Rahul Dravid has been made the head coach of Team India for the tour of Sri Lanka and India has to take part in the three-match ODI and T20 series against hosts Sri Lanka. A virtual press conference was organized before the departure of India for this cricket series starting from 13 July. Team India captain Shikhar Dhawan and coach Rahul Dravid took part in it. Dravid said that it is not possible for all the young players to get a chance to play on this tour. Many young players have been given a place in the team for this tour, out of which six players have not played any international match.
Rahul Dravid said that, I think it would probably be unrealistic to expect us on this short tour that everyone is given a chance which has three T20 matches and three ODIs and the Indian selectors will also be there. These players include the trio of Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav and Sanju Samson to make it to the T20 squad for this year’s World Cup. The series against Sri Lanka will start with ODIs from July 13 followed by T20 matches from July 21.
Former India captain Rahul Dravid said that there are a lot of players in this team who want to cement their place in the team for the next T20 World Cup and want to make some place but I think the main goal of everyone in the team is to win the series. have to try. He said that, our main objective is to win the series and hope that the players will get a chance to perform well. There are only three T20 International matches before the T20 World Cup 2021. I am sure the selectors and the team management must have figured out by now what kind of team they want for this World Cup. While sharing a photo of Dravid and Dhawan, BCCI wrote on Twitter that, say hello to the coach and captain of Team India for the tour of Sri Lanka.
