After whitewashing the Sri Lankan team by 3-0 in their own den in Tests, Virat Kohli & Co. are all set to take on their neighbours in the 5-match ODI series starting from August 20 in Dambulla.
The Indian captain will be looking forward to another series victory while the home side has a fair chance of making a comeback.

Throughout the series, the eyes will be on former Indian captain MS Dhoni whose presence in the team has become highly debatable. He has been under a huge pressure to perform with his bat for quite some time now. Also, chief selector, MSK Prasad has made it clear that he will be in the squad until his bat speaks.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli was seen practising his shots in the nets ahead of the first match.
Along with Kohli, both the openers of the team, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma were also trying out some of the shots at the nets.

Apart from the batting practice, the cricketers warmed up themselves by playing a football game during the practice session.
