India, without their regular skipper Virat Kohli, are all set to take on Sri Lanka in a three-match One-Day International series (ODIs) starting on Sunday, July 18. The ODI series was scheduled to begin on July 13 but a couple of Covid cases in the Sri Lanka camp led to the postponement of the matches. In the absence of Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan has been given the responsibility to lead the young Indian side. Kohli and other regular faces in the Indian side are in England preparing for their upcoming five-match Test series against the hosts. On the eve of the first ODI, India’s stand-in skipper Dhawan said that if Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri has a player in mind for the upcoming T20 World Cup, the team will try him out in the Sri Lanka series. India are scheduled to play three ODIs and as many T20Is in what will be the last limited-overs bilateral series before the T20 World Cup.
