Rohit Sharma to lead Team India in T20Is Triangular series

The ongoing Twenty20 series against the Proteas is now level at 1-1, and the visitors will look to sign off the tour with another series in the bag. The series is now tied at 1-1 and the third match scheduled to be held at Cape Town today will turn out to be the decider of the series.

We have already seen how relentlessly Indian seamers in Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar have played in South Africa.

However, the road ahead for Team India and their cricketers is not easy. In the tri-nation series, from March 6 to 18, India will square off against hosts Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

This competition will be followed by the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) and the country's long tour to England, as they start preparations for next year's World Cup.


At least five top Indian cricketers, including captain Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya, will be rested for the tri-series in Sri Lanka, Indian cricket board (BCCI) sources told TOI on Friday.

If Kohli is rested for the tournament, Rohit Sharma will be the candidate to lead the side. India has been playing non-stop cricket for the past few months, and have been on the South Africa tour since Jan this year.

India's top bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and'Jasprit Bumrah, who must be in dire need of some rest, would probably get the much-required worldwide break when selection panel meets.

Notably, the Indian selection committee chairman had watched Agarwal's match-winning ton in the Vijay Hazare Trophy quarter-final against Hyderabad in New Delhi on Wednesday, according to the report. The matches will be played under lights at Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
