The Indian cricket team is to go on a tour of Sri Lanka in July. In the 20-man Indian team selected for this tour, the selectors have given a chance to the youth, as an Indian team is already in England. 6 uncapped players have been given a chance in this squad, which includes the names of Devdutt Padikkal, Rituraj Gaikwad, Nitish Rana, Chetan Sakaria, Krishnappa Gautham, Varun Chakravarthy.
But it is obvious that some of these players will get a chance to debut, while some players will be sitting on the bench. But this is a great opportunity for these 6 players, which they would like to capitalize on as soon as they get it. So let us tell you about 3 young players in this article, who can get a chance to debut in 3-3 ODIs and T20I matches played on the tour of Sri Lanka.
3 players of Team India can get a chance to debut
Karnataka opener Devdutt Padikkal has been included in the squad of Team India selected for the tour of Sri Lanka. He was a strong contender and deserving of this selection. Padikkal has batted exceptionally well for domestic cricket and IPL franchise RCB in the last few seasons.
Padikkal batted vigorously for the franchise in IPL 2020 and then scored a century while batting brilliantly in the first half of IPL 2021. Apart from this performance, Vijay Hazare and Syed Mushtaq were the highest run-scorers for Karnataka. In Vijay Hazare, this batsman had scored 4 centuries back to back.
Now he has been included in the squad, but the pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw is present in the team, who can be seen opening. In such a situation, if one of these two players is unavailable or out of form, then obviously Devdutt Padikkal can get a chance to debut.
