New Delhi: Team Dhawan is preparing for the one-day series (Sl vs Ind ODI) against Sri Lanka starting on Sunday, amid the impact of Kovid-19 on Team Virat in England.
Recently, the Indian team played three intra-practice matches as part of preparation and the performance of these matches gave coach Rahul Dravid a new idea about choosing Indias possible XI.
Many players performed brilliantly. Apart from Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav and Navdeep Saini, Kuldeep Yadav stunned in these matches.

It is only after the performance of these matches that many people including the former cricketer are engaged in choosing Indias final XI for this first match.
However, according to our sources in Colombo, we have brought for you the XI with which captain Shikhar Dhawan will take the field. Lets take a look.
1. Shikhar Dhawan (Captain) 2. Prithvi Shaw 3. Suryakumar Yadav 4. Manish Pandey 5. Sanju Samson 6. Hardik Pandya 7. Krunal Pandya 8. Bhuvneshwar Kumar 9. Navdeep Saini 10. Kuldeep Yadav 11. Yuzvendra Chahal
It is clear from this probable XI that coach Rahul Dravid is giving more priority to the performance of the matches and the situation in Sri Lanka.
This is the reason why Dravid has devised a strategy to field in the first match with two specialist spinners. Sri Lankas pitches are slow.
It is not possible to apply big strokes here. And here you will not even get to see more high scoring matches.
