After a disappointing ODI series in Australia, where India lost to the hosts 1-4, the Men-in-Blue will be hoping to turn things in their familiar format -- the T20s. With ever favorites of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan in good form to keep top order firm, there are some watchable players in the series who may have a good impact.
Here we take a look at those players:
Suresh Raina: This will be a big opportunity for him to retain his place in the ODI. The format being his favourite, ability to roll arms for some time and being a great fielder, he is likely to start ahead of classy Ajinkya Rahane. Performance in domestic tournaments will boost his confidence
Yuvraj Singh: Finally the India's ever favourite will be wearing blue jersey again. With the form back, he may send the opposition bowlers on leather hunt. The most impactful player on big stages will have big expectations when he walks into the field.
Ashish Nehra: Unplayable when he gets going, Nehra got a call to represent India despite age not being on his side. He has the hunger to perform. After fine IPL performances, he will be back after five long years. His death-over Yorkers are certainly going to be weapon against Australians.
Jasprit Bumrah: After a good ODI debut, the Mumbai Indians player will hope to climb the reach next steps of his career. He has a chance to cement his place in the struggling Indian bowling unit. The Australian batsmen will take time to read his weird action and that may give him some advantage.
