India Vs South: Team India is on the defensive in the five match T20 series against South Africa. The Indian team lost both T20s before and now it has become a challenge for them to stay in the series. Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar, however, wants to see Umran Malik make his debut in the third T20 match. Gavaskar has said that after Sachin Tendulkar, Umran Malik is the only player who has impressed him the most.
<p style="text alignment: justify;"Sunil Gavaskar said: "The last time I was so excited for a player it was Sachin Tendulkar. I am equally excited about Umran Malik. I think he should play. But he will say let's win the third T20 first. He would like to go to the position of the first experiment Much will also depend on the tone.''
Bowling can change
Sunil Gavaskar sees bowling as the key theme of the loss in the first two T20Is. The former cricketer said: “Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been brilliant. He has bowled well. But other players have failed to take wickets. Apart from Bhuvi and Chahal, you don’t have a wicket-taker. There can’t be that much pressure. Bhuvi he’s getting the ball moving. Not being able to defend a score of 211 says a lot.”
<p style="text alignment: justify;"However, to stay in the series, Team India will have to win the third T20 match in any case. In such a situation, in the third match of T20, the Indian team may make one or two changes. There doesn't seem to be any change in the hitting department at the moment. However, the Indian team may give Umran Malik or Arshdeep Singh a chance to debut.
