Top Indian players such as Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma, who were all left out of the Zimbabwe tour, are expected to be part of India's tour of Sri Lanka next month as the selectors will meet on 23 July to pick the team.

"The meeting is scheduled on the 23rd in Delhi," PTI quoted a BCCI source.

Not many changes are expected from the team that toured Bangladesh last month for the one off Test match, though it will be interesting to see if Harbhajan Singh will be retained.

Harbhajan, who was also named in India's tour of Zimbabwe, has not had a great series in the African nation, managing only four wickets.

The senior members of the Indian team were excluded from the Zimbabwe tour as they were involved in too much of cricket right from the tour of Australia, the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, a hectic IPL schedule and India's tour of Bangladesh.

Having been given a decent break, senior cricketers, under the leadership of Virat Kohli, are expected to be fresh and ready to fire on all cylinders, starting with India's tour of Sri Lanka. India will play three Test matches, with the first Test starting on 12 August in Galle, while the second Test, from 20 August, will be played at Tamil Union Oval. The third Test is scheduled to begin on 28 August at the SSC in Colombo.

Sri Lanka will be desperate for a series win against India, after losing to Pakistan at home.

A huge crowd can be expected in the series as one of the best batsmen ever for Sri Lanka -- Kumar Sangakkara -- will be playing his last couple of Test matches, as the elegant left-hander has decided to call it quits following the second Test match.

Prior to the first Test, India will also play three-day warm-up game against Sri Lanka Chairman's XI at the Premadasa Stadium.
