    IND vs SL Missing Players

    A three-match T20I series between Team India and Sri Lanka will kick off the home season on January 3, 2023. BCCI has recently announced the Indian team squad for T20I and ODI series. Hardik Pandya will be leading the T20I Squads, whereas, Rohit Sharma will lead the ODI squad against Sri Lanka. 

    The Indian national cricket team is undoubtedly one of the strongest teams in the world and has always been a powerhouse in international cricket. However, despite the team’s success, there are some players who have been consistently performing well but have still not been able to break into the Indian squad. These players have been consistently performing in domestic, but their performances have unfortunately gone unnoticed by the selectors. 

    Know the top 3 players who deserve to be in the squad but, despite recent performances, are not included in it.

    Prithvi Shaw

    Prithvi Shaw is a powerful batsman who can put immediate pressure on the opposing bowlers. Throughout the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy season of 2022–2023, he demonstrated his attacking abilities.

    Shaw, a right-handed opener, was crucial to Mumbai’s victory and helped them take home the championship. With 332 runs from 10 games (10 innings), including 1 century and 1 half-century, and a fantastic strike rate of 181.42, he finished second in the tournament in terms of run production. He started playing aggressive shots immediately away and went for the attack.

    Ravi Bishnoi

    One of the great performers at the Asia Cup 2022 was Ravi Bishnoi, he is gone unnoticed for this Sri Lanka series also. He is not only an outstanding fielder but also a fantastic bowler. In the year since he made his debut, Ravi Bishnoi has delivered a superb performance.

    Ravi Bishnoi has taken 16 wickets in 10 T20I matches at an average of 17.12 and an economy of 7.09. The young player had a great chance to secure a berth in the side on the Sri Lanka tour, but he wasn’t selected for the team.

    Prasidh Krishna

    Another participant on this list is Prasidh Krishna. Krishna has shown his mettle in ODI matches. The right-arm bowler amassed 9 wickets in 3 matches during the most recent India vs West Indies ODI series, all at an astounding average of 7.56.

    He also won the player of the series award for his flawless bowling performance and the player of the match award for a 4-wicket haul in one game. The 26-year-old bowler deserved a shot in the IND versus SL T20I or ODI series after his outstanding performance but he remained unnoticed.
