In middle-order Team India have the services of Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, and Rishabh Pant. The middle-order looks well set under India’s in-form batsmen. There is nothing much to worry about for the Indian cricket team in that area.
Coming to bowling, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, and Jasprit Bumrah will lead the fast-bowling attack. Adding to that Ravi Ashwin is expected to lead the spin attack for the team. Meanwhile, Mohammed Siraj is expected to emerge as a key bowler for Team India due to his scintillating bowling form in the recent past.
The team management will however have a big selection headache on which player to pick between Ravindra Jadeja and Ravi Ashwin. But, they are expected to go with the latter as his vast experience can be vital for the Indian cricket team in the WTC final
