After a hard-fought ODI and T20 series win against New Zealand at home, Team India will now face Sri Lanka for three Tests, three ODIs, and three Twenty20s.
The series will start at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata on 16 Nov, Thursday as Virat Kohli’s men lock horns with Dinesh Chandimal and in the first Test.
The last time, India gone Sri Lanka, and these two teams faced each other, and fortunately India win all the series.
Virat Kohli and co inflicted a whitewash on the Lankan lions in all the three formats, ending the tour with a scoreline of 9-0. Chandimal and co will look to put behind the heavy loss against India and start the tour with a win. While the Lankan side is having a miserable time recently; especially in the limited-overs, they will seek inspiration from their recent Test series outings against Pakistan, where they tamed the Sarfraz Ahmed-led unit in the United Arab Emirates and won the two-match series 2-0.
However, that won’t be an easy task for Sri Lanka who are yet to win a single Test on the Indian soil.
Chandimal, the captian of Lanka, highlighted this fact, ahead of the first Test, saying, "We have never won a Test in India, it's a dream for everyone. This is a first game we are playing in Kolkata. It's always a pleasure playing in front of Kolkata spectators. We need to start well as a team and looking forward."
The second test will be held on 24-28 at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Nagpur
