India To Send B Team Against Sri Lanka Series in July 2021 To Play 3 ODIs and 5 T20Is
India will take on Sri Lanka in July without a big star player. As the senior cricketers of the team will be in England for the five-match Test series in England, India to send B team against the Sri Lanka series to play 5 T20Is and 3 ODIs with the rest of the players, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has confirmed.
Naturally, the question arises, how will the team be formed if the senior cricketers prepare for the England series? In this regard, Ganguly said, there is a series of white balls on July 7. And we will play ODIs and T20s against Sri Lanka. So separate teams will be formed for the two series.
Since many of the cricketers in the team will be busy with the England series, naturally many new faces will be seen in the Indian team for the Sri Lanka series. Especially Chetan Sakaria, Chahal, Rahul Chahar, Tewatis are expected to get the opportunity.
Some matches of IPL are still left. The series is said to be organized with Sri Lanka to keep all the players fit and in the game before the IPL.
