Will Mayank Agarwal make his ODI debut?
Vijay Shankar’s replacement Mayank Agarwal has already joined the team but KL Rahul, with a couple of fifties, has ensured his place at the top of the order alongside Rohit Sharma, who would be gunning for a fifth World Cup hundred. However, with nothing to lose will we Mayank getting inducted in the PLAYING XI today?
So tempting to give Mayank Agarwal a go in this game. Won’t happen though.#INDVSL

All eyes on Dhoni as India look to solve middle-order crisis
Despite being in a safe spot, the Indian unit will look to solve their middle-order crisis when they take on Sri Lanka in their final league fixture in Leeds on Saturday.
The middle-order has repeatedly failed to fetch quick runs in the death overs and the team has been heavily dependent from their top three, comprising KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, and skipper Virat Kohli.
MS Dhoni has been heavily criticised for his lack of intent and will take the opportunity against Sri Lanka to break the shackles in the death overs. However, the former India skipper will be up against another veteran Lasith Malinga, who will be firing in at the block-hole or bowl his variations of slower deliveries. [PREVIEW]
