India vs Sri Lanka: Rohit Sharma To Lead Inexperienced Side in T20Is; Sundar Included in Squad

New Delhi: MSK Prasad led selection committee has announced a relatively inexperienced squad for the upcoming three match T20I series versus Sri Lanka. Virat Kohli, as expected has been rested from the series, and Rohit Sharma has been handed the responsibility of leading the team.

Youngsters like Washington Sundar, Deepak Hooda and Basil Thampi have been rewarded for their consistent performances, while Mohammad Siraj has been retained after the New Zealand series. Another surprise inclusion is that of Jaydev Unadkat.

Washinton Sundar has been a consistent performer with both bat and ball in domestic cricket, and the 18-year-old has been rewarded for his performances. On the other hand Basil Thampi churned out some crucial performances for Gujarat Lions in the IPL.

India will play three T20Is in Cuttack, Indore and Mumbai.

Squad: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj, Basil Thampi, Jaydev Unadkat.
