We should be ready for that in future: Former Pakistan bowler names surprise pick as India skipper for tour of Sri Lanka

With the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, R Ashwin, Rishabh Pant and others in England for the Test series, the squad that will travel to Sri Lanka will be filled with fringe players and promising youngsters, which adds to the debate of captaincy.

The BCCI is yet to announce India’s squad for the tour of Sri Lanka, but already the big question doing the rounds is who is the likely candidate to lead the team in the absence of major players. With the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, R Ashwin and others in England for the Test series, the squad that will travel to Sri Lanka for three ODIs and three T20Is will be filled with fringe players and promising youngsters, which adds to the debate of captaincy.

Shikhar Dhawan, based on his experience is being talked about as the man to lead India in Sri Lanka, but former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria feels the command of the team should be given to someone who can be groomed as a future captain for India.

“The Sri Lanka tour is a great opportunity for India to possibly find its next captain and groom him. The choices aren’t a lot. In fact, there are only two options. One is Sanju Samson, who has captained Rajasthan Royals in the IPL and looked good behind the stumps as well. The second option is the most senior player, Shikhar Dhawan. He is a senior player in ODIs and T20Is,” Kaneria said on his YouTube channel.
