The three-match series between India and Sri Lanka is set to get underway at the historic Eden Gardens on tomorrow (16 November).
The Indian team were scheduled to have a practice session today morning followed by a press conference in which skipper Virat Kohli will address the media. The session could not take place due to rain but the Indian skipper spoke to the media persons on few things.
Kohli said that the 22-yard strip that will be used for the game looks like a sporting wicket with a lot of grass on it and the players are looking forward to playing on the wicket.
