Colombo: Former captain Sourav Ganguly has said Team India is keen to upstage the Sri Lankans in their own lair and avenge the loss in the Asia Cup final earlier this month.

''We are definitely confident of going back with a win,'' Ganguly told mediapersons here yesterday. ''The boys are just raring to go and avenge the Asia Cup defeat.'' The elegant left-hander refused to atach much importance to past records when reminded that India had lost the Test series when they last visited Sri Lanka way back in 2001.

''Well past is past. We have obviously got a good side. We have done well all over the world and we are confident of a win here,'' Ganguly said.

India are due to play three Tests and five one-dayers with the first Test starting on July 23. They will open their tour with a three-day practice match against the Sri Lanka Board XI from Friday at the NCC sports club ground here.
