SL vs IND : Shikhar Dhawan might lead India during India tour of Sri Lanka

With most of the main players including the likes of Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, and others traveling to England, a lot of new faces can receive a maiden call to the Indian squad.

Also, the BCCI wants all the key players to be prepared for the Test series against England as they can use the one-month break to get accustomed to the England pitches.

“The BCCI president is very keen that all our top players are match ready and since England doesn’t have a white ball leg the month of July can be utilized well,” the source told PTI.

Meanwhile, it is speculated that India’s veteran opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan can lead a relatively young and inexperienced squad during the Sri Lanka tour while Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson can be preferred as first-choice wicketkeepers in the absence of Rishabh Pant.
