Sri lanka knows well about the ground as they had played here twice,they said that pitch was harder in their previous game as its now,so they can have adavntage here.Dhoni problem is mostly with the openeing pair,One option could be to push Robin Uthappa, who played superbly on Sunday against Australia, ahead of Sehwag.

Another problem is their tight schedule,Players like Dhoni and Ishant Sharma have been playing non-stop from the start of the Test series. "It's tough on guys like Ishant and Gautam, but we have some time to recover and we need them," was Dhoni's response to whether a 36-hour break was enough for the team to bounce back after yesterday's game against Australia.
