Former Sri Lanka Captain Arjuna Ranatunga slammed the island’s sports leaders for agreeing to the tour by a ‘B Team’ Indian side without top stars.
The team led by opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan will play three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and three T20 International matches, starting on July 13.
Yadav insisted that Ranatunga’s comments had not affected the squad as it prepared.
“Everyone is completely focused, the way the practice sessions are going,” Yadav told a virtual news conference.
“We are really excited and ready for that challenge,” he added.
“We are just here to have some fun, enjoy this series and take a lot of positives from here.”
“It’s a great challenge and responsibility for each and every one to come out here and express themselves,” he added.
