India vs Sri Lanka 3rd Test

Team India is currently leading the 3-match Test series against Sri Lanka by 2-0 after they brutally defeated the hosts in the Colombo Test.

In the first match, Virat Kohli and Co. smashed the Lankan team by a massive 304 runs while in the second, the hosts lost the game by an innings and 53 runs. Though the Indian team is having a gala time in the neighboring island nation, the home team has disappointed the fans with their performance.

In such a situation where the unhappy fans leave the stadium in the middle of the game, the Cricket Sri Lanka officials are trying their best to anchor the audience. Perhaps that’s the reason behind something unusual that was witnessed on the grounds of Sri Lankan stadiums during the games.

According to several media reports, a Sri Lanka Cricket official has revealed that few women would come out to serve drinks during the breaks in the 3rd Test.

The reason behind this as quoted by a Sri Lankan leading daily is, “Ground must look beautiful.”

On the other hand, Bhairav Shanth, the Co-founder of the event management company taking care of the match in this series, said that they wanted to try ‘something new’. He said, “We wanted to do something new to the old tradition and this idea struck to us. The girls were serving drinks to the players in Galle Test also. They will be in action at the Kandy and all other limited over games also.”

The last match of the series is all set to be played in Pallekele from August 12. Post the Test series, the Indian team will also place a 5-match ODI series and one T20I game.
