After playing the upcoming three-match T20 series against West Indies, Team India will take on Sri Lanka for three T20 internationals and two Tests. India are yet to announce its new full-time captain in Test Cricket. As per recent reports, Rohit Sharma is the frontrunner to take the leadership role.  After missing the Test series in South Africa, he will be making his comeback in the longest format of the game against Sri Lanka.

Apart from the captaincy, India are yet to announce the squad for the two-match Test series as well. Perhaps, we could see a lot of young players making it into the squad and some senior players might be rested. In this article, we have predicted three senior players who could be rested for the Test series against Sri Lanka.

Perhaps, Ishant Sharma’s time as a prominent fast bowler of the Indian Cricket Team has come to an end. He played his last Test match in November 2021 against New Zealand. Ishant Sharma was included in India’s squad for the Test series in South Africa but didn’t play any game.

The Indian Cricket has begun its transition phase in Test Cricket and thus the senior fast bowler might find it difficult to get back into the Test team. If reports are to be believed, the selectors are looking to give chances to young fast bowlers and thus Ishan Sharma might be rested for the Test series against Sri Lanka.
