Many senior cricketers will not be available for Team India during the next series. Love Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah will instead be in England ahead of India’s five-match test series starting in August.
The team for the Sri Lanka series is a mix of young and experienced players with Shikhar Dhawan slotting in as captain. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will serve as Dhawan deputy during the series.
Most of the Indian crickets selected for the Sri Lanka trip were last seen in action during the American Premier League (IPL) 2021, which was indefinitely postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
IPL 2021 is set to resume in the September-October window and will be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
