'Lanka ready to face Indian challenge'

Ahmedabad: Sri Lankan skipper Kumar Sangakkara has said that previous record doesn't matter and his team is ready to face the Indian challenge.

Addressing reporters here on Saturday, Sangakkara said that previous record didn't matter for his side.

"What happened before really doesn't matter to us, it is a new test match and new side so you will have to play well and be prepared yourself physically and mentally for the challenge. If you can do all your preparations, execute the game plan well then you probably get on the top," he added.

"We don't care about the past record. We have tried our best all the times but India was better than us so they won it and won the series, so that is not going to put us down. We will try because as a player and as a Cricketer you have to try and try...this time we have a good side, good batting and bowling attack," said Muttiah Muralitharan, flamboyant Sri Lankan off-break bowler.

He also said that he would try to deliver his best performance in the upcoming series, which would be, last oversees series.

"I am going to retire next year after West Indies tour to Sri Lanka. So this is going to be last oversees test series, I will try my best and try to finish it nicely," he added.

The first Test match, beginning from November 16 will be played in the city's Sardar Patel stadium. The other two Tests will be played in Kanpur (November 24-28) and Mumbai (December 2-6).
