3rd ODI: India’s conundrum whether to experiment or not after series win

With the sequence already within the bag, the crew could relaxation ‘Kulcha’ and play the younger weapons, with Krunal because the third spinner.

India coach Rahul Dravid should select between experimenting and persevering with the profitable mixture in his bid to make sure a clear sweep in opposition to Sri Lanka within the third and remaining one-dayer right here on Friday.

Whereas Shikhar Dhawan-led India gained the primary recreation by seven wickets, Deepak Chahar pulled a heist in the second along with his match-winning unbeaten 69 because the guests gained by three wickets.

Now, it stays to be seen whether or not India proceed with Prithvi Shaw, who acquired scores of 43 and 13, to companion the skipper on the prime, or go in for stylish Devdutt Padikkal or an equally elegant Ruturaj Gaikwad – each excellent Checklist A gamers.

However Chahar, who has now proven that he can bat, can be a key participant within the T20 arrange, and therefore he could possibly be rested, with the three shortest format video games lined up.

The spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav (2/48 and 0/55) and Yuzvendra Chahal (2/52 and three/50) did fairly nicely within the first two video games. However with the likes of off-spinner Krishnappa Gowtham and gifted Rahul Chahar, ready within the wings, it is going to be a tough name on whom to play.

With the sequence already within the bag, the crew could relaxation ‘Kulcha’ and play the younger weapons, with Krunal because the third spinner.

For Sri Lanka, a win within the remaining recreation would do wonders to their confidence after practically pulling off a win within the second recreation.
