India-Sri Lanka teams arrive in Kanpur

Kanpur: The Indian and Sri Lankan cricket teams arrived in Kanpur on Saturday for the second Test starting on Tuesday at the Green Park stadium.

Earlier in the first Test at Ahmedabad, Team India had faced a massive 334 runs deficit on first innings and was in danger of losing the match.

However, Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar and opener Gautam Gambhir helped the team score 412 runs and bat out the final day for a draw.

The Test also saw Tendulkar achieve another milestone by becoming the first batsman to complete 30,000 international runs.

The 36-year-old reached the milestone when he scored his 35th run in the second innings, where he went onto score his 43rd Test century.

Sri Lankan is here for a full series — three Tests, five ODIs and two Twenty20s.
