will pick Shami over Bhuvi. Shami can get you a wicket out of nowhere while the spinners choke runs. Should bowl with older ball and not new. I have 6 bowlers to cover up for bad day so go all attacking. Batting won’t do Jack here. Tuk tuk away, get enough and go all out attack with the ball.

If KL and Hitman open, there will be tuk tuk cautious start after Pakistan, nothing can be more surer. Kohli will even worsen this situation when he comes in.

 

India will NOT get off to a flyer if they bat first.

 

Similarly if chasing, they might convince themselves that better to have wickets in hand when the dew sets in.

^^Pakistanis made sure Shami will be picjed with all the abuses on his IG and all wokes posting with #IStandWithShami

But why drop SKY? He can be the floater we need

 

If history is any guide, Kohli is very capable of going in with an unchanged lineup to prove a point. He could well double down.

 

By beating NZ, he can claim his team selection and tactics was correct all along. The result against Pakistan was just an off day result.

 

3 changes I would make, Thakur for Bhuvi, Ash for VC, Kishan for Pandya.

 

However,  I can only see one of these happening. In fact it wouldnt surprise me if Thakur comes in for VC as the only change.

It would be a miracle to win a tournament with Rohit-Kohli playing in the top 3 :dontknow:

 

Below are SRs of batsmen batting in the top 3 v major teams since 2017 when they score less than 50, which is most of the time:
