Followed by winning Test series against Pakistan 2-0 in UAE, Sri Lankan cricket team is now touring India for the upcoming Test series. Former India captain Sourav Ganguly, and the "Prince of Kolkata", today inspected the pitch that will play host to the first India-Sri Lanka Test and mentioned that the track will produce a good contest. First Test match is important for the series in terms of momentum. The function is set to be attended by members of both Indian and Sri Lankan team members. The sequence of wins started in Sri Lanka (2-1) in 2015.
Left-arm spinner Rangana Herath, 39, is Sri Lanka's highest-ranked bowler in fifth place.
About focus on the upcoming tour of South Africa: South Africa will be completely different. "I am sure we will be well prepared before the match", Rahane said at a press conference in Kolkata, the venue for the first Test, starting from November 16.
"He has been invited as he was the captain of the Indian team during the Hero Cup, which was the diamond jubilee celebration of the CAB", Joint Secretary Avishek Dalmiya told IANS on the sidelines of India vs Sri Lanka match preparations at the Eden on Monday. I always think that if I improve on one shot at the nets, I will be better off in the game.
While Rahane was in prolific form during the ODI series against Australia, notching up four half-centuries in a row, he picked up low scores in the two Ranji Trophy matches he played before joining the Indian Test squad. "Given the conditions, the series in South Africa will be totally different". "We will find out", he said. I am just practising sweep, reverse sweep and paddle sweep to have my options open. And when all-rounder Hardik Pandya was pulled out of the Test series to negate any possibility of a major injury concern, the issue once again gained attention. Training is very important as well as the recovery.
