FREE CRICKET BETTING TIPS
Virat Kohli has opened the batting for India in T20s but will gladly stay at No.3 when Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan reunite. That means, KL Rahul, who opened in the one-off T20I in Sri Lanka, might miss out. India had a chance to sink their teeth into format with the ball when they smartly defended a target in an rain-hit 21-over clash in Chennai, but will need a strong sixth-bowling option while bowling with just the one ball. Nehra’s inclusion will add greater meat to the bowling attack and leave a bulk of Bumrah’s 24 deliveries for the death. However, India could still play all three of Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav – as they did in Colombo – if the pitch is receptive to spin and if they decide to bench the streetwise Kedar Jadhav.
Probable XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav/ Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal/Ashish Nehra
Probable XI: David Warner (c), Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell, Travis Head, Moises Henriques, Dan Christian, Tim Paine (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jason Behrendorff, Andrew Tye/Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa
