India are grappling with a selection dilemma and a prolonged form slump of their batsmen as they go into the crucial tri-series match against Sri Lanka on Tuesday without the services of their in-form captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Dhoni has been handed a one-match ban for slow over-rate in India’s last match against Australia, which they lost by a huge 110 runs at the Gabba on Sunday.
Sachin Tendulkar also appears to be a doubtful starter after he received a blow on his head from a bouncer by Brett Lee. While fielding in the slips, Tendulkar also took a hit on his shin thanks to an edge from Peter Forrest, which kept him out for 25 of Australia’s 50 overs. Barely a couple of points ahead of Sri Lanka in the table but already having played an extra game, India’s best chance is to maximise their winning options in the two remaining games against Sri Lanka.India have three remaining games, one of them against Australia in Sydney on February 26 besides the two matches against their sub-continent neighbours.
As far as the team combination is concerned, the early momentum of the series has given way to confusion because their most redoubtable batsman, Dhoni, is not available for the match.
As things stand, Virender Sehwag is set to lead and Parthiv Patel would get his first game as a wicketkeeper in the side, but Indians would still have to make a choice about the batsman to leave out.India would also have to choose between the four medium-pacers — Zaheer Khan, Umesh Yadav, Vinay Kumar and Irfan Pathan — to get the balance right.
Zaheer, because of his firepower, ought to be in the eleven even though the heat of Gabba appeared to get to him on Sunday. Pathan, despite the runs he went for, had a useful outing with both bat and ball and Vinay Kumar, but for his final three overs, was spot on. It makes Umesh Yadav the fall guy even though he clocked 150kmph more than once in the last match. India would be happy to continue with Gautam Gambhir at the top of the order but there is little to cheer by way of performance by the young middle-order batsmen.
Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina — the young batting trinity in the middle — have been disappointing in the series even though the Delhi batsman began impressively with 77 against Sri Lanka in Perth. Rohit has 79 runs from five matches while Raina has 102 from as many knocks. Importantly, India would be missing the most important ingredient in Dhoni’s absence.

Dhoni has averaged more than any Indian batsman in the current series – 191 runs at 63.66 with two half centuries. As a wicketkeeper, he has had a hand in three catches and two stumpings, besides a few run-outs.
Tillakaratne Dilshan has always threatened to notch up a big score. Kumar Sangakkara has shown everything except big scores in the series so far. Young Dinesh Chandimal has looked the safest of them all and young all-rounders, Thisara Perera and Angelo Matthews, are extremely dangerous floaters, be in the middle order or as fourth or fifth bowling options.
Above all, the Sri Lankans have been exceptional in the field and led quite superbly by Jayawardene. The Lankans, given the relative frailty of their batting, have looked to pull down the scoring of the rivals and succeeded to a large extent.

India: Virender Sehwag (Capt.), Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Parthiv Patel, Ravinder Jadeja, Irfan Pathan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Zaheer Khan, Vinay Kumar and Umesh Yadav.
