India- Another defeat but a lot of positives still to take from it but a hell lot of problems to counter as well. While Rohit & Shikhar came back to form with a 193 odd opening stand, also Vijay Shankar showed some good signs with the bat down the order. Whereas Kedar, Rishab, Rohit, Shikhar were too bad in field. The team will definitely look to give Rohit rest as he looked too tired and was really bad in the field, they may be tempted to bring Ravindra Jadeja into the side because of slow nature of the pitch with Vijay Shankar promoted to no. 4 in Delhi ODI.

Playing XI: Shikhar Dhawan, KL.Rahul, Virat Kohli(C), Vijay Shankar, Rishab Pant(Wk), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah
