India's Tour of Sri Lanka: Likely ins and outs ahead of ODI squad announcement

New Delhi: Team India is slated to play a three-match one-day international series against Sri Lanka, right after the conclusion of the Test series and the selectors are all set to announce the final 15-member squad today.

Ahead of the announcement here is the possibility for the Team India squad that would take on the Islanders for the ODI series...

Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Ajinkya Rahane are the four candidates for the Openers' slot.

Judging by each, the left-hander seems to be a perfect candidate and sure possibility as an opener. He had been phenomenal during India's Champions Trophy campaign at London where he had amassed 338 runs in five matches which included a phenomenal 128-ball 125 against the Lankans. He did carry on his form scoring a 63 in the second ODI in Windies, but suffered successive failure in the next three.

However, going by his present Test form and past records in ODI matches, Dhawan seems to be a perfect opening batsman for the Indians.
