India Test captain, Virat Kohli, who will lead the side to Sri Lanka in a three-Test series seeks the support of fans to rally behind the Indian team for their upcoming tour of Sri Lanka. In the short video, Kohli introduces himself, asks the fans to support his team and requests them to follow them at BCCI.tv.  The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the 15-man squad for the series and it did not have many surprises. Leg-spinner Amit Mishra was included as the third spinner in the squad, which already has Harbhajan Singh and Ravichandran Ashwin. Karn Sharma, India’s first-choice leg-spinner was injured and hence did not make it to the squad. READ: India tour of Sri Lanka 2015: BCCI announce Test squad

India recently drew the one-off Test played against Bangladesh at Fatullah as rain played spoilsport for most part of the match. The series against Sri Lanka will be the last one for Sri Lanka legend Kumar Sangakkara. Sangakkara will hang up his boots after over  years of international cricket. He played in the first two Tests in the recently concluded series against Pakistan and will play the first two Tests against India as well. India will be looking to get their first win under Kohli, who took over as skipper Dhoni’s shock retirement after the Test against Australia at the end of 2014. Plus, this will be good opportunity for Sri Lanka to bounce back after a disappointing series loss to pakistan.
