Expected Match Lineup of IND vs. BAN: The final match of the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 between India and Bangladesh will be played on September 15. The game will be played in Colombo, where persistent rain is causing disruption. However, the good thing is that this game will have no impact on either Team India or Bangladesh. This means that Team India can definitely do some experiments before the final. So let’s try to understand what will be seen in Team India’s match against Bangladesh and what the playing XI may look like.

There is no possibility of any change in the opening duo of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill.

If we talk about the Indian team’s playing XI in the match against Bangladesh, there is little chance of any tampering in the opening pairing. This means that only Shubman Gill will open the innings along with captain Rohit Sharma. Not only in the Asian Cup finals but also in the World Cup, you will see the same opening pair because both players perform well. Meanwhile, there is news that Shreyas Iyer can make a comeback, he has recovered from his injury and also prepared for it by reaching the training session of the Indian team. Since he lacks match practice after his return, it is possible that he will bat third or fourth in this less important game. Although Virat Kohli has established his dominance in this number, he might get a rest for this game before the finale. But if Shreyas is not fully fit, Kohli will have to play.

It is almost certain that KL Rahul will also play in this game, Surya might get a chance.

KL Rahul scored a brilliant century on his return and bailed out the team by batting well in the deadlocked game against Sri Lanka. So far they have only been able to play two games. It is important that they get fully back into the form for which they are known and recognized before the World Cup. Therefore his place is confirmed. Meanwhile, Suryakumar Yadav can get a chance at number five. Ishan Kishan played consistently and emerged as a match-winner in the middle overs. But Surya’s bat has not spoken in ODI in the way he is known and recognized for. They need some opportunities so that they can crack the ODI formula. There can’t be a better opportunity for them than this game.

One of Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya can rest

In the middle overs, be it batting or bowling. Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya could be the trump cards for the Indian team. Therefore, Team India definitely wants to manage its workload. In such a situation, there is an opportunity to give at least one of them, if not both, a break. Who this player will be will be decided by captain Rohit Sharma, coach Rahul Dravid and the team management. In such a situation, Shardul Thakur could return to the playing eleven again. This means that if Ravindra gives Jadeja rest, Akshar Patel can get a chance.

Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep will definitely play, Mohammed Shami may also get a chance

If we talk about bowling after this, it is almost certain that Kuldeep Yadav and Jasprit Bumrak will play. Because both can be seen in great rhythm. Mohammed Shami, on the other hand, could get a chance in this game in place of Mohammed Siraj. This means that there may be a change in the Indian team’s playing XI. But those players who are in top form and are making a comeback in the Indian team after a few months’ break will get a chance. The rest of the team may look almost the same.

Possible eleven players for Team India against Bangladesh: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wicketkeeper), Suryakumar Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami.
