Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews said his team is not prepared for the five-match ODI series in India which starts on November 2.

After the West Indies pulled out of the Indian tour over pay disputes with WICB, the Board of Control for Cricket in India hastily arranged a short series with the Lankans, who have so far played 144 ODIs against India.
