“It will be a competitive series but I guess India will have an upperhand as they have a more or less steady team.

“If they are fit, I believe Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne are two players who can serve Sri Lankan cricket for a long time to come. Jehan Mubarak has had a great domestic season and I am happy that he has been recalled. We have an able leader in Angelo Mathews and Sri Lanka do have a bright future,” said Jayawardene when asked about two players who can replace them
