In absence of the players who are part of the test squad (scheduled to play in UK) the selectors have given chance to players who have been performing at the domestic level continuously. Karnataka opener Devdutt Padikkal, Rituraj Gaikwad and the left arm pacer Chetan Sakaria get a maiden call up for the Indian team for the upcoming white ball tour of Sri Lanka. Shikhar Dhawan has been appointed the captain for this tour while Bhuneshvar Kumar will be doing the deputy duties.
