India look for rousing start at Eden vs Sri Lanka
Starting Thursday at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens, Indian cricket team plays Sri Lanka cricket for the second full series this year. Ranked No. 1 in the world in ICC rankings, India will use this series to prepare for the long series in South Africa starting January first week in Cape Town. The Lankans, whose current form has been dismal to say the least, will start as the underdogs but India must guard against an attack that has the dangerous Rangana Herath.
