New Delhi: The third and decisive match of the three-match T20 International series between India and Australia will be played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. In this match, Team India captain Rohit Sharma can once again make changes in the playing XI. The second match of the series was played in Nagpur. The rain-interrupted match was just 8-8 overs, where India won by 6 wickets. Due to the lack of overs, Rohit Sharma played one bowler less in this match and gave Rishabh Pant a place in the playing XI, but in Hyderabad, Rohit may once again go into the match with 5 bowlers.
In the Nagpur T20, Team India came out with four bowlers in the form of Jaspreet Bumrah, Harshal Patel, Akshar Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal. At the same time, Hardik Pandya plays the role of an all-rounder in the team. Rohit Sharma would not like to take risks in this decisive match and his effort will be to go on the field with a total of 6 bowlers including Hardik Pandya. If he plays an extra bowler, Rishabh Pant may have to sit out of the team.
In fact, as the third fast bowler, India has two options in the form of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahar. Although Umesh Yadav is also part of the Indian contingent, he is not in the T20 World Cup squad, due to which Rohit will think of giving a chance to Bhuvi or Chahar. Deepak Chahar will play the T20 World Cup as a reserve player. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was given a chance in the first T20 match against Australia in the Asia Cup 2022. In such a situation, Rohit would like Deepak Chahar to get a chance to practice a bit before the World Cup.
India's Probable Playing XI- Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar/Deepak Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal
