Dashing batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Thursday said the upcoming tri-series in Sri Lanka would be a challenging one but expressed confidence of a good show by Team India.
"The tour will be tough and challenging, but we are confident of doing well in Sri Lanka," Dhoni told reporters at the airport here on his return home after the gruelling two-month tour of West Indies.
The swashbuckling cricketer said the experience gained on the successful West Indies tour should come handy during the World Cup, scheduled to be held in the Caribbeans next year.
About India's Test series win in West Indies, Dhoni said "it was a great feeling to win the Test series there after 35 long years. The achievement was a team effort."
Dhoni, who scored 29 and 20 runs in the third and final Test, would be spending time with his family at home for a few days.
