India vs Sri Lanka (IND vs SL) ODI, T20 Series 2021 Schedule, Squad, Players List: Shikhar Dhawan will be making his international captaincy debut when India take on Sri Lanka in the three-match each ODI and T20I series. With Indian Test team on a break before Test series against England after losing the World Test Championship final to New Zealand, BCCI is giving chances to a few youngsters on the tour. This will also serve as a test for players who want to prove themselves ahead of the T20 World Cup. For Kuldeep Yadav, it will be a chance at redemption after a string of ordinary performances in the limited-overs format. Prithvi Shaw is also returning to the squad after solid performances in domestic cricket and Indian Premier League (IPL) 14.
A Covid outbreak in the Lankan camp has forced the postponement of the upcoming India-Sri Lanka limited overs series. Instead of July 13, the ODI series is now to commence on July 18, while the final T20I is on July 29 after the rescheduling. The push-back has come in the wake of two Sri Lanka team support staff contracting the virus.
