Mumbai: Chief selector Krishnamachari Srikkanth on Wednesday said he is confident that the Indian team would put behind its dismal show in England, Australia and Bangladesh and return to winning ways with a bang during the upcoming tour of Sri Lanka.
"We are looking forward to this particular season. Being the first tour of the season we really wanted the best possible team. Of course Sachin Tendulkar is not available. He's starting off from the New Zealand series. So we have selected the best available team based on the performance," said Srikkanth.
"I think it is a very good side. Don't forget we have a strong batting line up and good bowlers...(like) Zaheer Khan and everybody. We (selectors) are confident of doing very well in Sri Lanka," said Srikkanth after the selection panel members, along with coach Duncan Fletcher, sat down here to pick the one-day and Twenty20 team for the July 21-August 7 tour of Lanka.
