Sri Lanka call up Chameera, Gamage for third Test against India

They know that there will be a phase where those who are now playing might not be in the best form, so then they will get their chance. His batting had taken a dip under Dhoni, but with Kohli as captain, he has become worlds number one bowler and all rounder.

Pallekele is surrounded by lush rolling hills which make for a picturesque background, and is a scenic 11 kilometre drive from Kandy in Sri Lanka's Hill Country.

India did not practice on Friday, but Kohli said they are confident of taking the field on Saturday and are in a "good zone".

He added that the suspension can be a good thing going forward, as it will enable players to be more aware of themselves, which will, in turn, be a welcome addition for improving their game.

"Lot of things happen in the heat of the moment you end up doing".

Down in the dumps after morale-shattering defeats, their plans to gain some momentum by working things out in the nets were washed away by heavy downpour for the last two days. So I think the intent counts nowadays and that's something that players need to keep in mind.

"We don't want to give excuses. We can not get the combination right", said Chandimal.

Kohli rejected suggestions that this could demoralise players, who have not yet got a chance to play. But every time players of my team are getting injured. "I don't know where this came from... if you don't want me to play, then tell me..." So in professional sport they understand this aspect. They are intelligent so you don't get too many of such questions. But in this article, we will focus on two new age captains of the Indian cricket team: Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli. "We feel absolutely comfortable going into the Test match even though we didn't practice today". Also, what you need to understand in places like Sri Lanka, it is very hot and humid.

"Sometimes I don't know why people make such comments".

The lack of challenges could be because of the big gulf between the two teams, but it could also leave India feeling that all their boxes are ticked.

On the pitch, which he has not yet seen, Kohli said it wasn't much of a concern.

He made his debut in May this year when Australia toured India for a four-match Test series.
