Aggression is all fine, but it should reflect in the deliveries sent down and not merely by gesturing or posturing.
Rightly, Sreesanth concentrated on line and length and not so much on pace. He is capable of bowling far quicker than he did in Kanpur, but as he is making a comeback, he was sensible in his priorities.
However, before Sreesanth could deliver the body blows to Sri Lanka, it was Sehwag who set the pace and momentum on the first day with the century.
In fact, the Indians scored at an incredible pace of over four runs per over with Gambhir and Dravid joining in.
I thought that the Sri Lankans bowled rather poorly on Day 1 before tightening up the following day.
The absence of Prasad, who wrecked the Indian innings in the drawn first Test, surely hurt Sri Lanka and perhaps, one can question their choice of three spinners at the expense of a batsman.
It was probably a move influenced by the belief that the pitch would turn in the latter part of the match.
