Shikhar Dhawan to lead Team India in Sri Lanka; Sakariya, Padikkal receive maiden call-up

The Board of Control for Cricket in India announced the squad for the upcoming limited-overs tour of Sri Lanka in July. India are scheduled to play three ODIs and as many T20Is in the island nation between July 13-25.

Shikhar Dhawan has been named the captain of the side, while experienced pacer Bhuvneswhar Kumar will be the vice-captain on the tour.

India’s first-team captain Virat Kohli as well as vice-captain Rohit Sharma will be two of the many first-choice players who will not be a part of the SL tour, as they will remain in England to prepare for the five-Test series.

Here is the Indian squad:

Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Prithvi Shaw, Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Suryakumar Yadav, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Nitish Rana, Ishan Kishan (Wicket-keeper), Sanju Samson (Wicket-keeper), Yuzvendra Chahal, Rahul Chahar, K Gowtham, Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (Vice-captain), Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini, Chetan Sakariya
