Sourav Ganguly confirms India will be touring Sri Lanka for 3 ODIs and 5 T20is in July

Recommended Posts

So, Bhuvi and Pandya have been saved for LOI series vs Sri Lanka.

 

ODI team will be:-

 

Prithvi Shaw

Shikhar Dhawan

Manish Pandey

Suryakumar Yadav

Ishan Kishan

Hardik Pandya (c)

Krunal Pandya

Bhuvaneswar Kumar

Yuzvendra Chahal

Prasidh??

T Natrajan

 

T20s should have Samson at 3 and rest remains same.

This should be historic.

 

Some of you might remember AUS fielded their A team in the triangular ODI tournaments all the way back in 90s. Obviously, more recently we have had boastful chatter on how India could field two teams given the depth available.

 

Always felt cricketing merit alone was never going to be enough. The commercial viability makes this possible and, going forward, will make this necessary. There's the formal objection that there can only be one national team for record and stats keeping purposes. But that can easily be overcome by branding the national test, ODI and T20 teams separately.

 

Fingers crossed this takes off in a big way.

Replace pandey with Samson. Pandey will be in squad but not playing 11. Sky to play in 3 i suppose. My uncapped members will be

 

Tewatia

Varun C

Harshal

Padikkal

It might also be possible that some of our key players feature in Sri Lanka T20 series till July 15 and then leave for test series in England. Maybe for T20 series only.

Honestly I am pumped for this.  Great great move & I expected this tour to happen. 

So Dhawan might be leading the teams as the only experience player.  Hopefully Iyer gets fit as well by July. 

Paddikal Shaw will surely be picked. 

 

Only worry would be pace department.  Apart from Bhuvi & D Chahar it will be an inexperienced attack.  Nattu & Saini should be fit as well.

Either Dhawanb or Manish Pandey will lead this team :((

 

Openers- Shaw, Dhawan, Paddikal, Ishan (wk)

Middle order - SKY, Samson, Pandey, Nitish Rana

All rounders - Krunal Pandya, Tewatia, Vijay Shankar, Harshal Patel

Spinners - Varun C, Rahul Chahar, Ravi Bishnoi

Pacers - Bhuvi, Chahar, Saini, Kartik Tyagi

 

Rana wont last long in international. 

 

Harshal ??

 

Tyagi ?? too soon...only if we lack options.

Same for bishnoi- to early...needs to add more to his game. May do well for a few series but will be caught soon. This can be the series when kuldeep can get his confidence back

 

Shankar - only if its odi and they wanna play him at 4,5.....ny below its pointless.

 

Actually shankar shud have been in england and axar here.

This is the India A team. It will have some players who may not long last at the international level. Harshal and Rana could be in that category. May or may not have a future but should be picked in the A team. They are definitely in the top 35-40 cricketers of the country.

 

Kuldeep should be kept away from limelight for sometime. Let him sort out his technical issues with his coaches and gradually build his confidence.

How about Chahal?  I don't think he should get to play ahead of young guns like Rahul Chahar & Bishnoi.  Rahul Chahar will get picked most likely but grooming Bishnoi won't be bad move against weaker sides.
