New Delhi: The Indian team is gearing up for the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan Cricket posted a video of all the boundaries of India’s second intra-squad match at Colombo. The likes of Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Prithvi Shaw and Nitish Rana are seen timing the ball to perfection.

Thus, it is a good sign for the Indian team as the players have been able to get some practice under their belt. Meanwhile, Kuldeep Yadav, who hasn’t in the best of forms in the recent past, scalped three wickets whereas his bowling partner Yuzvendra Chahal and Navdeep Saini grabbed two scalps apiece. Chetan Sakariya and Deepak Chahar were able to take one wicket each.
