they prepare favourable pitches for their bowlers, reckons veteran opener Gautam Gambhir.
Sri Lanka are facing a crisis of confidence after an embarrassing 2-3 series defeat against lower-ranked Zimbabwe in the ODIs. They managed to pull off a face-saving win in the one-off Test against the African nation ahead of India tour.
Gambhir says India will be too good for Sri Lanka in the tour, beginning with the first Test from July 26. “Obviously, India start as favourites because they are the world number 1 and Sri Lanka, the way they have played, they don’t have the bowling attack to trouble India.
The only way Sri Lanka can trouble India is to prepare wickets which work for their bowlers,” Gambhir told PTI during an interaction.
