The mysterious spinner Varun Chakravarthy is likely to make its international debut as a powerful India, with many powerful IPL performers, and the match against Sri Lanka in the T20 international tournament that opens on Sunday has begun to become an overwhelming favorite.
After losing a game in the ODI series, Shikhar Dhawan’s team hopes to perform better in the game against Sri Lanka. This team is leading in almost all divisions.
However, coach Rahul Dravid will want to look at Chakravarthy, who can break steals, carrom balls, and catch the ball from right-handers, proving his prowess in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Due to poor physical condition and injury-related issues, the 29-year-old Chakravati missed the away series in Australia and the home series against England. Even if the Indian team is looking for a spinner for T20, he will like him The fairy tale continues the UAE World Cup.
Chakravarthy is a qualified architect. He is more like a tennis player. He started playing cricket seriously in his later years and won his stripes through his outstanding performance in the Tamil Nadu Super League (TNPL). This allowed him to obtain his first IPL contract.
He is a beautiful story. If he can enter the world T20 lineup, it will be very spectacular, because he is not a product of a structured cricket system.
Another debut may be one of Devdutt Padikkal and Ruturaj Gaikwad, both of whom are IPL performers. With Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav heading to England, the team management may not risk letting these two players play.
Padikkal’s elegance is highly anticipated on the international stage. He will be mentored by Captain Dhawan, who won his T20 competition in the last two editions of the IPL.
Both Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson are expected to be included in XI, and Manish Pandey will be eliminated after an indifferent ODI series. The Pandya brothers-Hardik and Krunal-are the automatic choice of this format.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahar will return to the court after a good rest, and Yuzvendra Chahal is likely to join Krunal and Chakravarthy’s slow bowling department.
For Sri Lanka, the first victory over India in its native ODI nine years later may be just the transformation that the country’s cricket ecosystem needs after years of chaos.
Dasun Shanaka is a young captain who tries to show instinct on the court, but in their team, there are some excellent players such as Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Chamika Karunaratne and Avishka Fernando, who will try to challenge the Indians in quality.
The bowling of Akila Dananjaya and Praveen Jayawickrama in the last game showed that the dilapidated Premadasa course will grip and provide some cornering, and the dew in July will not be a factor.
