India vs Bangladesh, World Cup highlights: As it happened
So, it's settled then. There's just two teams fighting for the top 4. We could get a clearer picture tomorrow when England host New Zealand at Chester-le-Street.
And just like that, India became the second team after Australia to qualify into the semi finals—the sixth time in total. Don’t steal the thunder from the Bangladesh’s lower-order batsman, though. They kept Bangladesh in the hunt, and gave India a big time scare. Until it was Bumrah, of course, at his very best doing the saving. Back to back Yorkers last up meant India didn’t have to bowl Shami in a tricky 50th over.
Earlier, Rohit left a rubble of records as he marched on towards his fourth hundred in the tournament. For one, he trumped Warner to become the leading scorer in the tournament. KL Rahul and Kohli played their part as well, and together the top-order laid a solid foundation. But the middle order yet again couldn’t rise up to the occasion: India scored just 63 runs in the last 10 overs, with Dhoni scoring just a run-a-ball.
If you ever wanted to underline the benefit of advanced stats, MS Dhoni has an average batting impact of -10 runs per match in his last two innings (-9 v England & -11 v Bangladesh). #CWC19 https://t.co/ZMC02Qa0Nk— Freddie Wilde (@fwildecricket) July 2, 2019
Mustafizur's and Shakib’s heroics went into vain as India won by 28 runs. A fifer and a valiant all-round performance will go down into a losing cause. Bangladesh become the fifth team after Afghanistan, South Africa, West Indies, and Sri Lanka to be knocked out of the tournament. But what a World Cup Shakib is having: he scored 500 runs and took 11 wickets. No other player has even scored 400 and taken 10+ wickets.
It's England vs New Zealand tomorrow. And now that there are three teams fighting for two spots, this match could really offer some perpective. A win for England means Pakistan would need to win their match against Bangladesh (on Friday) by a huge margin to better their run rate over the Kiwis. A win for New Zealand could give a real chance to Pakistan, who would just need to defeat Bangladesh, to spoil the hosts' party. See you tomorrow!
And they walk off with a smile!
BANG BANG GOES BUMRAH!
That's two in two. Two perfect yorkers on the trot. Bumrah, the world's best, shows once again why!
Fifty for Saifuddin!
What a way to bring up your fifty--and what an occassion! Saifuddin has really brought Bangladesh into the game when it all seemed over with the wicket of Shakib al-Hasan. A well deserved fifty! Can he carry his side home?
The fight goes on!
Eight runs from the 46th over. Bangladesh require 43 runs from 24 balls.
Third ball off the 47th over, and Saifuddin backs away and strikes a terrific shot down the long leg for a four. Shami came back well after that bowling quick yorkers right on the money.
They require 36 runs in 18 balls. Possible?
Bangladesh require 51 runs off 30 balls. Can Saifuddin pull off one of the greatest chases ever?
SIX and OUT!
That's the story of Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza. He smacked first ball from Bhuvi high and straight for a six. The next ball, he goes for another smack but perishes to a leg cutter, outside edge into Dhoni's gloves.
Bum Bum BUMRAH!
You can caveat it as much as you want, but the truth of the matter is hard to ignore - Jasprit Bumrah is on his way to being one of the great death bowlers of all time.— Ben Jones (@benjonescricket) June 30, 2019
A @CricViz analysis, in awe of the most valuable bowler in the world.
???? https://t.co/BEzRdYbSNE pic.twitter.com/e1gv59L9AB
Jasprit Bumrah is back and how! Bumrah has cleaned up Shabbir Rahman, the change of pace doing the trick. But man, has he put up a fight! Bhuvi put up the pressure from the other end, conceding just 5 runs. Bumrah darts in and gets his man. If playing Bhuvi and Shami together was Kohli's way of choosing the either, he knows well who to go for. Bhuvi-Bumrah hunt in pair, and are arguably the best death over bowlers.
Shami leaks yet again
Shami conceded 44 off the last three overs in the last match against England. And he’s given 28 runs already in his last two overs. This game is still not over yet. These two are putting up a heck of a fight--something India should have done against England!
The need for better metrics!
17 runs from Shami's over
And Shami is leaking runs once again later down the innings. He has been smashed four boundaries in the 38th over. The required run rate has dropped down under 9 after that over. This is the last batting attack from Bangladesh, and they are putting up a fight here.
