India captain MS Dhoni wants his team to concentrate on the One-Day International (ODI) series in Sri Lanka rather than the upcoming World Twenty20, according to Sky Sports. “I think what is important is the present,” said Dhoni. “This means we take this series into account and not think too much ahead about the World Twenty20.” India will be looking for a winning start to the series, which starts today, but will face a tough challenge against an in-form Sri Lanka who recently beat Pakistan in ODI and Test series. The World T20 starts in two months in Sri Lanka.
