India last toured to Sri Lanka in 2001 where they lost to the series by 2-1 with a close contest. That time their key players Sachin Tendulkar and Anil Kumble were injured. Now, in this 16-member Test squad both have been included. Indian batting great Sachin Tendulkar needs only 172 runs to break the record of West Indian Brian Lara’s world record of 11,953 Test runs. So, cricket beloved fans are excited to see this series with much curiosity and passion. The sad news is that because of the short version of Cricket game Test series has lost its popularity. People are now more focusing on limited over game and T20 match. Because of IPL and rebel ICL T20 has become money machine.
