Amid heavy security presence, Sri Lankan cricketers on Sunday sweated it out at the nets to prepare for the second Test against India starting here on November 24.

The entire team marched into the ground at around 9:30 am and exercised for a while before practising at the nets.

The drawn first Test's double-centurion Mahela Jayawardene, Tillakaratne Dilshan and skipper Kumar Sangakkara did some batting practice with local bowlers.

Star off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan and Ajantha Mendis later bowled for a while.

Tight security arrangements had been made for the practice session with a number of policemen stationed at the stadium.

There was a breach of security at the stadium on Saturday when a man carrying a gun had entered the premises hours after the two teams landed in the city.

The opening match of the series in Ahmedabad had ended in a draw.
