Suryakumar Yadav will be another batsman in the middle-order. When the right-handed batsman was given a chance in playing XI in IND vs SA 3rd ODI, he slammed 39 runs for the team. Amid India’s middle-order woes in ODIs, Yadav can be a useful batsman in the middle.

Washinton Sundar might be the all-rounder that India can pick in IND vs WI 1st ODI. Since the match will be played in India, picking a spin all-rounder will be a good idea. Sundar has not played for the national side for a long time due to injury and will be eager to give his best shot for the team.

Deepak Chahar will be another pacer for India in the playing XI. With the absence of prime pacers like Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar from the ODI squad, Deepak Chahar will have a lot of responsibility.
