So far so good for Virat Kohli and Co. Team India undertook a mission to win all their home matches and have almost achieved that seemingly impossible task.
India’s previous home assignment against New Zealand in the ODIs and T20Is ended on a satisfying note. This time they will take on Sri Lanka in another home series.
India are scheduled to play Sri Lanka for three Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is. The first Test is scheduled to be held at Eden Gardens, Kolkata on November 16 onwards.
According to the team manager, Ravi Ashwin, Rohit Sharma, Rahane and coach Ravi Shastri have arrived at team’s hotel in Kolkata. Kohli will arrive Monday morning.
“India skipper Virat Kohli will arrive tomorrow morning, while six other team members including Ravichandran Ashwin, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane are slated to arrive tonight. Coach Ravi Shastri will also arrive tonight,” team manager told PTI.
