IND Playing XI: Shubman Gill scored a magnificent 208 as India sealed a nervy 12-run win on Wednesday. The 23-year-old became the youngest to score a double century in ODI cricket. He thus has shut the opening debate and will open the batting with Rohit Sharma.

Virat Kohli missed out on a big score in Hyderabad but will be itching to get his record straight in Raipur. With KL Rahul on leave and Shreyas Iyer ruled out, India have few options to tinker in their batting order. Ishan Kishan struggled at No.4 in the last game, but will be backed to continue the role.

Suryakumar Yadav chipped in with a  quick-fire cameo, but failed to make it a huge score. The World No.1 T20I batter has a mediocre 50-over record, and will be keen to overturn the same.

Hardik Pandya and Washington Sundar will fill in as all-rounders. The former had a day to forget with the ball, but is undroppable from the set up. Sundar was impressive with the ball and will keep Shahbaz Ahmed on the bench.

Mohammed Siraj continues to impress and the fast bowler was once again at his best. The 28-year-old picked up four wickets in his home ground Hyderabad and is India’s enforcer in chief. Mohammad Shami survived an injury scare, to bow, out his quota of overs. He will continue to spearhead the attack.

Shardul Thakur struggled on his return to the team but held his nerve in the final over. With Umran Malik available, Rohit Sharma could bring back the J&K star back into the side. Kuldeep Yadav has been immense since his return and will continue to start over Yuzvendra Chahal.
