India announced squad for ODI and T20 against Sri Lanka

Indian selection committee is ready to take on Sri Lanka in next ODI and Twenty20 series by announcing the different two squads officially. There are two more new faces in the T20s squad when Sreesanth will be replaced instead of Ishant. Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir are in both the 15 men squads.

The two new faces are Ashok Dinda and R Ashwin.  Ashok Dinda is played on the side of West Bengal Team on the other hand Ashwin from Tamil Nadu.  Ishant Sharma will be seen in the T20 squad with the Bengal paceman Ashok and Tamil all-rounder Ashwin.

It is a big chance to the new players but the question why they are going to debut in the upcoming t20 matches against Sri Lanka. The Bengal man was performed well in the IPL and also in Ranji Trophy for WB side.
