Prithvi Shaw
Shikhar Dhawan (C)
Ishan Kishan (wk)
Manish Pandey
Suryakumar Yadav
Hardik Pandya
Krunal Pandya
Deepak Chahar
Kuldeep Yadav
Bhuvneshwar Kumar/ Navdeep Saini

If it was Prithvi Shaw and Ishan Kishan in the first match, it was Suryakumar Yadav and Deepak Chahar’s brilliance with the bat which took India to a win in the second one. This will be another chance for these youngsters to shine given that they won’t get that many opportunities once the senior players return. Hardik Pandya has looked off-colour in both the games and he will look to make a mark this time. Chahar will look to continue his good form with both bat and ball.
