Injury-prone India opener KL Rahul is down with fever, two days before the start of the first Test against Sri Lanka on Wednesday.

Earlier, India's top batsmen, including skipper Virat Kohli, got plenty of time in the middle as the visitors scored 312-9 on the second and final day of their warm-up tie against Sri Lanka Board's President XI which ended in a draw.

Sri Lanka skipper Dinesh Chandimal will miss the first Test against India next week after being admitted to a hospital with pneumonia and has been replaced by Rangana Herath as captain of the team.
