The Indian cricket team will tour Sri Lanka in July. Team India has to take part in three ODIs and T20 matches series against hosts Sri Lanka. The ODI and T20 teams selected for this tour will be quite different as many of the main players of Team India are going to tour England in June where they have to play the first ICC World Test Championship and then the five-match Test series against England. The team's head coach Ravi Shastri will also accompany the main team on a tour of England and bowling coach Bharat Arun and batting coach Vikram Rathore will also accompany him. In such a situation, it is being discussed that the team that will go on the Sri Lanka tour can be its coach Rahul Dravid.
According to a report by Cricbuzz, Rahul Dravid may be the coach of the team going to Sri Lanka and this is also being discussed. Rahul Dravid will go on a tour of Sri Lanka and he will be accompanied by some other people from the National Cricket Academy. The team to be selected for the tour of Sri Lanka includes Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Devdutt Padyakkal, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Navdeep Saini, Manish Pandey, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Khalil Ahmed As such players can be included.
Team India has not been announced yet for the tour of Sri Lanka, but there is no doubt that the bench strength of the Indian team is very strong and a fantastic team will be selected which will give a tough competition to Sri Lanka. In the absence of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma for the tour of Sri Lanka, who will be made the captain of the team will also be a matter to be seen, but former Indian cricketer Deep Dasgupta said that Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are the biggest contenders for this.
