For the Ind-SL game, Kohli and Bumrah are probably going to get respite

<p>India will play Sri Lanka in their second Super Four encounter at the R Premadasa Stadium only 15 hours after humiliating Pakistan by 228 runs and earning the essential two points on the line in order to secure a spot in the upcoming Asia Cup final.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-176649″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-for-the-ind-sl-game-kohli-and-bumrah-are-probably-going-to-get-respite-download-20.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com for the ind sl game kohli and bumrah are probably going to get respite download 20″ width=”1121″ height=”746″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-for-the-ind-sl-game-kohli-and-bumrah-are-probably-going-to-get-respite-download-20.jpg 275w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-for-the-ind-sl-game-kohli-and-bumrah-are-probably-going-to-get-respite-download-20-150×100.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1121px) 100vw, 1121px” title=”For the Ind-SL game, Kohli and Bumrah are probably going to get respite 6″></p>
<p>However, the stress of playing 50-over games on consecutive days may lead to player tiredness, something the team management won’t want as the ICC World Cup in India, which begins on October 5, approaches.</p>
<p>In such situation, it is possible that several of the major players, including Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah, may sit out the match against the Sri Lankans. Running between the wickets helped Kohli score 68 of his 122 not out against Pakistan, and he then fielded for the whole 32 overs that Pakistan batted.</p>
<p>In fact, at the conclusion of the match, the former India captain requested that his player of the match interview be kept brief so that he could rest up for the upcoming match. He said, “I was pushing for those runs and happy for it, but I was thinking I need to play at 3 pm tomorrow.”</p>
<p>Shreyas Iyer, who was a late omission for the game against Pakistan owing to a back spasm, might get a look in if Kohli is rested for the match against Sri Lanka. The team management may also be considering giving Suryakumar Yadav, who is also on the World Cup roster, some playing time.</p>
<p>Bumrah, who last month made his return to international cricket by bowling five overs for the first time, might allow Mohammed Shami to resume bowling. The 29-year-old was removed off the field at the conclusion of the contest as India edged closer to a significant victory against Pakistan.</p>
<p>Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer/Suryakumar Yadav, KL Rahul (wk), Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami, and Kuldeep Yadav make up India’s probable starting XI.</p>
