Prithvi Shaw’s recent form has forced the management bring him into the squad but he was prefered in the Ranchi game where Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan opened the innings. However, the duo haven’t proven their best yet. So will this opening combination be altered in the Lucknow T20I today?
India went with seven bowling options in the Ranchi T20I with Shivam Mavi and Umran Malik combined bowled only three overs. So, they could include Prithvi Shaw at number three to. bolster the batting with the side having three allrounders in Hardik Pandya, Deepak Hooda, and Washington Sundar. However, the question is will the risk be taken? Or will they bring in Chahal in place of either Shivam Mavi or Umran Malik?
Probable XI: Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Rahul Tripathi, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Shivam Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav, Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh
