India are set to take on Sri Lanka in a bilateral limited-overs series starting July 18, 2021 in R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo for 3 ODI and 3 T20I matches. Sony Sports Network have the broadcast rights to telecast the series in India. The ODI and T20I series will be broadcast live on Sony TEN 1, Sony TEN 3, Sony TEN 4 and Sony SIX. Live streaming of the matches will also be available on the Sony Liv app. Collaboration between SonyLIV and YuppTV will give access to YuppTV users to watch India vs Sri Lanka live matches on SonyLIV through YuppTV.
With the senior players engaged in the upcoming Test series clash with England, a young squad has been picked for the Sri Lanka tour. Under the leadership of captain Shikhar Dhawan, coach Rahul Dravid, and vice-captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the young squad will take on the Sri Lanka team. The 20-member contingent has quite a few fringe players and will be coached by Rahul Dravid on the tour. On the other hand, Sri Lanka come off the back of an England tour where they lost all matches until the last one was washed out.
Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Krishnappa Gowtham, Chetan Sakariya, Varun Chakravarthy, and Nitish Rana were the six uncapped players named in the squad. There were also five net bowlers named for the series. There will be a lot of responsibility on the shoulders of senior players as they not only have to perform but also guide the young lads too.
The players in Indian team include – Shikhar Dhawan (c), Prithvi Shaw, Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Suryakumar Yadav, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Nitish Rana, Ishan Kishan (wk), Sanju Samson (wk), Yuzvendra Chahal, Rahul Chahar, K Gowtham, Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (v/c), Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini, Chetan Sakariya.
