Earlier this week, Twitter doubled the character limit to 280 in an attempt by the social media company to revive the user growth. It hopes the longer length limit will make its service more approachable for more people.

Sri Lankan cricket team is in India for a full series, comprising three Tests, three ODIs and another three T20I matches.

Series starts on Thursday (November 16) with the first Test at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
