The Citizen (Gauteng) - - SPORT -

Kolkata – Cap­tain Di­nesh Chandi­mal is dream­ing of Sri Lanka mak­ing his­tory by win­ning a Test in In­dia – de­spite be­ing huge un­der­dogs against the world’s topranked side when the se­ries be­gins in Kolkata to­mor­row.

Sri Lanka lost all nine matches – three Tests, five one-day in­ter­na­tion­als and a Twenty20 in­ter­na­tional – as they were hu­mil­i­ated at home by Vi­rat Kohli’s tourists from late July to Septem­ber.

This will be In­dia’s last home se­ries be­fore head­ing off to South Africa and England next year. –
