India might be playing two different sides for the first time in their history at the same time and this is going to be possible due to the quarantine protocols and the busy schedule. This will open up a lot of spots in the Indian limited-overs squad for the youngsters and test the bench strength of the Indian team too.
The Indian test squad has already traveled to the United Kingdom for the World Test Championship finals and the five-match test series against England. At the same time, BCCI has scheduled a limited-overs series tour against Sri Lanka in the month of July and the big guns won’t be available for the series.
Leaving out the players that have traveled to England already, here is the predicted Indian squad for Sri Lanka Tour.
Predicted India Squad For Sri Lanka Tour:
Shikhar Dhawan (C):
Shikhar Dhawan is one of India’s best limited-overs openers and the 35-year-old has been in terrific form in recent times. He is not in the test squad anymore and he should be the best candidate for the captaincy option for India in the limited-overs tour of Sri Lanka.
Dhawan was the overall top scorer in the recent IPL 2021 and he will be the first choice opener.
