India captain Anil Kumble is confident his team can add to their improving overseas Test record in Sri Lanka.
"As a Test unit we have done really well in the last two or three years," Kumble said in Chennai on Monday. "We're looking forward to the challenge in Sri Lanka.
"It is not going to be easy, but we have the potential to go out there and win the series."
Sachin Tendulkar also looks set to surpass Brian Lara's world Test runs record during the Test series in Sri Lanka.
Tendulkar needs 172 runs to beat Lara's mark of 11,953 runs with the three-Test series starting in Colombo on July 23.
Tendulkar, 35, who holds the record for most Test hundreds (39), returns after a groin injury had sidelined him for a one-day tri-series in Bangladesh followed by the Asia Cup in Pakistan.
