Two January in Mumbai: India will begin their home season in 2023 with a white ball series against Sri Lanka, with the first Twenty20 International being played on Tuesday, January 3 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. With any semblance of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul rested, Group India will be driven by Hardik Pandya in the three-match T20I series against the Asian bosses Sri Lanka, who are chatting with an original capacity crew driven by Dasun Shanaka.

Mukesh Kumar and Shivam Mavi, the pace duo, have been called up for the first time to the Indian team for the T20Is. Other members of the team include Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill, and Harshal Patel. Suryakumar Yadav, a batsman who had a great year in 2022, has been named vice-captain of the T20I team. Sanju Samson is back in the mix after missing Team India’s most recent T20I series.

India headed into the series straight from the Test series whitewash of Bangladesh, while Sri Lanka finished their last worldwide task – ODI series – level 1-1 against Afghanistan in November 2022. Pandya and his team will try to get the year off to a good start by avenging their Asia Cup loss to champion Sri Lanka, who haven’t had a good record against the hosts in the shortest format.