Next over from Chahal, and even he has been swept for a couple of fours. How much gas do these two have? The current partnership is of 40 runs from 5.1 overs. Meanwhile, good news for India: Bumrah is back on the field.
The required run rate has now gone up to 9.53. Bangladesh require another 124 runs from 13 overs with 4 wickets remaining.
Oh dear, Bumrah is down!
Bumrah puts up a dive as he looks to save a boundary. He has to leave the field. he's tugging gingerly at his right shoulder, but he seems fine. Looks precautionary, really! And for the umpteenth time, Jadeja jogs in to field!
There, have a good laugh!
Shakib is done by a change of pace
The change of pace combined with slowness of the pitch foxes yet another Bangladesh batsman. Shakib al-Hasan is the man to depart--and with goes their hope to clinch this match. An offcutter from Hardik followed Shakib on the middle and leg stump; the ball balloons off his bat to Karthik at extra cover who takes a sitter, really. That's wicket number 3 for Pandya.
Another one bites the dust!
A genuine off cutter from Bumrah does Mosaddek Hossain. He has dragged this one on his stumps--another batsman sent packing in a similar fashion after Tamim Iqbal. Bangladesh are five down at the score of 173 in 32.2 overs. Bumrah gets his man, and once again, Shakib watches his partner succumb to the slowness of the pitch.
Bangladesh require 146 runs from 114 balls with 6 wickets reamining. 7.68 is the required run rate.
WICKET! Litton Das departs
Oh, how things change here. Smashed for a six and Bangladesh's hope were up; the second ball after that, Litton Das loses his wicket. The short ball does the trick! Quick, too. Excellent bowling from Pandya to deny a powerful looking partnership between Das and Shakib. And with that wicket, Bangladesh's chances look slim. Kohli is pumped as Shakib watches painfully from the other end.
Fifty for Shakib
Another fifty for the sensational Shakib al-Hasan. He is unstoppable this World Cup. How good is he, and how much does Bangladesh depend on him! Roughly 8 per cent of all the runs Bangladesh have ever scored in a World Cup have been scored by Shakib Al Hasan, in this World Cup.
Chance of a run out, and Shakib puts in a valiant dive to save himself. India celebrate but the TV-replay from the third umpire cuts that short. Bangladesh still in the hunt with Shakib playing another gem of an innings.
26 overs, Ban 133/3
Bangladesh require 182 runs from 24 overs to stay alive in this tournament. They can't afford to lose here. A lot depends on Shakib al-Hasan who is batting on 43 (53). Also, this partnership with Litton Das is going to be very crucial for Bangladesh's chase. They chased 300+ total in this World Cup against Windies. If India can break this partnership, then it's game over for Bangladesh!
Chahal strikes. He will be relieved. Finally a wicket after 15.5 overs at Edgbaston. Tossed up, and Mushfiqur Rahim goes for a routine sweep. But he can't keep that down! It goes straight to Mohammad Shami at midwicket, who comes in to bowl the next over. Big wicket this for India to have plucked at this stage, just as the partnership was approaching fifty!
Shakib-Rahim key for Bangladesh
This partnership is already flourishing! Bangladesh are going for it. They're not gonna wait until the final 20 overs to really get the chase going. This partnership is already of 25 runs from 24 balls. Rahim and Shakib have a history of putting together big stands in ODIs and Bangladesh will need the same from them here. They're having a dream World Cup, these two; Bangladesh depends on both of them big time.
Shakib becomes the first player to score 500 runs and take 10 wickets in a single World Cup. No one else has even managed 400 runs and 10 wickets!
WICKET. Straight to Virat Kohli!
Soumya Sarkar is devastated. He had all the time to play it anywhere and he had to hit that half-tracker straight to Virat Kohli at extra cover! He can't believe it. He's been done by arguably the worst delivery of the match. Short and alow and wide angled across on sixth stump and going wider. A sitter really for the Indian captain and he pouches it with relative ease.
Shakib averages 58 at number 3
For the most part of his career, Shakib al-Hasan had been batting down the order at number 5 and 6. In the 21 innings that he has batted at number 3, Shakib has scored 1,047 runs at an average of 58.17; not to mention, two centuries and nine fifties.
