India announced the team for the practice match against the touring Sri Lanka scheduled to be held late in October. The team will be captained by Manoj Tiwary, while Rohit Sharma will make a comeback after the injury he picked up in England.


 

 


Unmukt Chand was in terrific form in the two practice games against West Indies, where he scored an unbeaten half-century and a ton, both in winning causes. Kuldeep Yadav, who was a part of the ODI squad against West Indies but did not get a game, will get the chance to prove himself this time around. Manish Pandey, who was selected for the one-off T20 squad which was called off, also gets the chance to feature.

Squad: Manoj Tiwary (c), Unmukt Chand, Manish Pandey, Manan Vohra, Karun Nair, Rohit Sharma, Kedar Jadhav, Sanju Samson (wk), Parvez Rasool, Karn Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav, Stuart Binny, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jasprit Bumrah.
