BCCI have released new images of the squad ahead of their white ball streak against Sri Lanka. The Indian players were seen getting ready for a photoshoot, which happens first for some of them in an Indian jersey.
The Indian team has six uncapped players. Many of them are likely to debut in the next series. Coach Rahul dravid already has experience working with young people, having previously coached U-19 teams. In preparation for the series, the Indian players had a fun outing while participating in the photoshoot.
Although the shooting session seemed intense, the team continued to relax while playing table tennis and billiards. senior coach Bhuvneshwar Kumar was seen playing soccer in a casual environment. BCCI shared the video of the same with the caption:

The ODI series will start on July 18
The start of the series has been postponed due to a fear of covid-19 in the Lankan squadron. Batting Coach Andy Flower and Data Analyst GT Niroshan tested positive just days after completing the UK tour. All players have been asked to quarantine themselves and the matches against India have therefore had to be rescheduled.
Indian players are out of quarantine and are buzzing to kick off the series. Since T20 World Cup arrives in a few months, young people will be looking to make the most of their opportunity.
While Team India is currently struggling to find an established spinner, this series of white balls should give a clear indication of who is the best choice for the flagship event. Yuzvendra Chahal, Rahul Chahar, and Varun Chakravarthy are probably the preferred options.
