The Board of Control for Cricket in India, on Thursday (August 10), has confirmed that the squad for the upcoming limited-overs series against Sri Lanka will be announced on Sunday (August 13)

Virat Kohli & Co. are currently involved in the Test battle with the hosts and have already sealed the series by winning the first two games of the series. The world number one Test side won the series-opener by a record margin of 304 runs before thrashing the Islanders by an innings and 53 runs in the second Test at Colombo and will look to continue the winning streak during the third Test, scheduled to be played at Pallekele from August 12.

Well, it will be interesting to see whether the selectors rest the senior players for the limited-overs series which consists of 5 One-Day Internationals followed by a solitary T20 International. The majority of the players have been playing since the time the team left for the Caribbean in July 2016 for a four-Test series.

The series was followed by a mammoth home season consisting of 13 Tests, 8 ODIs and three T20Is. It was followed by the Indian Premier League, Champions Trophy and a limited-overs series in West Indies. Overall, India have played 43 international matches across all formats so far and with the Sri Lankan team not in best of forms at the moment, the selectors can certainly give some of the players including captain Virat Kohli, who has missed just one Test since the West Indies tour of 2016, a much-needed rest.

Moreover, the series in Sri Lanka will be followed by a busy home schedule once again. The upcoming season at home will have 3 Tests, 13 ODIs and 11 T20s—between September and December before the team leaves for South Africa in January. Not only that, the series against Sri Lanka will also give the selectors an opportunity to test the bench strength.

Meanwhile, the ODI series will start from August 20 while the tour will end with the one-off T20, scheduled to be played on September 6.
