On a spin-friendly Lucknow track in the second game, India managed to eke out a six-wicket win with only one ball to spare although they were only chasing 100 runs to win. The match also witnessed an unwanted record as both sides failed to hit even a single six throughout the content.
Fans and both the sides will be hoping for a much better track in the third ODI at the Narendra Modi Stadium which has traditionally seen plenty of runs from the bat. India didn’t get off to the best of starts in the series at Ranchi, losing the first game by 21 runs as they failed to chase down 177 runs to win.
The major cause of concern for the Indian side will be the form of the openers Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan, who have failed to fire in the T20I series. Gill was the ‘man in form’ with a record of 360 runs in three ODI games against the New Zealand in the series before this one.
There will be tough fight for places between Prithvi Shaw, Shubman Gill and even Ishan Kishan. Kishan and Gill have not been in best T20 form and Shaw in the squad, Hardik and Dravid could be tempted to bring a change in the playing 11. Shaw playing will give India a fresh opening pair and because the Mumbai batter is hungry for international runs, he may give just the perfect start for India in the 3rd T20 with the bat. Let’s see what happens at the toss.
