Rumesh Ratnayake reveals Angelo Mathews unlikely to bowl in Tests against India

Virat Kohli

Ahead of the Test series against Sri Lanka, Saha reveals which bowler he finds the most hard to keep wickets against.

The Indian team support staff was seen giving throwdowns of short pitch deliveries as the likes of Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul and skipper Kohli warmed up. Do that I think 5-6 maybe more than that.

"South Africa will be completely different". We want to win each and every match and each and every series.

"Everyone knows how to adapt and adjust to all the formats".

"For us each and every match and series is important before going to South Africa".

"Yesterday we had a good practice session so it won't be hard to adjust". We are just focusing on this series right now and the first game in Kolkata. Rahane though said the team is not focussing entirely on the Proteas challenge just yet and if they want to remain the best side in the longest format of the game, they have to take every series seriously.

Rachel, Mike from Suits may not return for eighth season
Markle, meanwhile, has been rumored to leave the series since it was revealed that she's dating Prince Harry in 2016. Gina Torres, who left as a series regular after Season 6, has made guest appearances in the current season.

While the Indian left-right handed duo mainly played in the Vs with occasional reverse sweep, middle-order batsman Rahane's stint at the nets was peppered with the unorthodox shot to the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav, hinting their strategy against Rangana Herath and Lakshan Sandakan. I think if I improve one shot in the nets, I will be better off in the game. "However the wicket be, our target will be to win the first Test and get momentum to win the series", Saha said. We don't want to take them lightly.

The Saurashtra duo of Cheteshwar Pujara and Ravindra Jadeja - who played in the last round Ranji Trophy match against Gujarat that ended on Sunday - opted to rest on Monday. For me it's important to give 100 per cent at the nets. For me I have been batting very well. "I have four 50s in a row", he said referring to his knocks against Australia in the ODI series in September-October.

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

"Apart from training it's very important to recover". The team management taking care of all these aspects. "So, recovery will be very crucial for us".

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

In the domestic circuit, the Mumbai batsman registered two ducks in the second and first innings against Odisha and Baroda respectively but also notched up 49 and 45 in the other two innings of the same matches. "I am sure preparation will be good before the first Test".
