India will play three ODIs and three T20s in Sri Lanka. Many of India’s young players will have a chance at the series, as most of the Indian team will be touring England during this period. In the absence of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, there has been considerable debate about who will be given the command of Team India. According to sources, the BCCI’s view of Shreyas Iyer as the next captain could be in command of Team India.
According to media reports, Shreyas Iyer has not been selected for the tour of Sri Lanka, despite his fitness and injury. Iyer underwent shoulder surgery on April 9 and is still recovering from an injury. Doubt about their fit. After this type of surgery it usually takes 4 months to fully fit. A BCCI source told the Times of India that if he is fit he will automatically lead the leadership
There are options.
BCCI sources said Shikhar Dhawan and Hardik Pandya were one of the strongest contenders for the leadership in the absence of Shreyas Iyer. Shikhar Dhawan has scored more runs in IPL 2021. Hardik said that for a while everything wasn’t going well with him. Mumbai Indians did not bowl in IPL 2021. However, they still remain an option for selectors. Because they have successfully established themselves as the X Factor. This is why he is ahead of his colleagues.
Due to this, Bhuvneshwar Kumar could not find a place in Team India to tour England
Dhawan has performed brilliantly in the last two IPLs, a BCCI official said. He is the oldest of the players available for selection. He has been performing spectacularly for India for the past 8 years. Regarding Hardik, he said that although he is not bowling for the Mumbai Indians, he is a player who can bring the X factor and that too is an available option. Look at him from a performance standpoint, ahead of those who play with him. However, who knows that extra responsibility will bring even better performance from the inside out.
