A noisy crowd was silenced as Shikhar Dhawan was adjudged leg before off Angelo Mathews via DRS. If the star opener’s dismissal silenced the home fans, what followed left them in shock. A team of talented players, eyeing to become world beaters, crumbled in conditions aiding swing with bounce on offer. (Read | Dharamsala ODI loss versus Sri Lanka an eye-opener, says skipper Rohit Sharma) In the space of 27 runs, India lost six more wickets. Rohit Sharma, Dinesh Karthik, Manish Pandey, debutant Shreyas Iyer, Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were flummoxed as Sri Lanka bowlers breathed fire in seaming conditions. Experimentation group Karthik, Pandey, Iyer and Pandya belong to the ‘experimentation group’ in the Indian cricket team. They are still on trial as India zero...
