Without precedent for history, fans will observe two unique Indian cricket crews at the same time. While the Test side, under Virat Kohli, is in England for a five-match series, a group of white-ball experts is in Sri Lanka for three ODIs and a huge number, beginning from July 18. Obviously, the crew for the Sri Lanka series is missing numerous conspicuous names, and it is fascinating to perceive how the Men dressed in Blue perform.
Discussing Sri Lanka, they haven’t tasted a lot of accomplishment in the previous few years. They went to England as of late and experienced a decisive victory in both ODI and T20I series. Be that as it may, they should leave no stones unturned to crush the ‘second-string’ Indian group.
Veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan will lead Team India in Sri Lanka while pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been named as vice captain. This will be Dhawan and Kumar’s first administration task in Team India tones, and the couple would be resolved to convey. Prithvi Shaw has additionally been gotten back in the white-ball group close by Navdeep Saini and Sanju Samson.
Star young talents like Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Chetan Sakariya have gotten lady call-ups because of their noteworthy exhibitions in the Indian Premier League and homegrown circuit. Among the experienced faces, the crew includes Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and Manish Pandey. The side in fact looks adjusted and is even considered top choices for the visit.
Discussing Sri Lanka, they need to do their absolute best to challenge the Men in Blue. Wicketkeeper-batsman Kusal Perera will lead the group, and a ton will rely on him. It seems like Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) are hoping to make the group for the future as veterans like Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal and Dimuth Karunaratne haven’t featured in white-ball cricket for some time.
This implies youths have the onus to challenge the Men dressed in Blue. Despite the fact that Dhananjaya de Silva, Wanindu Hasaranga and Avishka Fernando have been noteworthy recently, the shortfall of experienced names can hurt the host group.
Consequently, calling Sri Lanka dark horses for this series will not be right with Team India having every one of the bases covered.
