Indian cricket team, led by Anil Kumble, arrived here on Tuesday to play a three-Test series against Sri Lanka starting July 23.

The Indians will start their campaign with a three-day practice match against Sri Lanka Board XI from Friday.

They play their first Test in Colombo from July 23. The Test series would be followed by a five-match ODI series.

One-day and Twenty20 team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has opted out of this series, citing fatigue caused by non-stop cricket.
