New Delhi: Playing Test cricket is often considered the ultimate challenge in the gentleman’s game. The Indian players were on Tuesday ‘kit’ting up ahead of the first Test starting at the Galle International Stadium on Wednesday and India all-rounder Hardik Pandya expressed his joy after wearing the whites on Tuesday.

Taking to Twitter, Pandya posted a photo in whites which read: “What better to live moments which i often fantasized as a growing kid!
The Paramount to represent India in whites. #livingthedream #SLvIND.”

Pandya has been in a good zone after some praiseworthy performances for the team. In fact, he has improved by leaps and bounds and was picked in the team for the upcoming Test series against Sri Lanka as Virat Kohli looks at him as the vital bowling all-rounder.

While he has been a regular in the team in recent times and has put in crucial performances with both bat and ball, the team missed his services in the lone T20I they played in the West Indies. Not just his lower-order hitting prowess, but also his skills with the ball was missed as India lost the game.
