New Delhi: Not Virat Kohli, but the Shikhar Dhawan-led Indian team will take on Sri Lanka in a white-ball series next month. The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) took to social media and shared a group photo of the Sri Lanka-bound team. In the picture by the BCCI, all players look happy and are smiling. Looks like the picture is clicked at the airport before boarding the flight to Sri Lanka.Also Read - India vs England 5th Test a Birmingham Rescheduled to Suit Sub-Continent Viewers; Check NEW Match Timing

This is not the best Indian team at the moment as Virat Kohli-led India is in England for a Test series. This is what plaudits call a ‘second string’ side. Shikhar Dhawan would be leading the pack and in head coach Ravi Shastri’s absence, Rahul Dravid would be in charge of the side.

A lot of youngsters and new faces are there in the side and they would have eyes on them.
