Sri Lanka series will start

BCCI announced the name of Gautam Gambhir on Tuesday, July 9 and appointed him as the new head coach of Team India. Gambhir will replace Rahul Dravid on this post, who left the team after Team India's title win in the T20 World Cup. Gautam Gambhir's journey with Team India will begin with the Sri Lanka tour, which will start from July 27. On this tour, Team India will first play the T20 series and then the ODI series. In this series, the command of Team India will be in the hands of two different captains.

According to the report of news agency ANI, along with the Sri Lanka tour, the players who won the T20 World Cup will also return after a break. Only Jasprit Bumrah will not be seen in this, who will be given rest from the entire tour. Hardik Pandya, who was the vice-captain in the T20 World Cup, will make a comeback from this series and will take charge of the T20 team. It is believed that with this series, he will be appointed as the permanent captain of the T20 team.

Rahul will take over the captaincy of ODI

But Hardik's captaincy will remain only till here for the time being. The report, citing BCCI sources, claims that Hardik Pandya will not be the captain in the 3-match ODI series but he will play under someone else's leadership. The report states that the command of Team India in the ODI series will be in the hands of KL Rahul. Rahul has also captained Team India before. Rahul will return to this format after the 2023 World Cup final. His innings in the final was criticized a lot but before that final, his performance throughout the tournament was strong.
