Netizens flooded Twitter to react to India’s squad selection for the Mastercard Sri Lanka tour of India consisting of ODIs and T20Is. The BCCI released an article stating the names of the players for the upcoming tour in January, 2023. Although the article didn’t state anything regarding the inclusions or exclusions, the fans didn’t wait to react. 

The article read,

The All-India Senior Selection Committee has picked India’s squads for the upcoming Mastercard Sri Lanka Tour of India to be held in January 2023. The tour comprises three T20Is and as many ODIs.

India’s squad for the upcoming Sri Lanka tour raises many questions. The absence of big names like Virat Kohli, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rishabh Pant, and Shikhar Dhawan (who has been leading the team for most ODI series in 2022) left us wondering. Meanwhile, Sanju Samson is selected for the T20Is, but his name is not on the ODI squad list.

Moreover, Hardik Pandya will lead Team India in the T20Is, and Rohit Sharma will take charge of the ODIs. Rohit is yet to recover fully from the left thumb injury he suffered during the second ODI against Bangladesh. 

The T20I squad looks fresh, with players like Rahul Tripathi and Shubman Gill along with two young seamers Shivam Mavi and Mukesh Kumar, earning their maiden call-ups. Meanwhile, Suryakumar Yadav will also return and has been named as the vice-captain of the T20I side.
