Indian squad for the series includes youngsters like Washington Sunder, Vijay Shankar, Rishabh Pant, Deepak Hooda and Mohammad Siraj.
These players will be under pressure to prove themselves by performing well in this series. Captain Rohit Sharma will not be easy to select a balanced team for the first Twenty20 game.
Following the successful tour of South Africa, Rohit Sharma led the Indian team on Tuesday. The hosts will face Sri Lanka in the first T20 match of the TRI Series at Premadasa Stadium.
India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are participating in the Tri-Series, named Nidahas Trophy.
Captain Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, fast bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jaspreet Bumrah, spinner Kuldeep Yadav and all-rounder Hardik Pandya, have given new faces in the team by resting for the series.
On the other hand, the Sri Lankan team has been performing poorly in international cricket for some time, is suffering from the injury of injury players in this series.
All-rounder Angelo Mathews is the biggest blow to the host team, being out of the series. In addition to Mathews, Shihan Madshanka and Asela Gauharatne have also been out of the series because of injuries, so the hosts will be on the shoulders of Dinesh Chandimal, Upul Tharanga, Thesara Perera and Suranga Lakmal.
Kusle Pereira, who was left out due to injury due to a recently-concluded Twenty20 series against Bangladesh, has returned to the team. Pereira’s return will strengthen Sri Lanka’s batting.
Last year was not good at all for the Sri Lankan cricket team, so the host team would like to answer the critics with a spectacular performance in the Tri Series.
India will have great hopes for captain Rohit Sharma as he and Suresh Raina are the strongest and oldest players on the side of the Indian team.
Playing XI of both teams is as follows
Rohit Sharma (c), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jaydev Unadkat, Rishabh Pant, Vijay Shankar, Mohammed Siraj, Deepak Hooda
