Batters: Head and Marsh
Both batters have been rock-solid at the top as openers and would aim to continue their dominance in the same fashion, with the balanced Chepauk track aiding them to some extent. Marsh's impactfulness makes him the deputy captain.
He is the man in the better form of all in the department. While he was decent in the opening ODI, he perished in the second but is expected to bounce back in the third, given the balanced Chepauk wicket.

All-rounders: Pandya, Jadeja and Stonis
The trio have been super-effective across departments. While Pandya and Stoinis can dominate with their explosive batting and sheer pace, Jadeja can play composedly with the bat, while his leg-spins are lethal as always.
Bowlers: Starc (c), Siraj, Shami, Abbot and Ellis
As for the bowlers, we have an all-out pace attack, given that the Chennai track is best-suited for pacers, while Starc's deadliness in any condition, especially on a pace-friendly Chepauk wicket makes, besides his sheer dominance in Visakhapatnam, makes him the undisputed skipper.
