India will fight Sri Lanka in a road tour in July next month. The Indian group, led by Sikhar Dhawan, will participate in an ODI and T20I series. The India series against Sri Lanka’s ODI series starts on July 13 with the first match. The 2nd and 3rd ODIs will take place on 16 and 18 July respectively. The T20I series between India and Sri Lanka will consist of three matches played from July 21 to July 25.
As many senior Indian players linger for England against England’s five-match Test series in August-September, another group has been prepared for the Sri Lanka tour. It consists of experienced players like Shikhar Dhawan, Hardik Pandya. Manish Pandey, Yuzvendra Chahal and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Some young and undressed players are also part of the group. There will be few players who might not get a choice in the XI during India against Sri Lanka’s ODI series. Here we are talking about five such players who will possibly be in the entire ODI series in Sri Lanka.
5 Indian players who will be in Sri Lanka throughout the ODI series
Ruturaj Gaikwad can be finished throughout India and Sri Lanka ODI series. The Maharashtra cricketer is a starting batsman. The right batsman has played few good shots for Chennai Super Kings over the past two IPL seasons. In IPL 2021, he piled up 196 runs in 7 games with 2 fifties.
However, the group already consists of brilliant openings like Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw. Both of these players were phenomenal during IPL 2021 for Delhi Capitals. Therefore, it is less likely that Ruturaj Gaikwad will get a chance to open up in the ODI series.
