The victory would also be historic because it will be the third successive series whitewash after 2013 and 2015 under the leaderships of Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane, respectively.

Possible changes in the batting order:
1. Lokesh Rahul and Ambati Rayudu could be replaced with Faiz Fazal and Mandeep Singh.

Rahul and Rayudu have faced the most number of balls in the tournament till now and MS Dhoni could give Faiz Fazal a chance to open the batting order with Karun Nayar. Mandeep Singh could be a replacement for Rayadu, playing at number three currently. Both Faiz and Mandeep have never played an international game before.

2. Unadkat or Dhawan could be a probable change in bowling department

Fast bowlers Barinder Sran, Dhawal Kulkarni, and Jaspreet Bumrah have impressed with their performance on the tour and now that the series has already been pocketed by India, MS Dhoni will be tempted to give a chance to Jaydev Unadkat or Rishi Dhawan. As far as spinners are concerned, either Yuzvendra Chahal or Axar Patel will have to be rested in order to give a chance to uncapped Jayant Yadav.

Rest of the squad is expected to remain unchanged.
