1. Shikhar Dhawan
Dhawan will be leading the team in this series and this will be the first team he will be seen as an Indian captain
2. Prithvi Shaw
The young opener has been in red-hot form lately and would be determined to shine in national colours as well.
3. Manish Pandey
In Virat Kohli’s absence, Pandey, a veteran of 26 ODIs, is likely to occupy the crucial number three slot.
Yadav will make his match-awaited ODI debut in the series and many eyes will be on his performance.
5. Sanju Samson (WK)
With Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul not being in the squad, Sanju Samson is likely to serve behind the stumps in the ODI series.
6. Hardik Pandya
With many veterans not being in the squad, all-rounder Hardik Pandya has to deliver from the front.
7. Krunal Pandya
Hardik’s elder brother Krunal has a plethora of experience of playing in IPL and it would be interesting to see how he performs against the Lankan Lions.
8. Bhuvneshwar Kumar
The veteran pacer will lead India’s bowling attack in the ODI series and expectations are high from him.
9. Deepak Chahar
Chahar has been around the Indian team for a while. However, he now has a chance to stamp his authority in the blue jersey.
10. Chetan Sakariya
The left-arm pacer, who plays for Rajasthan Royals, impressed one and all in IPL 2021 and would like to trouble the Lankan batsmen as well.
