An India series always brings sponsorship for the host nation. And along with that comes an opportunity for the players from the home team to get noticed by the craziest fans in the world. If a player performs well against India, he is bound to get noticed by the franchises of the richest league in the world- the Indian Premier League. So it is not just the financial gain, but an overall improvement in how is looked upon in that the country is eyeing.

Possible playing elevens of both the teams

The Indian team would look to include both Deepak Chahar and in the playing eleven as they are coming back from injuries, but are more than important parts of the team’s future endeavours. Deepak Hooda and Shikhar Dhawan’s place in the team cannot be compromised either and hence tea team will be built around these four players. Rahul Tripathi, who got a deserving India call-up after his heroics in the IPL will most likely debut in this game too.
