The BCCI announced Thursday that India will play a limited-overs series against Sri Lanka in July. In the absence of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan has been given command of the team. Meanwhile, fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been selected as the team’s vice-captain. Many of the young players who have performed well in the IPL have been given the opportunity. Chetan Zakaria, who debuted in the IPL this year, is the most shocking name on the team. Chetan was delighted when he was selected in Team India and said that playing for India was his father’s dream.

Speaking to Indian Express, Chetan Zakaria said, ‘I want my father to come here to see all this. He wanted to see me play for India. I am missing him so much today. God has shown me many ups and downs in this one year. It has been a very emotional ride so far. I lost my brother and a month later I got a big IPL contract. Last month I lost my father and God chose me in Team India. I was in the hospital for seven days while my father was fighting for life. No one can fill that gap. My late father and my mother allowed me to pursue cricket.
