There will be 2 debutants to watch upon during this ODI series. One of them will be Mumbai Indian’s frontline batsmen Suryakumar Yadav. Sky became the first ever Indian to score a maiden half century in the ongoing T20I. He has made a strong statement about his skills by hitting median 57 runs of 29 balls in his debut T20I against England, on 18th March, in Narendra Modi Stadium. 

Second debutant to look upon will be Prasidh Krishna, who is a young fastballer from Karnataka and was regularly seen in the nets of KKR team during IPL season. He has maintained a decent record with KKR and is generally known for his pace and his ability to swing the ball at 140+km speed.
