    IND vs SL: India Squad Announced for India vs Sri Lanka ODI Series. Who is India Captain?

    Team India have named a 16-member squad for the upcoming three-match home series against Sri Lanka and the biggest update is that Shikhar Dhawan has been dropped from the ODI squad. Incidentally, Shikhar had captained the India ODI team during the previous few series against New Zealand, South Africa and West Indies in the absence of Rohit Sharma. However, after missing the Test series in Bangladesh, Rohit has recovered from his thumb injury and will lead the national team in the Lanka series. Also, premier wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has been dropped from both the ODI as well as T20I squads for the Sri Lanka home series. India’s T20I captain Hardik Pandya has also been announced as Rohit’s deputy in the ODI team while Shardul Thakur has not been named in the 50-overs side.

    Both Ravindra Jadeja and Jasprit Bumrah are yet to attain complete fitness and they are likely to return for the series against New Zealand at home. The likes of Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Washington Sundar and Axar Patel are the four spinners part of the ODI team while Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh are the frontline pace bowlers.
