Top Three Batsmen Will Remain Same

Despite the fact that the normal skipper and the team’s No. 1 batter were rested from the series against South Africa, Dravid made it clear that he is not in the mood to meddle with the top three.

“We know our top three’s quality. They are top class. There will be a slightly different top three in this series but what we are looking for (in general) is a good positive start and playing according to the situation. If it’s a high-scoring game, then obviously you want your players to maintain the strike rate.”
