Team India

Ishan Kishan’s two outings have been far from promising. He had played a knock of 35 off 42 in the first T20I and was dismissed trying to hit his way out of trouble. In the second game, he looked out of ideas against Sheldon Cottrell taking the ball away from him and fell in the second over. India can look to move Kishan to the No. 3 spot and bring in Ruturaj Gaikwad to Ishan a chance to play and accelerated in the middle overs. 

Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Venkatesh Iyer, Deepak Chahar/Shardul Thakur, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal/Kuldeep Yadav, Ravi Bishnoi