He has started strong here against India as well. He has got the temperament to stay long and has the experience to chase this total down. Meanwhile, Dhoni is back on field after an over.
Pant replaces Dhoni as wicketkeeper
That's the benefit of having three wicketkeepers in the playing XI, one must conjure! Rishabh Pant is now keeping for India with Dhoni having gone off.
Straightaway, there's a huge shout for the LBW, but the umpire don't seem convinced. Shami prods Kohli to take the review. He thinks about it, and takes it. Third umpire Aleem Dar deems there has in fact been an inside edge and doesn't even proceed past Ultraedge onto ball-tracking. Kohli is furious! He is seen arguing with the umpire Marais Erasmus on field.
The post-DRS TV replays with balltracking show it would have been umpire's call clipping the outside of leg stump. The reason why Kohli was agitated: India have lost their review. Had it been based on ball tracking evidence, India would still have it.
Ah, that's brilliant! Shami with the breakthrough once again. What a World Cup he's having! Big, big wicket, this. The dangerous looking Tamim Iqbal is bowled. Shami pitches it further up and gets the wicket. Inside edge, into the stumps. That's wicket number 14 for Mohammad Shami. India survive the 2007 heroics from the left-hander!
Shakib, the magificent, walks in!
Shami comes into attack
13 wickets in three matches in this World Cup already for Shami. He has picked four or more wickets in all the three matches. He concedes a boundary first over.
Both the Bangladesh's openers, meanwhile, are playing their shots positively. They've given their team a good start, one that becomes very crucial when you're chasing 300+ total.
Bumrah bowls a 150kmph
It was fast and imperious! Bumrah has clocked 150. Really short, this one. And Dhoni does well to get his gloves to it. Just a single byes given. Earlier this over, Tamim scampered just about home as Hardik Pandya has a shy at the stumps. The ball missed the stumps and went to the boundary line with no one really backing that throw.
Bangladesh 28/0 after 7 overs.
Two fours and a maiden!
Tamim is off in some style, taking on Jasprit Bumrah in his first over. Flicks one towards mid-wicket for his first boundary before driving nicely through the covers. More of this is needed. Imperious that!
They take eight runs off Bumrah's first over and then, he comes back strongly to bowl a maiden over. Bangladesh now 18/0 after 5 overs.
The story so far
Rohit Sharma gave India the best start so far in this World Cup. He went on to hit his fourth century of the tournament but only after being dropped early on—almost a copycat of the game against England on the same pitch a coupla days back. But once this highest opening stand was over, India kept losing wickets at regular intervals and finished at least 30-40 runs short. Mustafizur came back strongly in his next spell and dismissed Kohli and Pandya in the same over. He finished things off great as well, taking three more wickets for just six runs in his final two overs at the death.
It’s a used Edgbaston pitch, and there’s a definite sign of wear and tear. This score (315) won’t be an easy chase for Bangladesh. But have India missed the trick of not playing Kuldeep? We’ll know soon enough.
180-0 (29.1 ov) @ R/o 6.17
134-9 (20.5 ov) @ R/o 6.43
Dhoni--ain't a finisher no more?
MS Dhoni is an ODI great, and for a decade was the best finisher - he's not now. True Run Rate compares a player's scoring rate to the average for the phase of the game when they bat. Dhoni was always better than the average - for the last 5 years, he's always been worse. #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/5E0vOTkAbX— The CricViz Analyst (@cricvizanalyst) July 2, 2019
Three wickets off the last over!
Brilliant bowling from Fizz and Dhoni has to go. He decides not to take a single and give strike to a competent Bhuvi off the first two balls. Third ball, Dhoni decides to go big off the short ball but is beaten for pace. Shakib pouches this skier with ease.
Penultimate ball, Bhuvi misses and goes for a suicidal run. OUT! Shami is on strike the last ball. Looks to go big, but drags it onto his stump. That's five for Fizz! What an exceptional bowling this!
No glory for Karthik
Fizz comes in and strikes second ball of the 48th over. How good is Mustafizur in the end! A slower offcutter bouncer that swallows up Karthik. He tries to muscle a pull over the ring but ends up lobbing up a catch at midwicket. Just three runs from the 48th over. Brilliant in end, as always.
