Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara has urged his players to build on their impressive display in Ahmedabad when the second Test gets underway in Kanpur on Tuesday.
The tourists are still searching for their first Test victory on Indian soil despite posting a record 760-7 declared in the drawn series opener.
Second innings centuries from Gautam Gambhir and Sachin Tendulkar thwarted Sangakarra's men last week, and attention now turns to Green Park for the second match of the three-Test series.
Speaking ahead of the contest, an upbeat Sangakkara was quick to insist that neither side has the edge despite Sri Lanka dominating for large periods in Ahmedabad.
"There is no psychological edge for us," he said. "It is even-stevens now and we have to start from scratch.
"We are a little disappointed, but ultimately it was the wicket. It was not what we expected.
"Even so, we had them at 32-4 and then we gave it away. We were always positive in our thinking but we can only learn from our mistakes, carry the positives and move on."
Sri Lanka will be without injured pace bowler Dhammika Prasad on Tuesday, but opener Tillekaratne Dilshan will play despite suffering a broken nose.
Prasad, 26, picked up a hamstring strain on the final day of last week's high-scoring drawn Test and will not be considered for selection.
Dilshan, who was one of seven century-makers in Ahmedabad, was injured after colliding with a team-mate while playing football after the Test.
"Dilshan is fine, broken nose (but) perfectly fine," skipper Sangakkara said on Monday. "Dhammika has a grade one hamstring strain, and at this moment don't think he can play."
Sri Lanka could include leg-spinner Ajantha Mendis after the unorthodox bowler sat out the first Test, where left-arm Rengana Herath partnered senior spinner Muttiah Muralitharan.
Experienced paceman Dilhara Fernando, summoned as injury cover, could also play and a decision will be made after a final inspection of the Green Park pitch, Sangakkara told reporters.
Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has also been passed fit after a finger injury forced team management to call up fellow wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik as cover.
After over 1,500 runs were scored on a flat Ahmedabad pitch, both sides are hoping the Green Park surface will provide more assistance to their bowlers.
"There is a bit more grass, but it appears dry underneath," Sangakkara said.
Dhoni added: "The weather is cool so the fast bowlers will get help in the mornings and at some point reverse swing will also come into action. The wicket will also break.
"I think we leaked too many runs in the first Test. It was pretty tough work for the bowlers but they were still eager to bowl and I was pleased with their attitude.
"But I think we ought to stick to more disciplined lines."
As for his side's batting, Dhoni added: "We are a side that looks for partnerships, even if we lose a couple of wickets. One long innings makes it pretty easy for us.
"The pace (at which we score) doesn't really matter because we have players in the side who are capable of lifting the run rate if required.
"The middle and lower order contributed in Ahmedabad and that is a good sign."
