5 Indian Players Who Need To Step Up In 3rd T20I

After England levelled the series with a commendable performance in the 2nd T20I at Cardiff, it all comes down to the wire in the final game which will be played at Bristol.

Cricket news: These 5 players need to improve their game for India to win

India scored a low score of 148 at Cardiff which the bowlers tried to defend despite the conditions favoured the batsmen.

The opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma needs to make significant contributions to the team’s cause, which is seriously lacking in this series so far.

While Kuldeep Yadav was phenomenal in the first game, Yuzvendra Chahal and Umesh Yadav have done their fair bit. But the management would love to expect more from Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya.

Here is the list of 5 Indian players who need to deliver on Sunday so that India win their maiden T20I series on the English soil.

Suresh Raina

The left-handed batsman works as a link between Virat Kohli at 4 and MS Dhoni at 6. For Raina, number 5 is not a usual position as he played in the top order for Chennai Super Kings. But as KL Rahul is preferred at number 3, Suresh Raina is pushed down the order.

Raina did not get to bat in the first match, thanks to KL Rahul’s heroics, but Raina played a crucial knock in the second match, as he build a 57 runs partnership with Virat Kohli.

That partnership pulled India out of the doldrums and Raina will need to perform well on Sunday. Staying amidst runs will also help him to do well in the ODI series which begins from next Thursday at Trent Bridge.