India 300/6 after 48 overs.
19 runs from last two
The 46th and the 47th over have gone for 9 and 10 runs respectively. Karthik and Dhoni look all set at the crease and would be looking to exploit the last three overs. Alright, Fizz comes in.
Shakib al-Hasan, take a bow!
OUT! Pant departs
He decided to go against Shakib al-Hasan. Others would have seen him through, but not Pant. That's his style of play, and he's in the team because of that. But Shakib has been sensational: he has given just 41 runs in a match that has been dominated by India. An incredible performance yet again from him!
Having a good day, are we?
Rishabh Pant currently has the highest boundary percentage of any Indian today, and the lowest dot-ball percentage. Staying busy, but scoring quickly.
Rishabh Pant has played 67 attacking shots in ODIs, and they have scored at 11.55rpo. Since the 2015WC, 238 batsmen have played more attacking shots than Pant, but only three of those men (B McCullum, Gayle, and J Hastings) have scored quicker with their attacking shots. #CWC19— The CricViz Analyst (@cricvizanalyst) July 2, 2019
Three runs from 43rd over. Excellent bowling from Shakib al-Hasan to contain Pant and Dhoni.
14 from 41st & 42nd
A brilliant 41st over from Shakib means India can get only 4 runs. Rishabh Pant steps across and plays a crouching front foot pull off Fizz's first ball to bring a cracking boundary for India. But he pulled back things well, but India will take 10 runs from that over. India are 265/4 after 42 overs.
Three back-to-back boundaries
Rishabh Pant is no batsman to play a subdued innings. Three boundaries on the trot from the next over after India lost Kohli and Pandya, only Pant can do it. And just like that, he has shifted the pressure back on the Bangladesh--not to mention, taken pressure off the new man, MS Dhoni. It would be interesting how he approaches his game. He came under a lot of criticism the way he chased against England in the last match. New day, new game!
OUT! Fizz gets Kohli, Pandya in a single over
It's a short delivery, and Kohli has pulled it straight at the throat of the midwicket. He fails to make it six consecutive 50s. He was aiming at that short boundary, but that cutter from Fizz did the trick.
Oh, Pandya is out as well! Brilliant bowling this from Mustafizur. Mashrafe wants wickets out of Mustafizur in this situation, and how well has he delivered! Bangladesh come roaring back in this game.
Kohli, Pant up the ante
A superb dismissive whip through midwicket from Kohli, and a well-timed kinda paddle shot from Pant. That off Bangladesh's best bowler of the tournament: Shakib al-Hasan. India take 10 runs from that over and are cruising well for a formidabe total.
The first ball of the next over is a trademark fall-away sweep over fine leg from Pant: that's always gonna be a four! India are 237/2 from 38 overs.
That's first SIX for Rishabh Pant!
No, India are not doing an England. Yes, they got off to a splendid, then lost wickets between 30-40 overs in a similar fashion. But Rishabh Pant is in no mood to just nudge the ball around. He comes down the wicket and goes through with the full flow of the blade for a massive six. This is going to be interesting: Kohli playing the anchor, and batsmen run amok from the other end?
India are 211/2 after 35 overs. How much more can they get?
OUT! Rahul is gone
No century for KL Rahul. He weathered the not-so threatening Bangladesh's bowling but was increasingly finding it difficult to put them away. Now he decided to go cheeky, to slash the ball fine towards the first slip, but ended up edging it to Mushfiqur Rahim. Not a great day for him, but he'll take the runs. Sums up the day really, he was always finding the fielders.
Rishabh Pant walks in at number 4.
OUT! Rohit departs after hitting a ton
Another dropped catch, another hundred. That's Rohit Sharma's third consecutive 100--and the fourth in this World Cup. Nobody has hot more hundreds in a World Cup. And just like that, he departs once again trying to accelerate soon after that hundred on the same pitch. And it's Soumya Sarkar again with his golden arm.
Bangladesh pull back things a bit
Bangla bowlers--Rubel Hossain, Soumya Sarkar, and Shakib al-Hasan--have kept things quiet here after Rohit Sharma moved into the 90s. Conceded just 15 runs from the last four overs. Rahul is having a tough time out in the middle. He seems to be preoccupied by his own form of late, and is finding it increasingly difficult to free himself.
