Colombo: The Indian team has gone on a tour of Sri Lanka for a limited overs series, where several players from the team are expected to make their debuts. Rahul Dravid, who was included as the coach for this series, had also said that this series may give some options to the selectors for the T20 World Cup.
The three-match ODI and T20I series between India and Sri Lanka will start from July 18. Devdutt Padikal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Nitish Rana, Krishnappa Gautam, Varun Chakravarthy and Chetan Sakariya are expected to make their debuts during this period.
Padikal had scored 737 runs in the Vijay Hazare ODI tournament at an average of 147.4. Apart from this, he scored 473 runs in 15 matches in IPL 2020 and 195 runs in six matches in IPL 2021 season.
Maharashtra batsman Ruturaj has been taken on the basis of IPL performance. He scored half-centuries in three out of six matches of IPL 2020, while he scored half-centuries in two out of seven matches of IPL 2021.
Nitish Rana is an important player of Kolkata Knight Riders and along with being a middle-order batsman, has also entered as an opening. Rana scored 398 runs in seven matches of Vijay Hazare Trophy. It will be interesting to see if Dravid gives him a chance to play.
Karnataka off-spinner Krishnappa’s selection of bowling all-rounder was shocking. He did not perform well in the recent domestic tournaments including the IPL. Krishnappa played just two matches in the IPL and took one wicket.
Varun has been a successful player of Kolkata. He took seven wickets in this season of IPL and 17 wickets in the 2020 season. But his fitness has proved to be a setback for him. Varun was selected for the Australia tour but had to withdraw due to injury. Although he did not disclose it.
Sakariya was selected ahead of Jaydev Unadkat. He was bought by Rajasthan Royals for 1.2 crores. Sakariya can be helpful for Team India and maybe he can get a place in the team.
