Posted on 10th May 2021 06:11 pm by rohit kumar

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly on Sunday announced that Team India will visit Sri Lanka to play ODIs and T20 series in July. The team will play a series of three ODIs and five T20 matches on this tour. Ganguly said that the team going on this tour will not include star players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, as both the players will be preparing for the five-match Test series against England at this time. In the absence of both players, there is a question in everyone's mind that who will take charge of the team. In such a situation, let's look at the players who can be made the captain of the team for this tour.


Shikhar Dhawan: Opener Shikhar Dhawan's name tops in the race to become the Indian captain on this tour. Dhawan was named the vice-captain of the team during the Asia Cup in 2018. However, Dhawan did not get that much priority in the limited-overs series in the absence of Rohit Sharma on the last Australian tour. One of the experienced players of the team, Dhawan's bat has also spoken fiercely in IPL 2021. He scored a maximum of 380 runs in eight matches at an average of around 55 before the tournament was postponed indefinitely. During this time, Dhawan, along with fellow batsman Prithvi Shaw, gave the team a quick start and played an important role in winning the match.


KL Rahul: Punjab Kings captain KL Rahul, who made everyone crazy with his batting in the last IPL season, can also be named captain for the tour of Sri Lanka. In the absence of Rohit Sharma on the last Australian tour, KL Rahul was chosen as the vice-captain of the limited-overs series. He received this award after winning the Orange Cap in IPL 2020. Rahul's bat has also spoken fiercely in this IPL season. He scored 331 runs in 7 matches at an average of 67 before the tournament was postponed.


Bhuvneshwar Kumar: The Indian team's fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar was named among the key players who were not selected in the 20-member squad for the tour of England. Many veteran players also questioned the BCCI for not taking them into the team. Bhubaneswar has also captained a few matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the absence of Kane Williamson in the IPL. Bhuvneshwar has taken 164 wickets in his international limited-overs cricket career so far.