India are absolutely on top here, but the two men in the middle are quite the contrast. Both Rahul and Rohit are playing 36% attacking strokes, but while the latter is flying at 7.01rpo, the former is struggling at 5.04rpo. Rahul is not playing fluently. #CWC19— The CricViz Analyst (@cricvizanalyst) July 2, 2019
India are 170/0 after 28 overs.
Another feather in his cap--err, helmet?
Rohit Sharma has now passed MS Dhoni for most sixes all-time by an Indian batsman in ODIs. He has smoked 230 of 'em now, and is fourth all-time highest behind Sanath Jayasuriya (270), Chris Gayle (326), and Shahid Afridi (351).
Rohit trumps Warner to be the highest scorer this WC
Bangladesh's spinners are definitely bowling better than their pacers; or, is the pitch playing that way. Never mind, Rohit has gone all out here. Brought out his iron claws and smkes the ball sky-high over long on for a six; a four off the last ball and that's 13 runs from Mosaddek's over. Just so you know: he is averaging 186+ in this World Cup.
He muscles another pull high over wide long-on and become the leading scorer in the 2019 World Cup. Another over, another six; he is just 12 runs short of his century.
Still got at least two-(and-a-half) matches left!
100 comes up for India
Indian openers have showed real 'intent' in this match. Rahul has been cautious, but Rohit has looked to play his shots from the very start of the game. Perhaps, the last failed chase against England had something to do with the changed approach?
Rubel Hossain comes it at the end of 18 overs, and KL welcomes him with a boundary. A couple of runs the next ball and Rahul brings up his fifty as well. How comforting this landmark would be for him! He desperately needed this fifty. India are in the driver's seat now, and they would look to go past 350.
12 runs from Rubel's first over. India are 117/0 after 19 overs.
Rahul gets going
Finally, Rahul breaks the shackles. After getting a beating in the first Powerplay, Mashrafe got Mushfiqur to stand up to the wicket. That restricted Rahul from using his feet--and hence, the flow of runs halted. And then just like that, he gets a good hold of the short one and swings it towards wid long on for a six. The next ball he times it perfectly for a three. Is that the opening he was looking for?
Fifty for Rohit Sharma!
India are in a comfortable position here. But after the end of the first Powerplay, Bangladesh haven't conceded many: just 9 runs off the next four overs. Shakib al-Hasan is bowling magnificiently; and that has inspired his captain Mashrafe to bowl tighter lengths as well.
But the pressure was rising up. And we all know what happens, then: Rohit goes for a biggie and clears the short boundary at midwicket. He drives the second next ball for a single and brings up his fifty. Early life, but he has been quite superb since! He is averaging 186 against spin in this World Cup.
69 from the first Powerplay
That's the maximum India has scored in the first 10 overs in this World Cup. And since the 2015 World Cup, this is India's fourth highest in the first Powerplay.
India have had a much better start today than they did on Sunday. After 10 overs against England, they were just 28-1, but for that you have to give England credit. They bowled very tight lines (63% in the channel compared to 45% for Bangladesh today) and built pressure. #CWC19— The CricViz Analyst (@cricvizanalyst) July 2, 2019
Rohit Sharma, take a bow!
Rohit Sharma has now passed Rahul Dravid's run total from the 1999 World Cup. Only Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly have more runs in a World Cup than Rohit does in 2019, for any Indian batsman. #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/QxiMJDbzRA— The CricViz Analyst (@cricvizanalyst) July 2, 2019
He's now passed Ganguly. The only Indian to make more runs in a World Cup than Rohit Sharma is the master blaster Sachin Tendulkar.
That's 11 from the over!
And this time, it's KL Rahul. Back-to-back boundaries for him. The first one from a poor Saifuddin delivery angling down the leg side; the second one, a glorious cover drive--the kind of shot that reaffirms your faith in Rahul.
And as I write this, Rohit Sharma has played a sizzling drive through extra cover for a boundary to bring up India's 50. It's a no ball, and Sharma hots another boundary off Mustafizur through backward point.
Why would you do that?
