There are reports that Captain Virat Kohli may be the starter. But since Rohit and Rahul are in good shape, Kohli may not be ready for such an experiment. The Rohit-Rahul duo will be India’s first team at the World Cup. Depending on the situation, Kohli can also play the starting role. In that case, Rahul is likely to be in fourth place.

Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav are the backbone of the Indian Middle Order. If both are in good shape, the races will flow. Goalkeeper Rishabh will hit fifth. The all-terrain vehicles Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja will be in the XI of the game.

Jaspreet Bumra will lead the Indian bowling lineup. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be Bumra’s partner as he will be more accurate in death overs. Mohammad Shami will be shot down depending on the situation. Varun Chakraborty and Rahul Chahar will be the spinners. Both were brilliant in the last UAE IPL.
