The Indian cricket team will visit Sri Lanka in July. Team India Limited will be heading to Sri Lanka for the upcoming series, which will feature notable players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jaspreet Bumrah. At the same time, Team India will be preparing for a five-match Test series against England. India will play the final of the ICC World Test Championship against New Zealand on June 18 and then the five-Test series against England from August 4. A 20-member team has been announced for this. Now, with the exception of these 20 players on the team going to Sri Lanka, the rest of the players have to be selected. Former Indian cricketer and legendary Hindi commentator Akash Chopra has chosen a 17-member squad that will be touring Sri Lanka. Shikhar Dhawan has been named captain of the team, while Hardik Pandya has been named vice-captain.
Due to this, Bhuvneshwar Kumar could not find a place in Team India to tour England
Akash Chopra posted on his YouTube channel, “Shikhar Dhawan is the captain for me. We have seen how he has developed and batted responsibly in the last two years. I choose Prithvi Shah to start the innings with him. In the form that I am, I think he is at the forefront of the race for this role. Akash Chopra has added Hordik Pandya and Krunal Pandya to their 17-man squad. He has been made Hardik’s vice president. “Hardik has been a deputy in my side. Krunal Pandya has done well in the one-day series against England, and then he will be on my side.”
