Indian Test wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha on Monday said that his team's first target is to win the opening Test at the Eden Gardens to continue their winning momentum for the three-match series against Sri Lanka. "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 after Indian team's first practice session ahead of the opening Test against Sri Lanka from November 16. Not looking too far ahead of the South Africa series, beginning with Cape Town Test on January 6, Saha said it was about taking it match by match. "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."

Rating Ravichandran Ashwin ahead of others, Saha said the off-spinner posed a big challenge to keep behind the stumps with many variations. "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 Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav. 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. India boast of three spinners Ashwin, left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja and left-arm chinaman Kuldeep Yadav, all are very different from each other.
