KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer have been in good form and a home soil advantage will give them a more aggressive spirit to win. Shardul Thakur has been having a poor economy rate and this match will test his improvement.
Possible XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (WK), Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah
