SL v IND 2021: 5 unlucky players not to get selected for India's white-ball tour for Sri Lanka

India will play 3 T20Is and 3 ODIs against Sri Lanka in July.


Dinesh Karthik | PTIDinesh Karthik has been out of India team contention since the 2019 World Cup and though the veteran cricketer wants to be part of the Indian playing XI, the selectors have seemingly moved on from him.

IPL 2021: Dinesh Karthik ready to lead KKR again; eyes the finisher's role in Indian team

Karthik feels he is still a contender for the middle order of the Indian team and can be utilized as a finisher, given that he was the one to win India the Nidahas Trophy by hitting a six off the last ball in the final against Bangladesh, the last time India toured Sri Lanka in 2018.

With India going for hard-hitting batsmen like K Gowtham, Hardik Pandya, and Krunal Pandya in the middle order, Karthik might need to have a blockbuster second half of the IPL 2021 to make selectors notice him for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
