Indian cricket team reaches Colombo

January 26, 2009 16:44 IST

The Indian cricket team, led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, arrived at the Bandaranaike International airport in Colombo this afternoon and was received by Sri Lankan officials.

The players were given a warm welcome. A large crowd had turned up to catch a glimpse of the stars as they trooped out from the terminal.

The Indians had a practice session in Chennai in the morning from where they boarded a flight to Colombo.

Dhoni and his teammates will take on the hosts in five-match one day series, beginning with the first ODI on Wednesday at Dambulla.

The tour will be rounded off with a Twenty20 international on February 10.
