Team India Playing XI Twenty20 Match Against Sri Lanka
Team India has won the ODI series from Sri Lanka but Twenty20 in the month of September is now in the eyes of Captain Kohli. Kohli knows that the record of Twenty20 is not the good of the team right now. Former captain Dhoni also wanted to improve his record of Twenty20 but he did not succeed in it.
Twenty-20 has been the weakness of the team since the last few months. This is the cause that Kohli wants to make a good start by winning Twenty-20 at any cost to Sri Lanka. So let us tell you that Kohli inside the only Twenty-20 can come up with which team.
Lokesh Rahul or Rohit Sharma
Lokesh Rahul can be given a chance to open in Twenty20 against Srlanka. Well Rahul’s record is very good in twenty-20. So hopefully Rahul will get the chance to play in the opening with sikhar dhawan. Rohit Sharma also performs very well in the ODI Series against Srilanka. In 3rd ODI match he scored a century when the team needs. The vice captain can be kept out for the middle order or Rohit Sharma can also open in T20.
Without Dhawan the team can hardly get to the ground. The way he plays Dhawan will open the T20 innings against SriLanka.
Kohli has been coming to open in Twenty20 for some time now but maybe Kohli will come third on the team to build a perfect and balanced team.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni
Dhoni plans to be placed in fifth place in the batting order. Dhoni, on the other hand looks good on the same number. So he will play at number fifth.
Kedar Jadhav or Manish Pandey
Kedar Jadhav has not yet been seen doing something special on the Sri Lankan tour but he will definitely get the chance in twenty-20. Manish Pandey has returned after a long time. Maybe Manish can be given a chance to play in Twenty20 at number five.
Pandya was born for Twenty20 only. Right now the good all-rounder of Team India is probably not with Team India.
Kuldeep Yadav or Axar Patel
Certainly Kuldeep Yadav is expected to get a place in the Twenty20 match. In this game of limited overs, Yadav is a good spinner. Patel is also doing well he can bowl and bat both so Captain Kohli would definitely like to go to the ground with Patel.
The bowlers of fast bowling are still going to take on Bhuvneshwar. Better than Bhuvneshwar Kumar there is no fast bowler in the team. So he will play in T20 match against SriLanka.
Bumrah is blowing very well on this tour for the team. This exclusive Twenty20 bowler is sure to get a place in the team. So with some such team, Kohli can only go in Twenty20. Anyway, this team is still looking at the best team.
