India, without their regular skipper Virat Kohli, is all set to take on Sri Lanka in a three-game One-Day International Series (ODIs) starting on Sunday, July 18. The ODI series was set to start on July 13, but a couple of Covid cases in the Sri Lanka camp led to the matches being postponed. In Kohli’s absence, Shikhar Dhawan has been given the responsibility of leading the young Indian side. Kohli and other regulars on the Indian side are preparing in England for their upcoming five-game 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 have a player in mind for the upcoming T20 World Cup, the team will try him out in the Sri Lanka series. India is slated to play three ODIs and as many T20Is in what will be the last limited-overs bilateral series before the T20 World Cup.
