BCCI announced the Indian squad for the upcoming tour to Sri Lanka in July. AS many as six new inclusions have been made into the 25-member squad. Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Krishnappa Gowtham, Chetan Sakariya, Varun Chakravarthy, and Nitish Rana are the players who have been rewarded due to their domestic performance.

A total of six games (3 ODIs. 3 T20Is) will be played between July 13 to July 28. All the matches will be played at Colombo’s Premadasa stadium in empty stadiums, Shikhar Dhawan will lead the Indian contingent in the series while Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been assigned as his deputy.

In this article, we take a look at the players who did deserve a spot in the Indian squad for SL tour.

With enough spin options in the Indian squad, Krishnappa Gowtham‘s selection is a matter of debate. The team will field two or a maximum of three spin options in the playing XI judging by the conditions in Sri Lanka. With Yuzvendra Chahal and Krunal Pandya being almost guaranteed selections, Gowtham’s selection ahead of Kuldeep Yadav or Varun Chakravarty will always be questionable.

Thus it will be really interesting to see how does the BCCI uses him and the other players in the six games given the number of options that the board has at their disposal.

Roped in by Chennai Super Kings for 9.25 crores he did not get a chance to make his debut for the side in the first half of IPL 2021. It will be interesting to see if he gets a game in the UAE leg.
