header already fixed
The opening pair could not do anything special against Pakistan. Rohit could not even open his account. At the same time, KL Rahul could only score 3 runs in 8 balls. Due to which India could not make a big score. But both these batsmen are big players who, if they are in their rhythm, can spoil any bowling order. Virat Kohli would not like to make any changes in the opening pair. Kohli himself will land at number three.
Many changes fixed in the middle order
Suryakumar Yadav’s performance against Pakistan was disappointing and he could not play a big innings. In his place, Virat Kohli would like to give Ishan Kishan a chance, because Ishaan is in excellent form. He has played many big innings in IPL and warm-up matches. Ishaan’s place is confirmed at number four. At the same time, the place of Rishabh Pant at number five is also confirmed, because he played better against Pakistan than other batsmen.
Confirmed for Ravindra Jadeja
Shardul Thakur can get a chance in place of Hardik Pandya at number 6. The big reason behind this is that Hardik Pandya’s performance has been very simple. At the same time, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja will land at number 7. If Jadeja contributes to the team with the bat, then the team will be in a very good rhythm.
Bowling change fixed

Mohammed Shami gave 43 runs in 3.5 overs, Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave 25 runs in 3 overs and Varun Chakraborty gave 33 runs in 4 overs. Virat Kohli replaces Mohammed Shami with veteran off-spinner R.
