With the semifinal berth already in hand, Team India can look to try their bench strength. But given by coach's Rahul Dravid's statements earlier, a change in the winning combination is not very likely to happen.

"We need to be as clinical as possible. We know no team is a brush-over, so... we can’t go in there and expect them to crumble." - R Ashwin ahead of Zimbabwe clash
Nov 06, 2022 12:20 PM IST
IND vs ZIM LIVE score update: Why is Ashwin considered over Chahal
Well India are yet to try Yuzvendra Chahal in any of the contest and the reason behind that could be Ashwin's batting capabilities, as seen against Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Ashwin had joined Virat Kohli in the middle in a tensed situation, and his game awareness, followed by a clean hit over the mid-off fielder gave India the win against Pakistan.
In the clash against Bangladesh, Ashwin hit a six and a boundary in the final over as India piled a staggering 184/6 in 20 overs.
His inclusion also helps the management avoid a long tail, despite having a solid middle-order, with batters like Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya present in the ranks.
