The three-match T20I series between India and Sri Lanka concluded on Saturday (7 January) with India claiming it 2-1. The Men in Blue, under Hardik Pandya, defeated the Dasun Shanaka-led Sri Lanka in the third T20I by 91 runs. Now, the two teams will play a three-match ODI series starting on 10 January. While Sri Lanka will have almost the same faces as the T20I series, India will see a few major changes to the squad.
The first big change will be in captaincy as Rohit Sharma will be back at the helm of affairs. Meanwhile, the likes of KL Rahul and Virat Kohli will also be back in the team. Another major change in the squad will be the return of pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah who will be making a comeback after missing out for months. Although reports have claimed that the pacer might miss the three T20Is, an official confirmation from BCCI is still awaited.