Rohit Sharma has been dropped five times in this World Cup. No batsman has been dropped more often.
Mustafziur Rahman has dismissed a right-hander six times in this World Cup. Five times that wicket has come from an in-swinger, and once from a ball which went straight with no swing. None of this RHB wickets have come with away-swingers. #CWC19— The CricViz Analyst (@cricvizanalyst) July 2, 2019
He would just have made it seven!
DROPPED! Rohit survives
Rohit Sharma was dropped early on in second slip by Joe Root in the last match. He went on to score a century on the same pitch. Two days after, he has been dropped again on the square leg by Tamim Iqbal. Doesn't get the elevation, nor the timing. He was eyeing for the shorter boundary. Meanhwile, Mustafizur is devastated.
The next over he smoked the ball on fourth stump into the stands. He is looking to make a statement here!
Can India exploit this weakness?
Before this game started, Bangladesh has had the worst average in the 1st Pwerplay in this World Cup. Four wickets at 76.50--a wicket every 90 balls. Three overs in this game, and the boys in green have treaded the same path--Saifuddin, Mustafizur and Mashrafe haven't really looked menacing.
India up and running
KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma walk in to bat. Rohit is in a sensational form. Three hundreds and counting. Rahul, on the other hand, might look to weather the first Powerplay. It hasn't been a perfect campaign for him so far, and how he'd like to change that. Is he going to target the shorter boundary?
Alright, first ball. 123kmph from the captain Mashrafe Mortaza and Rahul defends it easily. He nudges the second ball to the on side and takes a single. India are up and running. Both the Indian openers would look to change the way the've batted in the first Powerplay. ANd they do: Rohit shows once again why he's arguably the best puller. Smashes the short ball for a six.
10 runs from the 1st over.
When Bangladesh choked!
Over the next two years, there were a couple more close matches against India where they choked too. The Nidahas Trophy in March 2018 was almost in their hands before Dinesh Karthik brutally snatched it away in the last over. The Asia Cup in the same year went into the last ball too, with India once again emerging on the right side of the result.
Fair call, eh?
Only five players in history have more wickets at a better strike rate than Kuldeep Yadav in ODI cricket. He initially struggled on Sunday, before his last six over went for just 26 runs. It's an enormous decision to leave him out. #CWC19— The CricViz Analyst (@cricvizanalyst) July 2, 2019
It's also an interesting choice given the way Chahal and Kuldeep have gone against Bangladesh in the past. Both have bowled in two innings, Kuldeep taking three wickets at 26, Chahal taking one wicket at 71
Two changes for Bangladesh
Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaja announces a coupla changes, too. Mehidy Hasan is out for Rubel Hossain. Mahmudullah, who has not passed a fitness test on his calf tear, makes way for Sabbir Rahman.
Bangladesh Playing XI: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Liton Das, Mosaddek Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman
India bat first; Bhuvi, Karthik in
Virat Kohli calls heads. And it is... heads! India will bat first. Kohli announces a couple of changes: Kuldeep Yadav is out for Bhuvneshwar Kumar--which, he says is because of the short boundary (59m) on one side--and Dinesh Karthik in for Kedar Jadhav.
India Playing XI: KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli(c), Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni(w), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah
It's the same Edgbaston pitch where India lost to England by 31 runs a coupla days ago. From Birmingham end, 59m boundary square on the leg-side (for a right-hander). Looks very interesting. There's a lot of patches; dried patches. There are footmarks just outside the off-stump for a left-hander. The surface will bring spinners into play. A good toss to win, the team winning it will want to bat.
All eyes on Shakib al-Hasan
Shakib al Hasan is having one of the great World Cup campaigns. Nobody in the tournament's history has exceeded both his runs and his wickets tally from this World Cup in a single campaign.
India will be desperate to stop Shakib al Hasan today. He's been in brilliant form, but India can take heart from his career record--he averages just 30 against in-swinging deliveries. If Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar or Shami can get the ball coming back in, they have a chance.
India's selection dilemma
With Jadhav unable to produce the required speed gear, should reserve keeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik or bowling all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja get a chance? Also, Rahul's fitness problem might give way to Mayank Agarwal, who was only yesterday announed as a replacement for an injured Vijay Shankar.
