India vs Sri Lanka, 3rd T20I: Will Harbhajan Singh, Pawan Negi find place in MS Dhoni's playing XI?

New Delhi: As India is set to play the third and final T20I against neighbors Sri Lanka on Sunday at ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam, veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh and youngster Pawan Negi might get a chance to break into the playing XI.

Though the series is leveled at 1-1 and winner of today's encounter will take away the series, Indian skipper MS Dhoni, known as on-field gambler, might pull off a surprise or two in the playing XI.

Since making a comeback into the national team in T20I series against Australia, Bhajji has been warming the bench.

In the presence of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, the veteran offie didn't get a chance to play. 

Similarly, all-rounder Negi, who has been in news since breaking into the national team for the first time, didn't get a chance to play in the first two matches against Sri Lanka.

However, ahead of the Asia Cup and ICC World T20 World, Dhoni might rest his premier spinners to give a chance to Negi and Bhajji, which could give the duo some confidence before the big tournaments.

And if Negi gets a chance in the final match against the Islanders, it would be his international debut.
