India official team squad Vs Sri Lanka for ODI series. BCCI has announced 15-Man team squad against Sri Lanka ODI series 2017.
After defeating Sri Lanka in the test matches quite comprehensively, India would like to continue with the same passion in ODI series as well. They have some great players up their ranks and would like to show their authority over the islanders.
India will be playing in the captaincy of Virat Kohli who has been leading them quite well ever since he has taken over from MS Dhoni. His record as a captain has been quite impressive and would like to get another series win under his belt. His batting average has been top notch and he would definitely want to continue with his superb run against the islanders while playing a key part in his side’s away win.
Batting Strengths Batting Lineup
Indian batting has been their hallmark over the years and it has not changed even now. Rohit Sharma is present at the top with Shikhar Dhawan and both have scored heavily for India in recent times. Dhawan even showed glimpses of his superb touch in the Test matches where he scored two hundreds, including a massive 190 in the first test. Besides, they have hard hitting Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya and MS Dhoni in the middle as well. Ajinkya Rahane will also bring some experience to the camp as well.
Bowling Strengths Bowling Lineup
As for their bowling, Indians have a wonderful mix of pace and spin to challenge the Sri Lankan batsmen. They have the agility of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar on one hand and the mysteries of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav on the other. Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur are also amongst the good new additions to the Indian squad.
Overall it seems a pretty well-balanced side and we’ll have to wait and watch how India play against Sri Lanka after boosting their confidence through a perfect Test Series victory.
