Indian cricket team: Captain and Coach

As the Indian side is playing with a second-string team captain and coach both are different this time. This team can also be known as India A. Shikhar Dhawan is the captain of this side. Dhawan has experience of captaining in IPL. He has captained Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL. It will be interesting to see how Dhawan handles his new role.

Ravi Shastri is the head coach of the Indian team. But for this tour, Rahul Dravid will coach the Indian team. He will coach the team for playing against Sri Lanka. Rahul Dravid has experience of coaching IPL franchisees. He has been also instrumental in grassroots developments in Indian cricket. Dravid has played an important role in grooming youngsters who eventually played for the Indian national team. Dravid will be a superb coach. Also, his past work of developing young players and backing them which gave positive output is commendable.

Sri Lanka cricket team: Captain and Coach

The Sri Lankan team is one of the weakened sides in world cricket. The departure of Jayawardene and Sangkara from their team started a downfall in world cricket. The Sri Lankan team now lacks quality batsmen and all-rounders. They might have some quality pacers at the moment but they need a lot to work on batting. Kusal Perrera is the captain of Sri Lankan team. The explosive opener is a young skipper. His batting style is aggressive and also glovework is good.

Mickey Arthur

Mickey Arthur will coach this Lankan team. He has coached South Africa, Australia, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. His experience of working with various teams will come in handy. Arthur has played a lot of domestic cricket in South Africa. The South African coach will play an important role. As the team needs an uplift in their quality of cricket Arthur will help them make it.

Kusal Perrera Captaincy record

Kusal Perrera is the newly elected captain of the Sri Lankan cricket team. He is known for his explosive brand of batting. Perrera has captained the team for 3 ODI matches so far. He has just won 1 match out of that. Kusal Perrera has started his T20 captaincy with the series against England. At this point of time, Sri Lanka has lost the first two matches against the English side. So, his record as a captain is also not very good.

Shikhar Dhawan Captaincy record

Shikhar Dhawan will be captaining the national side for the first time in his career. The conditions will suit his captaincy. He has young boys in his team who have exceptional talent. Also, there is some experience with the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya. So, this series is expected to register a good captaincy record on his name.

Dhawan has been captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad for a short stint of 10 matches. He has only won 4 in that period. Also, in IPL the level of the team was quite different. For India, Dhawan will be leading a strong and young brigade.

Head to Head Record: ODI and T20

India has played Sri Lanka 165 times in ODI. They have won 91 matches while lost 56 matches. This makes the win percentage quite good. 61.82 is the win percentage against this team. These two teams have played 19 T20 matches. 13 matches were won by India while Sri Lanka won only 5 matches.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has picked 17 wickets from 13 matches against Sri Lanka in ODIs.  Shikhar Dhawan has scored 289 runs in 9 matches against Sri Lanka in T20 cricket. Yuzvendra Chahal has picked 14 wickets from 6 matches against Sri Lanka in the T20s.

Key Players

India has announced their squad. Looking at the number of youngsters and newcomers in the squad, it can be also labeled as India ‘A’. There are a lot of youth players in the squad. Some of them might get their debut on this tour. On the other hand, Sri Lanka has not yet announced their squad. I think, there will be not any changes in the Lankan squad which is playing against England in the ongoing series. This series will be an exciting contest as it will display the depth of Indian cricket.

India

For India, the experienced Shikhar Dhawan will be the most pivotal player. He will have the challenge to lead the young boys well and score runs at the top of the innings. Dhawan has to use his captaining experience in the IPL. Also, he will have to score runs as the most experienced player in the side.

Another key player is the Bhuvneshwar Kumar. With his experience and swing, he will have the responsibility to pick wickets in the powerplay. Bhuvneshwar will also lead the bowling unit of the team. He will have to guide the youngsters for their line and length.

Hardik Pandya will also be a crucial player for the Indian side. His explosive batting becomes handy in the lower order. If his fitness allows, Pandya can also bowl a couple of overs for the team. If Pandya is in the form on any given day, the team can build a mammoth score.

Sri Lanka

Kusal Perrera becomes the most important player for them as their skipper and an opener. A lot depends on the opening partnership for a big total and Perrera has the responsibility of giving a flying start. He has been starting aggressively but lacks consistency. He has not been able to score big against major teams. That is a concern but if he gets going Sri Lanka will hope for a victory.

Isuru Udana will be the key all-rounder for the team. He has the batting ability and can pile up some runs in the lower order. Also, in bowling, he is effective with his pace variations. He can beat the batsmen at pace, This gives him an advantage in a limited-overs game.

Wanindu Hasaranga is a leg spinner who will be important in the Sri Lankan setup. His leg spin is very effective and also surprises batsmen with the wrong one. Hasaranaga is very effective in T20 cricket. He has taken 26 wickets in 17 T20 matches.
