While the Asian giants have been good at chasing, setting and defending totals has been a cause of concern, as conceded by Rohit in the pre-match presser.In the absence of Virat Kohli who has been rested for the T20I series, the onus will be on Rohit Sharma to do the bulk of the scoring.

Shreyas Iyer at No.4 can be a good option.WicketkeeperWhile Rishabh Pant is known for his explosive style, he has struggled to be consistent in the recent past.
