India vs Sri Lanka 2017: Dinesh Chandimal & Co Touchdown in Kolkata

Kolkata: Dinesh Chandimal-led Sri Lankan squad arrived for their six-week tour of India, which starts here with the first of the three-Test series, beginning on November 16.

Sri Lanka will play three Tests, three ODIs and three T20 Internationals against Virat Kohli's India. The 15-member squad will hit the nets from tomorrow ahead of their two-day practice game against a third-string Board President's XI at the JU (2nd Campus ground), starting November 11.

"They will take rest today and hit the nets tomorrow afternoon," the local manager added.

The last time Sri Lanka played Test matches in India was seven years back in 2009, a three-match series that they lost 0-2. Earlier this year, India beat Sri Lanka 3-0 in Tests followed by clean sweep in ODIs and lone T20 International.

However the islanders had a better show against Pakistan winning away Test series in UAE 2-0. But in the ODI series that followed they were routed 0-5 by Pakistan.

Sri Lanka squad: Dinesh Chandimal (captain), Dimuth Karunaratne, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Lahiru Thirimanne (vice- captain), Niroshan Dickwella (wicketkeeper), Dilruwan Perera, Rangana Herath, Suranga Lakmal, Lahiru Gamage, Dhananjaya de Silva, Angelo Mathews, Lakshan Sandakan, Vishwa Fernando, Dasun Shanaka and Roshen Silva.
