Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer on Saturday predicted that Team India would be a strong contender to win the ODI and T20 series against Sri Lanka despite the absence of some key players. The first match of the 3-match ODI series between India and Sri Lanka will be played at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Sunday. In the series, Shikhar Dhawan will be led by several players, including Team India regular skipper Virat Kohli, who is currently touring England. There are 6 unselected players in the Indian team on their tour of Sri Lanka.
In a video uploaded on his YouTube channel, Jafar said, “This is the second line of the Indian team and there are not many major players. Still, I would like to say that the Indian team is the favorite to win ODIs and T20 trophies. We are fortunate to have got some great talent and talented players. I would like to say that the Indian team is the favorite to win both series. No doubt about it, this is a very strong team. Shikhar Dhawan, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal are a regular part of the ODI team.
When Sri Lankan spinner Suraj Randiv was shy of cricket, fans were severely classified
The most exciting players have been selected, he said. Prithvi Shah is back. Devadut is another amazing talent, Rituraj Gaikwad has got a chance. Varun Chakravathi is in the team and Sanju Samson has also made a comeback. I would love to see these guys, especially when the T20 World Cup is around the corner. This is a great opportunity to see these young talents perform. Jafar has said about Rahul Dravid
As coaches with them, team players have a chance to learn a lot. It is not just cricket but everything that a cricketer needs during his journey. Rahul Dravid is going to be the perfect mentor for all young players.
