COLOMBO: Shikhar Dhawan-led Indian team is leaving no stone unturned to prepare for the upcoming Sri Lanka series, which gets underway from July 18.
The tour comprising three ODIs and as many T20Is will start from July 18 after the series was rescheduled last week.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Monday shared a glimpse of how the players are training ahead of the series.
In the video, batsmen can be seen middling the ball while some others can be seen honing their skills on the field.
“Prep & More Prep Right, Batting, Bowling Fielding. #TeamIndia in the groove for the Sri Lanka series,” BCCI tweeted.

The three ODIs will be played on July 18, 20, and 23; and the three T20Is will be held on July 25, 27, and 29.
While Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been named vice-captain, Shikhar Dhawan will lead the India team which will be coached by former skipper Rahul Dravid.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka cricketers came out of mandatory isolation on Sunday evening as they all returned negative results in their latest RT-PCR tests.

As per a report on ESPNcricinfo, only the players will be allowed to come out of isolation as of now, while coaches and other members of the support staff will be in isolation until Wednesday.
The players are likely to begin training sessions by Tuesday.
Sri Lanka will likely be using the facilities at Khettarama stadium, while the India team will train at the Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC), stated the report.
