IND vs SL Series : Team India is now ready to rock Sri Lanka under the captaincy of Shikhar Dhawan. The coach of this team will also be Rahul Dravid. The pair of Rahul Dravid and Shikhar Dhawan have already worked together for Team India. Meanwhile, opener Shikhar Dhawan has said that life in the bio-bubble has helped bring back the old times when players would develop a bond by being around each other after the match. Captain Shikhar Dhawan told the media before the team left for Sri Lanka, when we went to our house after the suspended IPL, we took rest and spent time with our families after such a long time. We got to know our families closely and that’s what we liked. Our training also continued.
Shikhar Dhawan further said that then we quarantined in Mumbai, we have a good mix of seniors and youngsters. As seniors, we have a wonderful opportunity to share our experiences with the youth. The culture when all the boys lived together after the day’s play is coming back because of Bio-Bubble Life. We are spending time together. It is helping to bond. That is one sign of a good team- good bonding, trust and I am sure we will benefit from each other’s experience.
India will play three ODIs (13-18 July) and three T20 Internationals (21-25 July) in Sri Lanka. The 35-year-old Shikhar Dhawan, who has played 142 ODIs and 65 T20 Internationals, said that it is a great honor to represent the country at the highest level. Shikhar Dhawan said that it is a matter of great honor for me to captain India. Working with Rahul bhai also. I have played under his coaching when I was captaining India A in Bangladesh. We harmonize with each other. We want an environment in which boys can express themselves, be themselves. That’s how we’ll get the best out of them.
