1. Rohit Sharma
The right-handed batsman led his team from the front in the game against Pakistan and Bangladesh and scored back-to-back half-centuries. Leading the side from the front, Rohit scored unbeaten 83* against Bangladesh and took his team home.
Against Pakistan, he scored a quickfire 52 before getting dismissed by Shadab Khan but he had done the damage with his whirlwind knock. Rohit, who is often hailed as one of the biggest strikers of the white ball, would look to continue the good performance against Pakistan and look to continue from where he left.
2. Shikhar Dhawan
After a forgettable England tour, Shikhar Dhawan announced his return to for with a composed century against minnows Hong Kong in their opening game of the Aisa Cup. Dhawan is looking in good form in the tournament as he has scored 46 and 40 against Pakistan and Bangladesh, respectively.
The left-handed batsman from Delhi has given India a positive start but has thrown his wicket away in the last two games. The team would once again hope for another fine start from the left-handed opener against Pakistan. The Delhi-cricketer has scored most runs (213) in the tournament.
3. Ambati Rayudu/Manish Pandey/KL Rahul
The right-handed batsman from Hyderabad has made most of the opportunity in the absence of skipper Virat Kohli. In his comeback match against Hong Kong, Rayudu slammed a fifty in the first and followed it up with an unbeaten 31 against Pakistan and 13 against Bangladesh.
Team management might give some match practice to KL Rahul or Manish Pandey and in that case, might rest Rayudu. Both Rahul and Pandey are eagerly waiting for an opportunity.
4. Dinesh Karthik
The Tamil Nadu cricketer couldn't do much against Hong Kong and certainly missed out on a certain half-century. In the match against Pakistan, Karthik scored unbeaten 31* and took India home.
He didn't get the opportunity to bat against Bangladesh as MS Dhoni was promoted at No. 4. He hasn't done anything wrong so far and therefore he'll make it to the squad against Pakistan.
5. MS Dhoni
The veteran wicket-keeper batsman failed with the bat in that game against Hong Kong as he was dismissed for a third ball duck.
Against Bangladesh Dhoni was promoted at to No. 4 and made most of it. The Ranchi dasher scored 33 before getting dismissed while finishing the match but by that time he had already spent some time into the middle.
Dhoni is having a good outing from behind the stumps as well.
The 37-year-old has taken five catches and effected a couple of stumpings in the tournament. Dhoni's presence in the side has ensured the team doesn't panic under the pressure situation. The veteran, in the absence of Kohli, could bat at No. 4 or 5 as per the team's requirements.
6. Kedar Jadhav
Kedar Jadhav has a knack of picking up crucial wickets and the Indian batsman attributes his golden touch to not bowling much in the nets.
Jadhav, who has made a comeback after recovering from a hamstring injury, made a compelling contribution of three wickets in the Asia Cup 2018 clash against Pakistan on Wednesday (September 19), picking up three wickets with his deceptive side-arm action.
In the absence of Hardik Pandya - the all-rounder, Kedar's role as a batsman would also be crucial for Team India. The right-handed-batsman would come in to bat at No. 6. His services with the ball weren't required against Bangladesh.
7. Ravindra Jadeja
The Saurashtra all-rounder made a comeback in the ODI set up after more than a year and it looked as if Jadeja was waiting for that opportunity. The left-arm spinner picked up a match-winning four-for and rattled Bangladesh's middle order.
The all-rounder, who came in as a replacement to Axar Patel, was awarded the man of the match for his bowling performance. Considering his batting exploits, lower down the order, Jadeja makes a perfect batsman at No. 7.
The southpaw has the ability to play big shots lower down the order and this makes him an ideal replacement to Hardik Pandya.
8. Bhuvneshwar Kumar
The UP pacer missed the Test series in England due to injury and was out of action for almost two months.
The speedster looked little rusty against Hong Kong but regained his prime against Pakistan and ended up winning the man of the match for his figure of 3/15 and against Bangladesh, he again picked up 3 and again got those early breakthroughs.
The right-arm pacer would be leading India's pace attack with the new ball. His experience and ability to bowl well in the death would be crucial to India's success in the tournament.
9. Yuzvendra Chahal
The wrist-spinner couldn't pick any wickets against Pakistan and Bangladesh and bowled economically well against Bangladesh. Chahal will be the second wrist-spinner for India and team would hope the Haryana bowler finds his grooves. Chahal and Kuldeep have been crucial to India's limited-overs exploits in the last one year.
10. Kuldeep Yadav
The chinaman was India's key bowler in the limited-overs' series against England and almost looked unplayable.
The Kanpur wrist-spinner will be crucial to India's success in the tournament as the wrist spinners are ruling the roost with the white ball these days. Kuldeep picked up two wickets against Pakistan and remained wicketless against Bangladesh for he was tad unlucky.
The wrist-spinner must be looking to get some wickets against Pakistan.
11. Jasprit Bumrah
The No.1 ranked bowler in the ODIs, Bumrah is proving why India are doing well in the powerplays. Bumrah started exceptionally well against Pakistan and Bangladesh as he put pressure on the opposition batsmen.
Bumrah is a dangerous limited-overs' bowler and team would be hoping he gets some early wickets as well in the upcoming matches.
