Ravindra Jadeja will be back in the team
Team India’s star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who was injured in the Test match against New Zealand, is all set to return to the home series against Sri Lanka (IND vs SL) after recovering from injury. According to the reports, Jadeja, who has been working on his fitness at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore, has reached Lucknow after getting fully fit. And, the quarantine period is over.
The first T20 match between India and Sri Lanka (IND vs SL) is to be played in Lucknow itself. In such a situation, if his report comes negative, then his return in the T20 series is certain. Apart from Jadeja, veteran fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is also expected to return. Bumrah has been given rest in the ongoing series against West Indies.
Test captaincy will be handed over to Rohit Sharma
Apart from 3 T20 matches, Team India also has to play a 3-match Test series. For which the team is expected to be selected in the next 2-3 days. After the resignation of Virat Kohli from the captaincy post, the Indian team now needs a new captain even in this longest format of the game.
In such a situation, it is expected that the captaincy of the Test can also be handed over to Rohit Sharma, who became the new captain of the team in limited overs cricket. Apart from this, news is also coming out quoting sources that, former captain Virat Kohli can be rested during the T20 series.
