Australia tour of Sri Lanka 2016, Live streaming: Watch live telecast of 1st Test between Sri Lanka and Australia at Pallekele on Ten Sports

From the Caribbean and England, the focus of Test purists moves back to the Indian subcontinent as the first Test between Australia and Sri Lanka goes underway on Tuesday, July 26. The first Test of the three-match series will be played at Pallekele.

The game is expected to be dominated by spin, since the sub-continental conditions assist spin bowling. However, with a pace attack as good as Australia s one should not be surprised if the likes of Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlwood run away with the honours.

Sri Lanka will mostly rely on the seniors like Angelo Mathews, Rangana Herath and Dinesh Chandimal. They do have a mystery weapon to unleash on the visitors in the form of debutant Lakshan Sandakan, who is a Chinaman bowler.

Mathews has won the toss and elected to bat first. Both the teams are playing in with two spinners, which does not surprise. Australia have fielded Nathan Lyon and Steve O Keefe. Catch the live streaming of the match on Ten Sports.
