IND vs SL, 3rd T20I: 2 more players can debut in the third T20, know who will get a chance in Playing 11
Colombo, 29/7: The third and final match of the T20 series between India and Sri Lanka (India vs Sri Lanka, 3rd T20I) will be played at 8 pm on Thursday. This match is like a virtual final as the Sri Lankan team won the second T20 match by 4 wickets on Wednesday to level the series 1-1. The Sri Lankan team (IND VS SL) played good cricket in the second match, but somewhere it also got the benefit of major changes in the playing XI of the Indian team. In fact, after Krunal Pandya was found to be Corona positive, a total of 9 players including Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya were out of the series, which weakened Team India’s playing XI. By the way, the Indian team also made some mistakes which they would not like to repeat in the third T20. However, the biggest question here is that after the defeat in the second T20, will the Indian team change its playing XI in the last match (India Probable Playing 11)?
If we look at the performance of the second T20, then India can enter the third match with 2 changes. Fast bowler Navdeep Saini Injured was not imposed on the bowling in the second match and he also got injured during fielding, so his play in the third T20 could be doubtful. At the same time, left-arm fast bowler Chetan Sakaria proved to be very expensive in the second T20. On a difficult pitch for the batsmen, Sakariya conceded 34 runs in 3.4 overs and had an economy rate of 9.30. In such a situation, it is possible that India should give another player a chance in his place. Now the question is, which two players can get a chance in the playing XI in place of Sakariya and Saini in the third T20?
Will India enter the field with 4 spinners?
Colombo’s pitch has proved to be the best for the spinners so far. In both the T20 matches, the spinners left an impact on the match. In the second T20, India included three spinners in their playing XI in the form of Varun Chakraborty, Kuldeep Yadav and Rahul Chahar. All the three bowlers also performed well. In such a situation, the Indian team can give a chance to an additional spinner in the playing XI in place of Navdeep Saini. Left arm spinner R. Sai Kishore may get a chance.
