India will not take Sri Lanka lightly, insists Ajinkya Rahane

Other India batsmen inside the top-10 include Lokesh Rahul (eighth) and vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane (ninth), while batsmen outside the top-20 are Shikhar Dhawan (30th), Murali Vijay (36th) and wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha (47th). India also whitewashed Sri Lanka in the following ODI and T20 series but Rahane insisted that they are not taking the visitors lightly.

"We did really well against Pakistan and the boys are in a good shape", said Chandimal. I don't think there will be any trouble.

"Yesterday we had a good practice session so it won't be hard to adjust". We will have practice sessions today and tomorrow so, the preparations are going pretty well.

"This series is completely different as compared to what we played in Sri Lanka".

The Indian team faced short balls, played reverse sweeps against spinners in the training session on Monday and Rahane said this part of their constant evolution. I don't think he will bowl here. "Yes, I have been practising the reverse and the paddle sweep in the nets".

"I am comfortable. For me, it's important to give my best in the nets. Given the conditions, the series in South Africa will be totally different". In the last 13 years only two teams have won a series in India. "We were very close, but that's how things happen in Test cricket", Muralitharan went onto add.

Veteran Rangana Herath will lead Sri Lanka's spin attack, supported by Dilruwan Perera and left-arm unorthodox Lakshan Sandakan. So we won't be taking them lightly. Even in the Ranji Trophy, was dismissed twice in the 40s recently. "I feel we are focussed on this series right now. the first game in Kolkata", he said. The 28-year-old, who has played 32 Tests to date in which he has taken 155 wickets and scored 1136 runs, now sits second in both the categories.

About managing workload: It is important to manage yourself as professional athlete.

About the Eden Gardens wicket: We will have to wait for the match to get started.
