India vs Sri Lanka, 3rd ODI: Team India, captained by Rohit Sharma, who clinched the series by winning the first 2 ODIs in Guwahati and Kolkata, will take on Sri Lanka with the aim of a clean sheet in the third ODI at the Greenfield International Stadium today. (January 15). But even before that, a big problem has arisen in front of the captain Rohit Sharma regarding the team selection. In the second ODI, many of the star players had shown a very poor performance.
these players had a sword hanging from them
Shreyas Iyer showed very poor performance in first ODI and second ODI. He could not play big innings for the team. He played 28-28 runs in the first and second matches. In such a situation, captain Rohit Sharma can give Shreyas Iyer a chance in his place. This player can change the attitude of the game in a few balls.
Kuldeep Yadav showed his mettle
Chinese bowler Kuldeep could only play leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal in the second ODI after picking up a minor shoulder injury in the first ODI, but he took three wickets in 51 runs and destroyed Sri Lanka’s batting in the middle overs.
If Chahal regains fitness for the third ODI, India will have a headache whether to feed Chahal or retain Kuldeep, who is cementing his place in the World Cup squad.
Rohit-Virat struck a chord
The first two ODIs were good in preparation for the 2023 ODI World Cup in India in October-November. Rohit, Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli showed good form with the bat in the first ODI in Guwahati. At the same time, KL Rahul, who landed at number five, had batted brilliantly.
In bowling, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammad Siraj and Umran Malik have troubled the Sri Lankan batsmen with impressive performances. Siraj has been impressive early on, taking wickets while Malik has been ticking over in the middle overs, but India would like Malik to bowl with more control.
