Whom will Rohit Sharma give a chance in place of Ravindra Jadeja?

The challenge lies in front of Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid to pick a player as Jadeja’s replacement who has the ability to both bat and score quick runs. The two possible names who are strong contenders to replace Jadeja in India XI for Ind vs Pak Super-4s match are Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel. Among these two, Axar has more chances to get picked in India XI as he is too a left-handed batsman and spinner, and can score some quick runs as well. He also has experience playing IPL in UAE.

Will Rishabh Pant get a chance?

India rested Hardik Pandya in their match against Hong Kong to make way for Rishabh Pant but Pandya will surely return to the team for match against Pakistan on Sunday. If Rishabh Pant is named as Jadeja’s replacement for Ind vs Pak Super-4s match on Sunday one option of batting in team India will be increased, and in such a situation all 20 overs will have to be bowled by three fast bowlers, one spinner, and one all-rounder.
