Virat Kohli will lead India in the upcoming T20I series against Sri Lanka and the ODI series against Australia in the New Year. Vice-captain Rohit Sharma has been rested for the T20Is, starting January 5.
Fit-again Bumrah back for T20Is and ODIs
Meanwhile, fit-again pacer Jasprit Bumrah will return to international action after being on the sidelines with a back injury after being named in the squads for both series. Bumrah did not feature in India’s international assignments after the tour of West Indies that came right after India’s World Cup 2019 campaign.
Bumrah missed the limited-overs series and the Tests against South Africa and Bangladesh and the recently-concluded limited-overs series against the West Indies at home. Bumrah was seen bowling at the Team India nets on the eve of the Visakhaptnam ODI against the West Indies earlier this month.
