Pant has already represented India in T20s

India carried on from where they had left off against Sri Lanka, annihilating the visiting Australians in the first ODI at Chennai, by 26 runs.

The Indian side look in good nick and should, in all likelihood, end up claiming the next two ODIs as well. If they do that, they would look to rest a few players going into the final couple of matches.

Here's looking at five players who should be given a chance in the final two games of the series.

#5 Rishabh Pant

Rishabh Pant has already featured for India in T20s and it is only a matter of time before he makes the cut in ODIs as well. Pant can be equally devastating at the top and lower down the order and can be used as a floater in the Indian set-up.

Pant struggled in the latter stages of IPL 2017 after a sensational start, and failed to get going on the recent India 'A' tour as well. However, he is still one of the brightest young talents in India and could very well become one of their greatest ever players, in the future.

Additionally, the 19-year-old, if used as an opener, could form a potent left-right combination at the top along with Rohit Sharma or Ajinkya Rahane.
