Middle-order: SKY, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar
Suryakumar Yadav is set to replace Shreyas Iyer in the XI after the latter got ruled out due to back issues. Then, Kishan is likely to come at number five and don the role of a wicketkeeper.
The all-rounder Hardik Pandya was rested from the final ODI against Sri Lanka, but will mark his presence in this game. With Axar unavailable for the entire series, Sundar, who warmed the benches in the Sri Lanka series is likely to replace him.
