Kolkata: Indian cricket team coach Ravi Shastri along with a few other players arrived in the city on Sunday ahead of their first Test against Sri Lanka from next week.

Shastri touched down at the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport late evening while pacer Umesh Yadav and opener Shikhar Dhawan arrived during the day.

Skipper Virat Kohli is scheduled to land on Monday morning along with the rest of the squad members who will arrive in batches throughout the day.

"Shastri has arrived. (Ajinkya) Rahane, (Ravichandran) Ashwin, Rohit Sharma and others are scheduled to arrive later in the night," the local team manager said.

India blanked Sri Lanka 9-0 across formats in their backyard earlier this year. Sri Lanka will play three Tests, three ODIs and three T20s starting next Thursday at the Eden Gardens here.
