India are having a really good campaign so far. They were the first team to qualify for the finals after beating Sri Lanka in a very thrilling encounter. Their skipper, Rohit Sharma, is in good form and has scored three consecutive half-centuries. Virat Kohli and KL Rahul are handling the middle order really well, along with Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya cleaning things up and down the order.

Overall, the squad is looking great and balanced. Ahead of the ODI World Cup, this is a good chance for them to try out some of their players to determine their bench strength.
