A top-order collapse left the home team in tremendous trouble during the 1st session of the 1st Test between Sri Lanka and Australia at the Pallekale International Stadium lately.
With 5 wickets down the Sri Lankans are currently struggling to build a partnership at 84.
The openers failed to make a contribution as Dimuth Karunaratne continued to fail in the middle. The middle order made no impact as well. The dismissals of Chandimal and Mathews placed Sri Lanka in a vulnerable position of being bowled out quite cheaply.
However, with two good batsman on crease, Sri Lanka cannot afford to expose the tail in the 2nd session. Failure to build a partnership may turn out to be a disaster for Sri Lanka.
