narratives can sometimes be deceptive in the last month or so the site traveling to sri lanka for the limited over series has been relegated as the b team in the common parliaments not because of the players in the team but because of the fact that there’s another team already in england preparing for a test series in reality this side under shekardavan is as good as any cricket team in the world hey guys you’re watching mintra presents rcb 12th man tv the series was due to start on the 13th of july but we live in a world where cricket boats can only control so much despite all their efforts the series also put sri lanka in a bit of a fix since arjuna ranathunga termed the indian team a second string side the hosts will be a little too embarrassed if they end up losing the series but deep down there is an awareness that beating this indian team will be as difficult as beating any top side in the world what to expect a lot of flair from this indian unit most of these young indian cricketers would be using this series as an audition for the world t20 true that they may have another round in the indian premier league as well but performing against an international side in an indian jersey carries an extra point for sure a series will also provide an opportunity for the fans to witness some limited overs action before the five match test series against england as far as the team composition is concerned india is a team full of white ball specialists who have grown on the appetite of some serious ipl cricket over the years shikhar dawan will be leading the team for the very first time while his deputy bowie kumar who missed the flight to england would want to use this as an opportunity to be in the reckoning for future series dev that particle nitish rana shaitan zakaria there are quite a few players who have never been part of an indian squad before and this tour provides them an opportunity to taste the experience of how it feels to wear the blue of team india speaking of sri lanka the last few weeks have been slightly controversial for the hosts three players were sent back after found to have breached the bio bubble in england kusal pereira will be missing the series with a shoulder injury further making life tricky for the host however the nanja de silva showed some spark in england now will be hoping that the home advantage adds some comfort to his batting plenty of battles to watch out for we’ll start with dason shanaka versus navdeep saini dasoon has been made the captain for the series that might add extra responsibility on his shoulders but he will take confidence from his outings against england how he goes against a quick nav deep senior will be an interesting battle to watch number two dushmanta chamira vs shikhar davan chamira too was impressive against england with his bowling the tall pacer has a few tricks up his sleeve to surprise the batsman against shikha dhawan he will have to bring all those to use if sri lanka are to contain the indian captain and finally a killer dhananjaya versus hardik pandya it’s going to be an interesting tussle this one pandya would want to use the series to test his long levers ahead of the ipl and the world t20 back in 2017 dhananjaya bagged 6-4-54 and one must bear in mind that he can be a surprise weapon in the sri lankan arsenal watch these two young stairs turn up the heat in our rcb what segment navdeep saini uzi chahel and dave that particle rcb have a fair bit of representation in the series young and sensational particle will be hoping to get a debut on the tour he has done enough in the ipl and in the domestic competitions to earn a cap yuzi chahel has already said that the world is going to see a different uzi in sri lanka and as far as zany is concerned we all know he likes to keep things simple run and bowl fast he was the man of the series the last time india faced sri lanka in a t20 series in 2020 rcb fans would love to see an encore
