Indian Premier League may have been deferred indefinitely. Still, India has a jam-packed schedule in front of them starting from June. And before that, all the staff and players need to be vaccinated and fulfil the COVID-19 quarantine protocols. BCCI president Sourav Ganguly recently revealed that India will play an away limited-overs series against Sri Lanka. The series will include 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is.
According to reports, the Indian team management would be selecting a white ball specialist team for the Sri Lanka tour. A 20-member squad will tour England to prepare for the WTC final and the England series.
This scenario will open the door for the players who have been knocking on the selectors’ door with consistent performance.
Let’s take a look at players, who can make a debut in ODIs this July:
In IPL 2020, Kishan was the leading run-scorer for Mumbai Indians, with 516 runs at an average of 57.33. The performance earned him his first international call-up to play against England in T20Is. The 22-year-old wicket-keeper batsman from Jharkhand has a decent List A career with 2549 runs in 77 matches, including the highest score of 173. He is a very likely candidate to get an ODI call this time.
