New Delhi: Since the final T20 match between India and South Africa is nothing less than a dead rubber, Indian skipper MS Dhoni, who has faced criticism for his team selection in the last two matches, is expected to make some changes for the final match.
Here are three players who should be included for the final match:
Amit Mishra: Since Axar Patel is new to international cricket, the leggie should be given a chance since South Africa have big-hitting left-handers in JP Duminy, Albie Morkel and David Miller. India should persist with R Ashwin and Harbhajan Singh for the final T20 and include Mishra, who has a lot of tricks up his sleeves to baboozle the Proteas.
Ajinkya Rahane: When India toured Bangladesh earlier this year, Dhoni surprised everybody by dropping Ajinkya Rahane saying that he was someone who took time to score runs on slow tracks. Rahane has been a run-machine not only in India, but across the world. In his short career, Rahane has made a name for himself by playing several formidable knocks abroad. Any day, he is a much more handy batsman by Ambati Rayudu, who has had a miserable T20 series so far.
Stuart Binny: Currently, as far as a genuine all-rounder is concerned, Team India has one option in Stuart Binny. But for some reasons, the 31-year-old has failed to impress the selectors and has been in and out of the team on numerous occasions. Considering the fact that the ICC World T20 will be played in India, Dhoni and the other think tank should back Binny to show his all-round skills on a regular basis.
