Sehwag to lead India
11/9/2005
 

          RAJKOT, Nov 8 (Cricinfo): Indian captain Rahul Dravid will miss Wednesday's sixth one-dayer against Sri Lanka as the hosts continue their rotation policy despite losing the previous match.
Vice-captain Virender Sehwag will lead India in Dravid's absence, described by coach Greg Chappell as a move to give younger players a chance after holding an unassailable 4-1 lead in the seven-match series.
Dravid suffered a hamstring niggle during his unbeaten century in Sunday's fifth match in Ahmedabad and did not field, but Chappell insisted the injury was not serious.
Rookie fast bowlers Vikram Rajvir Singh and Sri Sreesanth will join Dravid on the bench from the 15-man squad.
India lost at Ahmedabad by five wickets after resting star batsman Sachin Tendulkar and frontline bowlers Irfan Pathan and Harbhajan Singh. It was a move described as "cocky" by former Sri Lankan captain Arjuna Ranatunga.
Sri Lanka won the day-night game after India piled up a challenging 295-8 on the back of opener Gautam Gambhir's century on his first appearance in the series and Dravid's fluent unbeaten 103.
Dravid's omission means Tendulkar, Pathan and Harbhajan will play Wednesday with Suresh Raina being the likely super-sub.
Teams
India (likely) 1 Sachin Tendulkar, 2 Virender Sehwag (capt), 3 Gautam Gambhir, 4 Yuvraj Singh, 5 Mohammad Kaif, 6 Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), 7 Irfan Pathan, 8 Ajit Agarkar, 9 Harbhajan Singh, 10 Murali Kartik, 11 Rudra Pratap Singh, Supersub: Suresh Raina.
Sri Lanka(likely) 1 Sanath Jayasuriya, 2 Kumar Sangakkara (wk), 3 Upul Tharanga, 4 Mahela Jayawardene, 5 Marvan Atapattu (capt), 6 Tillakaratne Dilshan, 7 Russel Arnold, 8 Chaminda Vaas, 9 Dilhara Fernando, 10 Nuwan Zoysa, 11 Muttiah Muralitharan, Supersub: Farveez Maharoof.
