Cuttack game to test Sehwag’s captaincy

After Dhoni being banned for two ODIs, it is now upto the stand in captain Sehwag to fight against the Lankans.

India lost the second ODI because of fielding and bowling. Now there is another blow that in form centurion in the previous game Dhoni’s batting and captaincy will be missed.

The turning factor for India is the opening parnership. In the last game it was 4 for 1. Gambhir too go out early. Batting of Sehwag will be important factor.

Yuvraj Singh who missed first two ODIs is still retained in the 15 man squad but probably won’t play.

Dinesh Karthik who replaces Dhoni for keeping will be important factor in the middle order.

Without Dhoni the middle order lacks experience. Only Raina is the spearhead with other guys Kohli, Karthik and Jadeja in the team.

If Yuvraj plays it will add a moral booster to the team. The Curator tells that this is another run fest.

The bowling and fielding needs uplift. Sehwag will be tested in choosing his bowlers and at the proper time using them.

With Ishant Sharma in the squad mostly he won’t be picked because there is no space. Maybe Praveen will be dropped.

Indians should do well to win the match. Otherwise they should will other 2 matches to win the series.
