Ravindra Jadeja will have a chance to reclaim the top spots among bowlers and all-rounders in the ICC rankings when India square up against Sri Lanka in the three-match Test series starting at the Eden Gardens here on Thursday.
Dinesh Chandimal says India are in the form of their life, but Sri Lanka will try to bag their first-ever victory on the India soil to fulfil their dream. We all know how to adjust in different formats. I don't think there will be any trouble.
Samaraweera spoke to each of them individually and they later headed for a shadow practice session.
Rahane was not willing to underestimate Sri Lanka, which starts the series as the underdog. "We are not taking Sri Lanka lightly". For us each and every series, every match is important. "Our focus is on winning the series against Sri Lanka now". We just want to play our game instead of thinking about their strategies.

Details are emerging on both the officer-involved shooting and a series of arrests at the Charlton Memorial Hospital. There were several cars in the area including a green hatchback that had smoke coming out of it.
At the nets, Rahane was seen playing some unorthodox shots like the reverse sweep. I don't think he will bowl here.
"It is important to improve your game. when you are practising at the nets, it is important to evolve".
"South Africa will be completely different". "The opening Test of the series is always important. Some of them are all-time greats of the sport and it was a tough task for us", Muralitharan recalled. Even in the Ranji Trophy, was dismissed twice in the 40s recently. This will be a tough series and the characters of our boys will be tested", Muralitharan said in an interview with Cricbuzz."When I played against India, they had the world's best batting line-up. Yes I got out on 49 and 45 in the Ranji Trophy but for me, it was important to play as many balls as possible and practice for the Test runs.
In recent times, managing workload has become a talking point in Indian cricket. The team management is taking care of all these aspects. "So, recovery will be very crucial for us".
