India is looking for another series win but this time under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy. After winning the ODI series, India is looking strong as a team compared to the shady Sri Lankan side. Still, they have a chance of finishing the year on a high if they go on to win both the T20I from now on.
Rohit, on the other hand, did wonder by promoting Dhoni to number 4. It will be interesting to see if he continues there. Spin Duos came good as usual for India; the bowlers were able to vary the pace perfectly while the Sri Lankan bowlers didn’t. Although the conditions are different here, Chahal and Yadav will want to get things done at Indore.
Coming to Rohit Sharma’s batting, the hitman showed what he is capable of, in the ODI but when it comes to T20I, Rohit’s average is not impressive in 2017. Also, Against the Lankan team, he has failed miserably and averages less. Will he try to change that?
Or will he become the bunny for Mathews once again who has dismissed him for 10 times already?
2017 is almost over but Sri Lanka is yet to find the right eleven. Will they break the jinx here? Will anyone stand up and take the team to victory?
When: 7.00 PM IST
Where: Holkar Stadium, Indore
What we can expect: Once again the dew factor will come into play and both the captains will be aware of it going ahead with the toss.
