Rohit Sharma is likely to lead India in the 5-match T20I series as the Asian giants resume their journey to this year’s T20 World Cup, to be held in Australia in October-November.

India might be tempted to give some of the big names, including the out-of-form Rohit and Virat Kohli, some rest, but with the World Cup approaching, the former champions would want to play with a full squad. Players like Hardik Pandya, T Natarajan and Washington Sundar may return to the squad after suffering injuries in the past. †

India, under Rohit Sharma, has been phenomenal in the game’s shortest form since the T20 World Cup, which saw the squad knocked out in the Super 12 stages. Virat Kohli had stepped down as captain after the World Cup, after which Rohit had an impeccable record in the shortest form of the game.

India had a 9-0 record in T20Is, after completing clean sweeps at home against New Zealand, the West Indies and Sri Lanka.
