After a hundred-run defeat at Lord’s, Team India wants to win the series final to be held in Manchester on Sunday. Ahead of the all-important clash, all eyes are on the possible team combinations as fans want to know who will play in this crucial match. Will there be any change in the Indian team? Can Arshdeep Singh replace the famous Krishna? Especially after his less-than-ordinary performance in the last match where he took a wicket and dropped a catch of David Willey which proved fatal in the end.

Here’s what Zaheer Khan told Cricbuzz.
“I don’t expect much change from the Indian side. They are playing two spinners, Hardik Pandya is bowling, so he has got his balance right. They may argue about Arshdeep Singh or perhaps the famous Krishna making way for them. If we want to use swing. So, that’s the only change I am hoping for. Other than that, I don’t expect any change.”
Meanwhile, former England captain Michael Vaughan said that he also agrees with Zaheer, saying that the management should not make much changes and changes in an important match.
“Old Trafford is not where he swings. I don’t know what the science is behind it, but you won’t have Old Trafford as the place where it traditionally swings. You have to hit the pitch hard. I don’t think India will make many changes. At this stage, where you have the series, I wouldn’t be surprised if they go with the same team. ,

Lord’s saw a new batsman in the form of Rishabh Pant at number four, who was dismissed for five off five balls. So should Pant continue to bat or Suryakumar Yadav will continue to bat there? What former India cricketer RP Singh said.
He said, ‘I believe Suryakumar Yadav should play at four o’clock. If you go back you will see that Virat Kohli has changed his batting position a lot. He used to bat on three, but opened in some matches. Sometimes KL Rahul also batted on three.
“I always believed that if you have someone who is consistently scoring runs at a particular batting position, you should not make too many changes to his position. People say if a batsman is good, he can bat anywhere, but no, it affects him,” Singh told Cricbuzz YouTube channel.
