It is to be noted that Padikkal was the second-highest run-scorer in the Vijay Hazare Trophy earlier this year and also scored four consecutive centuries during that tournament.
Gaikwad has been performing well for the India A team for the past couple of years and also played well for Chennai Super Kings in the 2020 and 2021 seasons of the IPL. He was one of the top preferences for the Indian national team call-up.
Nitish Rana has also represented India A in recent times and we will see if gets an opportunity to play.
Ace spinner Chakravarthy was called up for the Indian tour of Australia last year after IPL 2020. But he has sustained an injury that kept him out for the remainder of the tour. Het got a call up for the T20I series at home against England but failed to qualify for selection after failing the fitness tests.
The SL tour was supposed to kickstart on July 13 but was pushed back to July 18. The team has landed in Colombo and is gearing up for the ODI and T20I series ahead.
