India will be traveling to Sri Lanka in July 2021 for a white-ball tour comprising of 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is. Since the main first-choice players are currently in the UK for the ICC World Test Championship final and the England Test series, the BCCI selection committee chose to go with domestic white-ball performers.
While Shikhar Dhawan was named captain and Bhuvneshwar Kumar named vice-captain, players like Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson, Hardik, and Krunal Pandya were included in the 20-man squad.
Apart from this, Indian Premier League (IPL) performers like Rahul Chahar, Nitish Rana, K Gowtham, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devdutt Padikkal, and Chetan Sakariya were picked as well.
But there were some players who had done well in domestic cricket and even in IPL but failed to get a callup for the Indian team on their white-ball tour to Sri Lanka.
Therefore Team COC picks five such players who were unlucky not to get selected for the Sri Lanka tour.
Check out the 5 unlucky players not to get India call-up for the Sri Lanka white-ball tour
