Dambulla:

The Indian cricket team is in Dambulla for their first day and night encounter against United Arab Emirates in the first phase of the Asia Cup on Friday. India will be having their nets today at the stadium Dambulla. The Indians played a practice match against Sri Lankan Cricket Academy and thrashed them by seven wickets before their departure to the resort town of Dambulla. Four times champions Indians, who had separate camps at Bangalore and Chennai for the Asia Cup, will be playing an actual match after a long lay-off. After one-day and Test series victories against Pakistan, Indians had taken a long break. With a hectic calendar ahead of them, they will be eager to start their season on a winning note in the emerald isles. In the previous seven editions, Sri Lanka have won twice and Pakistan lifted the cup in the previous tournament held in Bangladesh.
