Even though indians do struggle in seamer friendly conditions preparing fast bowling tracks could well backfire.

India are the ultimate nightmare for us as we simply cannot cover them. They have us well covered on all areas. The other issue is, of late, we cannot play quality spin and we would never play pace properly. I would still opt for balanced wickets which favor the bowlers and looking for low scoring games where 300 can be a winning score. If we prepare flat tracks India will get 500+ every game and it will be a matter of if we are able to survive.

The main strategy is mentally strong and aggressive, do not think BCCI would not give us any future tours so we must play with respect and make sure the Indian public is not disappointed.

BCCI is rich because of the population in India but it takes two teams to play so SLC show some self-respect and do not just bow down to all what BCCI wants...... Yes BCCI would say I am not playing Sri Lanka and play Aust, Eng so let it be but make sure when ever SL meet India you beat them. This is very similar to what BCCI is doing to Pakistan but sadly they never play Pakistan unless in ICC tournaments.

Well for the tour you must have a few good left arm seamers who can bring the ball back into the right handers that would be very handy vs India.

Know the enemy's weakness.

Pace is India's weakness, and sadly it's our weakness as well.

If we make spin friendly pitches, and if one or two of their batsmen get hold, then they would score beyond 400+.

Our batsmen are not cut out of the same cloth, we can't bat long innings to get big hundreds and double hundreds.

If we let them a chance their batters can get big scores.

So we should make seam bowling friendly pitches and try to get them out below 400.

And somehow put an effort to get close.

We can't get rid of Zimbabwe tail, so I don't see much of a chance against India.
