Three big selection puzzle solved
- Who opens with Rohit? – As Iyer is OUT, Rohit & Shubman Gill will continue to open for India. Ishan & SKY will bat in MIDDLE ORDER.
- Who bats at No 5? – It most probably will be Ishan Kishan
- Kuldeep Yadav or Yuzvendra Chahal? Most probably Kuldeep will get a nod ahead of Chahal.
- Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Umran Malik – Pace Trio to continue

Shreyas Iyer getting ruled out has solved Rahul Dravid’s one problem. His ouster helps Suryakumar Yadav coming back to the team at No 4. Virat Kohli with rich vein of form and considering his status is undroppable at the moment. Hence, India will have Shubman Gill playing in the ODI. But whether he will open or play in the middle-order is a big call that the team management has to take.
Hardik Pandya’s return will also bolster the line-up. The newly promoted ODI vice-captain was rested for the 3rd ODI against SriLanka. As he takes the No 6 slot in Axar Patel’s absence, India may overlook Shardul Thakur.
