The Indian team with white balls, led by Shikhar Davan, featuring six unlimited players, arrived here from Mumbai for their four-week tour, which will include six limited matches against Sri Lanka starting on July 13th.
Senior station wagon Hardik Pandya shared a story with Instagram with the caption: “Touchdown, Sri Lanka, Colombo.”
The Davan-led team will play three ODIs and three T20 Internationals in the island nation.
Young weapons like Devdutt Padikkal, Prithvi Shaw, Nitish Rana, Ruturaj Gaikwad and newcomer Chetan Sakariya are expected to appear in the country, which also has two goalkeepers at the door in young Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson.
The day before he left, Davan had said it was “a pleasant combination of experience and youth.”
According to the Sri Lankan cricket website, the Indian team will be quarantined in the room from June 29 to July 1 and then will be phased out from July 2 to 4 and subsequently team training from July 5.
They will also play simulated team games for a better idea.
