Islamabad crashed out without reaching the knockout stages for the 1st time.
Just a few months ago, the Indian team looked to be in a stable state. There was very little room for the youngsters but all has changed recently. In the run up to the World Cup, the Indian Management are looking to give playing time to as many players as possible but there is a lot of competition among the players. Rohit Sharma mentioned in a press conference before the game that the youngsters would have to make use of the few opportunities they get and establish themselves in the squad. Getting international games under their belt would be very important before the world cup.
Virat Kohli has been rested in the T20 series which opens up space in the team for the management to experiment with. The first name that comes up is KL Rahul who can directly replace Virat at No.3. Shikhar Dhawan has not been in good form in 2019 so the management will look to Rahul in the position. Manish Pandey and Shreyas Iyer might also get opportunities due to the skipper’s absence. It can be concluded that this is a heavy phase of experimentation in the Indian cricket team and it will be interesting to see what the final result will be!
