At the moment, Indian cricketers are enjoying a break after the completion of the Indian Premier League's fifth edition on May 27.

The tour of Sri Lanka marks a busy schedule ahead as they host New Zeland in a Test series in August and will again travel to Sri Lanka for the ICC World Twenty20 2012 starting from September 18.
