Team India have won the toss and have opted to bat first, keeping the opening pair same as Ishan Kishan will have to sit out again. Suryakumar Yadav finally comes in but Shreyas Iyer continues to play as India rests Hardik Pandya, which makes them a bowler short. Washington Sundar comes in but Umran Malik gets rested.
This means India have only 5 bowlers and no other backup bowler for the 3rd ODI.
Rohit Sharma: We will bat first. Looks a good pitch, try to make the most of it. Still a lot of areas we can keep improving, today gives up a chance to perfect those. We want to play close to a perfect game, we’ll never have the perfect game. Hardik and Umran are rested, Washington and Suryakumar are in.
India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma(c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul(w), Suryakumar Yadav, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj
