Rohit Sharma, K L Rahul, and Ishan Kishan are the three openers in the squad. However, there is a possibility that skipper Virat Kohli might open alongside Rohit.
Earlier, India restricted the Sri Lankans to a modest 262 for nine in their allotted 50 overs thanks to some good work by bowlers Deepak Chahar (2/37), Yuzvendra Chahal (2/52), Kuldeep Yadav 2/48.
Dhawan took 47 balls to score his 46 but played the perfect foil to his opening partner Prithvi Shaw, who scored 82 off 41 balls.
The series is particularly important for the 35-year-old Dhawan, who failed to make an impact in the first T20 in Ahmedabad before warming the benches the remaining two games which India won.
Commenting on how Delhi Capitals’ depth in the spin department can help during the season, the opener said with wickets expected to get slower, the bowlers will come in handy but focus will be on all departments.
Shikhar Dhawan’s reaction is of a proud father as his daughter is doing something for a cause and for a father it is something that gives a reason to be all proud and see their child grow and do things which need to be focused on.
Speaking to IANS, Sanju Samson who has replaced the injured Shikhar Dhawan in the T20I team for the Windies series, said that while he is open to keeping wickets, consistency isn’t something that he loses sleep over.
Pant is yet to be named as replacement for Dhawan as the BCCI is still hopeful that the India opener will recover from his injury in two to three weeks.
