INDIA AND BANGLADESH IN SRI LANKA T20I TRI-SERIES, 2018
Having finished a game late on Monday night, the team opted to stay indoors, providing no peek into their minds about the selection plans for the next game. But, India are likely to continue with KL Rahul, whose stay at the crease was cut short by him stepping onto the stumps. Whether Deepak Hooda can come in place of Vijay Shankar will be a conditions-driven call given the pacer might relish the overcast conditions more than the offspinner.
Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Vijay Shankar/Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Jaydev Unadkat, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal
Taskin Ahmed’s below-par performances in the two contests could start bothering Bangladesh, and in that case they might look in the direction of Abu Jayed and Ariful Haque. The duo managed to crank up some pace in the nets facility after having waited for the weather to clear up for long on the eve of the match.
Probable XI: Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah (c), Rubel Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Soumya Sarkar, Nazmul Islam, Liton Das, Abu Jayed/Ariful Haque, Mustafizur Rahman, Mehidy Hasan
