11. Avesh Khan
Mohammed Siraj is likely to miss this game having suffered an injury in the previous match. In his place, fans could see Avesh Khan make his debut for the Indian team.
10. Deepak Chahar
Deepak Chahar was also expensive, picking up one wicket for 42 runs, but will get a nod.
9. Bhuvneshwar Kumar
Bhuvneshwar Kumar did something similar, taking two wickets for just 24 runs from his four overs. His coming back into form would certainly please the team management.
8. Ravichandran Ashwin
Ravichandran Ashwin’s second rise as a master T20 bowler continued as he delivered yet another fantastic spell in the middle overs. It was his double-wicket over, which shifted the momentum slightly into India’s favour.
7. Axar Patel
Axar Patel scored a run off the only delivery he faced. However, the left-arm spinner would be slightly disappointed with the kind of day he had with the ball, giving 31 runs from his four overs.
6. Venkatesh Iyer
The Madhya Pradesh all-rounder didn’t get a single over in the previous match but could be seen bowling a couple, if not more in the next match. It was absurd given the fact that he was picked ahead of some of the other players, but didn’t get a chance to bowl.
5. Rishabh Pant
Rishabh Pant has always batted below Iyer in their IPL team, Delhi Capitals. However, when the two have featured for India in T20Is, Pant has batted ahead of him more often than not.
4. Shreyas Iyer
This 26-year-old was selected as a reserve player in the T20 World Cup 2021. In his 28 T20I matches, Iyer has scored 550 runs with a strike rate of 133.82.
3. Suryakumar Yadav
Suryakumar Yadav has been raring to go and score some runs at the no. 3 position for quite some time and he has managed to do so. He played quite a brilliant knock of 62 runs from 40 balls which formed the mainstay of India’s chase in the previous game.
Rahul’s knock was limited to one four and one six as he was dismissed for 15 runs from 14 balls.
1. Rohit Sharma (C)
Rohit went on to smash 48 runs from 36 balls. He would be disappointed with the fact that he didn’t get a fifty and finished off the chase, but his captaincy was quite impressive.
