The three-match ODI series (ODI Series) is going on between (IND vs SL). Team India has won the series 2-0 by winning 2 consecutive matches. The third match on 23 July was played by R. To be played at Premadasa Stadium. In such a situation, by any means, Sri Lanka would like to avoid causing trouble by winning a match.
Whereas the Indian team will go into the third match with the intention of cleaning the hosts 3-0. But, with some changes in the playing 11 of the third ODI, the Indian team can land. In this special report, we are going to talk about the same 3 big changes, which can be seen in the playing XI of the Indian team against Sri Lanka in the third ODI.
1. Devdutt Padikkal
First and foremost, if we talk about the big change, then captain Shikhar Dhawan can be seen sitting on the bench outside the playing 11 of the third ODI. The new captain and opener of the Indian team has got a chance to prove himself in the first two matches. He played an excellent and responsible captaincy innings in the first match. However, in the second match too, he remained from one side. But, playing a long innings, he missed the place when the team needed him the most.
In the second ODI, Dhawan played an innings of 29 runs while facing 38 balls. In such a situation, there is a possibility that in the third match, Devdutt Padikkal can be tried as an opener instead of the captain. He was also seen in tremendous form in IPL.
The special thing is that India has won the series 2-0. In such a situation, in the last match, the team management can give a chance to the young batsman Devdutt Padikkal sitting on the bench to debut in the playing 11 of Team India instead of Shikhar Dhawan. A big reason for this can also be the upcoming T20 World Cup.
