After achieving success in the two limited-overs series against New Zealand, the Indian cricket team are set to host Sri Lanka for a three-match Test series which begins on November 16 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Having missed out on all the action in the limited-overs series, the Test specialists namely Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Umesh Yadav, Murali Vijay, and Wriddhiman Saha are set to make a comeback to the side. we take a look at India's predicted playing XI for the first Test against the Lankans. Virat Kohli led team India now shift their focus to the longest format of the game after they defeated the blackcaps in T20I. Earlier this year when the Indian team visited the Sri Lankan soil they dominated them in all the formats of the game and since then they have beaten the likes of Australia and New Zealand. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, isn’t looking so good. They just had a devastating tour in UAE against Pakistan even after registering a test series win against them. The team did defeat Pakistan in both the test matches but lost all ODIs and T20Is after that. They are looking forward for a change of fortunes with their tour of India and win back the respect.
