After the conclusion of the three-match T20I series, Team India and Sri Lanka will regroup in Guwahati to resume their preparation for the 50-over World Cup 2023, as the neighbours are scheduled to play three ODIs, starting on January 10 (Tuesday). While Sri Lanka will more or less play the same squad which played in the T20Is, Team India will see the return of a couple of star players in the squad.
Rohit Sharma will be back as the leader, while Virat Kohli and KL Rahul will take the onus in the middle order. Besides the trio, Jasprit Bumrah is making a long-awaited comeback after recovering from an injury. The speedster will be a crucial aspect for the team looking at the upcoming World Cup, and team management will keep a close eye on his reflexes and performance.
Meanwhile, Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya will be another couple of notable names who will make India’s middle order stronger. Although Ishan Kishan is available in the squad and his double ton is still fresh in everyone’s mind, KL Rahul is expected to get a chance in playing XI as the wicketkeeper. Ishan might have to wait to succeed Rahul as first-choice wicketkeeper.
The first one-day international will take place at Barsapara Cricket Stadium, in Guwahati, and considering India’s star-studded line-up, the tickets for the series opener is already in high demand.
