Virat Kohli eyeing Sourav Ganguly's record for most wins as captain

India vs Sri Lanka Virat Kohli On The Verge Of Breaking Sourav Ganguly's Record In Tests

"We are yet to see the wicket but the first target is to win the first Test and get momentum to win the series", Saha said after Indian team's first practice session ahead of the opening Test against Sri Lanka here from November 16. The all-rounder has been suffering from a string of injuries over the past 12 months and the Sri Lanka board are not willing to risk his workload. We will go one match at a time. Every series is very important.

"Every match is important and poses a different challenge, there's nothing like preparation. We know the conditions here".

Talking about the upcoming tour of South Africa, Saha expressed, "Every match is important for us". Right now we are focusing on this series.

"See South Africa will be completely different".

Tesco wins United Kingdom regulator's provisional approval for Booker takeover
The CMA's findings are surprising given its previous concerns over the deal, which was first announced in January. While 50% of Tesco investors must give the deal the green light, the threshold is 75% for Booker shareholders.

"Even for Sri Lanka this is a very important series and they are preparing really well". You have to take good care of yourself because in future we are going to play many matches. 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. He has not bowled in a Test match for a while. Everyone knows how to adapt to each format. Do that I think 5-6 maybe more than that. All the players are professionals. First Test is important to get the momentum.

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 just want to improve. I don't think he will bowl here. So, if an opportunity comes during the game, I am 100 percent sure of playing that one particular shot. "So I am just practising reverse sweeps, sweeps and paddle sweeps just as an option".

"I'm comfortable playing those shots".

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.

Sharif challenges accountability court's decision
The deputy prosecutor general also submitted a compliance report regarding the process of declaring them absconder. Judge Mohammad Bashir had issued non-bailable arrest warrants against them on Oct 2, which are still in effect.

"I'm batting really well".

India have a great record against Sri Lanka in Tests at home as the islanders are yet to win a game here. Four fifties also matter a lot for the team. "I just wanted to play as many balls as possible without being anxious about the scores". Training is very important as well as the recovery.

"The team management has decided that anyone can give a feedback". The Tour begins with the Test series, and the two squads were announced at the weekend Eden Gardens in Kolkata is the venue for the first match, which begins on Thursday.
