With the Indian Test team on a break before the Test series against England after losing the World Test Championship final to New Zealand, BCCI gave a few youngsters for India vs Sri Lanka 2021 tour. This will also serve as a test for players who want to prove themselves ahead of the T20 World Cup. A Covid outbreak in the Lankan camp has forced the postponement of the forthcoming India-Sri Lanka limited-overs series. Instead of July 13, the ODI series is now to start on July 18, while the final T20I is on July 29 post the rescheduling. The push-back has come in the wake of two Sri Lanka team support staff contracting the virus.
For Kuldeep Yadav, it will be an opportunity to get the rhythm and bounce back after a row of normal performances in the limited-overs format. Prithvi Shaw is also returning to the team after an impressive domestic cricket and Indian Premier League (IPL) 14. Some young players in the team, including Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Chetan Sakariya, Sanju Samson, Prithvi Shaw, look to impact the limited-overs format in Sri Lanka, and the Indian team is training hard in Colombo. Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Krishnappa Gowtham, Varun Chakravarthy, and Nitish Rana were the six uncapped players named in the squad.
