This is international cricket.
And as the saying goes, 'If you want to make someone famous on debut, make them debut against India'. So apt.#INDvsSL— Malay (@FaaduTweets) February 9, 2016

The disappointment, When the top 8 batsmen, and actual batsmen only contribute 53 runs to the team total. #INDvsSL— Shrey Aggarwal (@aggarwal_shrey) February 9, 2016
Pitch curator right now must be finding place to hide. Ravi Shastri will be coming anytime soon to catch him. 😂😂#INDvsSL— Exactly (@akkiurate) February 9, 2016
