The Indian cricket team is currently in the midst of a dominating spree. Kohli and his men have employed a ruthless modus operandi on the field and the team generally comes up with answers whenever they are pushed into a corner.

As a result of this balanced and well-oiled machinery, the Indian team has now won 9 consecutive ODI matches and with the victory against Australia in the third ODI, the hosts have sealed another win in a bilateral series.

However, before the Sri Lanka series, Kohli spoke about experimenting and now with the series in the bag, the Indian team can look to try out different players and combinations in the upcoming matches.

#5 Change in the batting order

Manish Pandey
Should be tried at number 3

The promotion of Hardik Pandya in the 3rd ODI to number 4 did raise quite a number of eyebrows, but with his commanding innings, he muted all the doubters.

Thus, as the Indian team takes the field in Bengaluru for the 4th ODI, the batting order should remain flexible as it will give the team a lot of options going forward and with people adjusting to different roles, the road will be less rocky for this team.

Thus, someone like a Manish Pandey could be promoted to number 3, Dhoni could walk out at number 4, these experiments should be made come the 4th match.
