With Rahul Dravid, the head coach of India's limited-overs team in Sri Lanka, making it clear that only one or two players from the squad have a chance to make it the T20 World Cup squad, there will be immense pressure on the players.

While there are four openers - Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devdutt Padikkal - in the squad, the middle-order will see a tussle between Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan (who both play for a common franchise in Indian Premier League), Manish Pandey, Nitish Rana and Sanju Samson.


Only Rana, Gaikwad and Padikkal have not represented India before. Yadav and Kishan have only recently made their international debut, during the home series against England.

"That (England series) was a completely different challenge and every time you come, you play or go in, you have to start from scratch. So this also have to start from zero. That was a different series, this is a different series," said Yadav to the media in an interaction.

"I have to go in the park and perform the same way. So the pressure will be there. If there is no pressure, there is no fun. So it will be a great challenge and I am really looking forward to it," he added.
