Eden pitch to be sporting, says Ganguly

Eden pitch to be sporting, says Ganguly”

Rahane is the vice-captain of the Indian Test team. In their first tour since 2009, Sri Lanka will play three Tests beginning November 16.

"He has been invited as he was the captain of the Indian team during the Hero Cup, which was the diamond jubilee celebration of the CAB", Joint Secretary Avishek Dalmiya told IANS on the sidelines of India vs Sri Lanka match preparations at the Eden on Monday.

About the team getting back into Test cricket: Team shape is very good. "Everyone knows how to adapt and adjust to all the formats, so I don't think there will be any problem". I don't think there will be any problem in adjusting.

In 2007, in a Test match at Ahemdabad, Lanka side had come close to winning a match against India, where they took a first innings lead of 300 runs. "Our focus is on winning the series against Sri Lanka now".

Kusal Mendis was named as the "Best Test Batsman", while the award for "Best Test Bowler" was awarded to Rangana Herath at the annual awards ceremony organized by Sri Lanka Cricket in Colombo. He was seen attempting several reverse sweeps at the Indian practice sessions. I am just practising sweep, reverse sweep and paddle sweep to have my options open.

"It is important to improve your game. when you are practising at the nets, it is important to evolve. Given the conditions, the series in South Africa will be totally different". They would later head in for a three-match ODI and T20I series against the Men in Blue.

About getting out on 40's in Ranji Trophy: I'm not too concerned about that. Their batting was stronger than now I would say. I got four 50s in a row in ODIs.

Asked how he likes to manage his own workload, Rahane said: "It is important to manage yourself as a professional athlete".

Coach Nic Pothas, who took over after Graham Ford left in June, said the India debacle had taught his team vital lessons.
