India's wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha on Monday said that the team has set its sights on winning the first Test at Eden Gardens against Sri Lanka starting on November 16.

"We are yet to see the wicket but the first target is to win the first Test and get momentum to win the series," Saha said in a PTI report.

Asked about the upcoming South African challenge, he added, "Every match is important and poses a different challenge, there's nothing like preparation. We will go match by match. If we do better here then we will think of the SA series."

On keeping, he told PTI that Ravichandran Ashwin is really tough to stand up to. "Ashwin is ahead of others. He has got many variations, also the length varies, so it's tough against him. He has more variation than Jadeja and Kuldeep.

"We have played many matches in Ranji, India A and during practice. The more you keep, the better idea you develop. It becomes easier after a point. I've always played with them in all my 28 Tests," he said.
