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.
