India tour of Sri Lanka: 'Unfit' Murali Vijay ruled out, Shikhar Dhawan included in 16 member squad

Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan will replace injured Murali Vijay for the upcoming Test series in Sri Lanka from July 26. Murali Vijay, who had suffered a wrist injury during Australia's tour of India, missed the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 season.

BCCI, in a press release stated that Vijay "has complained of pain in his right wrist while playing a preparatory match". Vijay has suffered a wrist injury and will undergo a rehabilitation program before being eligible for selection.

Shikhar Dhawan has so far played 23 Tests and scored 1464 runs at an average of 38.52.

Chasing a competitive target of 191, Lewis smashed his way to an unbeaten 125 off 62 balls with as many as 12 sixes and six fours as the reigning World T20 champions knocked off the runs in only 18.3 overs. He last played a Test for India in 2016 against New Zealand in a home series.

India kick-off their Sri Lanka tour with the first Test at Galle on July 26. Shikhar Dhawan came into the series on the back of some stunning form in the Champions Trophy, he struggled to get going in the Caribbean after the first couple of games. The Virat Kohli-led Team India departs for a full-fledged tour consisting three Tests, five ODIs and a one-off T20 global on July 19. The three Test matches will be played at Galle, Colombo and Kandy, respectively. It was India's first Test series win on Sri Lankan soil in 22 years.
