Shikhar Dhawan will captain the Indian team on the tour of Sri Lanka. Dhawan is going to captain for Team India for the first time, so this is a very special tour for him.
The Indian team is starting the tour of Sri Lanka from Sunday.
Team India, captained by Shikhar Dhawan, will start the Sri Lanka tour from today. The first match of the three-match series will be played today at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. The command of the Indian team is in the hands of Shikhar Dhawan, while the responsibility of deputy captaincy has been given to fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Dhawan is captaining Team India for the first time. On the other hand, Dasun Shanaka will captain the Sri Lankan team. The hosts had recently lost 0-3 in the ODI series on the tour of England.
While Team India is playing without key players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah, on the other hand Sri Lanka will also not have their four top order batsmen – Kusal Perera, Niroshan Dickwella, Kusal Mendis and Danushka Gunathilaka. Sri Lanka Cricket has suspended three top-order batsmen for violating the COVID-19 bio bubble in England during their previous series. In such a situation, many new players will get a chance to show their talent. Sri Lanka’s newly-appointed ODI captain Dashun Shanaka said the series with India would be a big challenge without the senior players.
