India Predicted Playing 11
V Kohli (c), RG Sharma, S Dhawan, Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni (wk), KM Jadhav, HH Pandya, RA Jadeja, R Ashwin, B Kumar, JJ Burma
Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma seem to be in a race to finish as the tournament’s leading run-scorer with 317 and 304 runs respectively. Dhawan has batted brilliantly in all four games so far and he will be the key to India’s batting. Virat Kohli is also among the runs and the team will want him to continue his good nick. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah have been the standout performers with the ball for India. The former has taken the most wickets for the side and he will be expected to strike early on Sunday.
India’s nine-wicket thrashing of Bangladesh in the semi-final was their fifth win in the seven one-day internationals they have played so far this year. The team’s batting has looked formidable right from the start of the tournament and their bowlers too have done well in restricting sides to modest totals on good batting surfaces.
