“They are not forced to sit out. I mean, the others are doing good as well. As players they do understand that, and they need to wait for their opportunity, and they are preparing for that, they train hard and whenever that opportunity comes, they do well and hold on to their places,” Rathour said.
Interestingly, Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan both practised for long at the nets on Saturday. Though the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma skipped practice in Trivandram.

Will Sky – Ishan & SKY get a chane? Gill stroked 70 runs in the first ODI encounter. He could not to get going in the second ODI encounter. However it is unlikely he can be dropped of XI.
Kishan who scored a record-making double-century in his last ODI had to warm the bench in the first two games – may again have to sit out. His only chance to make it to the XI would be if any of the BIG THREE i.e Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli or KL Rahul sits out.
The biggest talk during the ODI series was absence of Suryakumar Yadav. Another victim of priorities, the World No 1 T20 batter failed to find a place in India’s ODI Playing XI despite scoring his third T20 ton.
He can get a look in but for that either the BIG-3 or Shreyas Iyer will have to make way for him at No 4 spot. Yadav played his last 50-over match against NewZealand in November 2022. Iyer got starts with the bat in both games but he failed to make a big score on both occasions.

IND vs SL 3rd ODI: What changes to expect from 3rd ODI?
India could ring in some changes in the bowling department to manage the bowlers’ workload. The only left-arm pacer in the squad, Arshdeep Singh, could get a look in.
Mohammed Siraj has made a big impact in this series, picking up five wickets, with an economy rate of 4.73.
Yuzvendra Chahal missed the second ODI with a sore right shoulder. If he is available on Sunday, it will be interesting to see if Kuldeep Yadav once again misses out after a Man of the Match performance.
