The stories of Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal as batters have been poles away in this series so far. While Rohit has been struggling to score big with the bat, Yashasvi has been going all guns blazing.

The Indian skipper has managed to accumulate only 90 runs in four innings, averaging 22.50. On the other hand, the youngster is the leading run-getter of the series with 321 runs to his name, including a double hundred.

Being a senior member of the side, Rohit will be under the radar to contribute more with his weapon. Despite all these facts, the opening duo of these two will remain intact for the third match.
