Opener Shikhar Dhawan, who will lead the Indian limited-overs team to Sri Lanka for a limited overs series next month, has said that life in bio-bubble has helped bring back old times when players would develop bonding by being around each other even after matches.

When we went home from [the suspended] IPL, we rested and got to spend time with our families after such a long time. We got to know our families from close and that is what we enjoyed. Our training also continued Dhawan told the media ahead of the team’s departure to Sri Lanka.

Then we quarantined here (in Mumbai), we have a nice blend of seniors and youngsters. As seniors we have great opportunity to share our experience with youngsters — from our successes and failures. We are together while living in a bubble or a secluded area. That culture – prevalent 10-15 years ago – when all boys used to be together after the day’s play is coming back due to the bio-bubble life. We are spending time together. It is helping in bonding. That is a sign of a good team — good bonding, trust and I am sure, we will gain from each other’s experience, he said further.

India will play three ODIs (July 13-18) and three T20 Internationals (July 21-25) in Sri Lanka.
