India will play their best combination in the one-day international series against Sri Lanka, according to selection panel chief Dilip Vengsarkar.

He confirmed that Virender Sehwag would have to wait some more time before getting a look in. "Sehwag will have to wait for his chance. We are also looking at some more players."
