Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma was recalled to the Indian Test squad for the Test series against Sri Lanka, starting 26th of July 2017 at the Galle International Stadium.
India will go into the series without a head coach as the board is yet to decide on Anil Kumble’s successor.
“You got to give credit to Virat that he is just completely straight about it. He has no input, he has not sent any names, but we feel as the Advisory Committee that he is the captain, which is the most important thing in cricket. He and everyone of us need to be on the same page because for us Indian cricket is more important. We are just a small bit; the main bit is the players who are going to play with the coach,” said Saurav Ganguly.
Moreover, India will go into the series as favorites as Sri Lanka attempts to recover from the unexpected loss to Zimbabwe.
India squad: Virat Kohli (capt.), M Vijay, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Abhinav Mukund.
