    …..”I may try them when we start the tournament.”
    You can’t try players you are not sure of in the beginning of the tournament. Wait until the third match. If you have already garnered maximum points then rest some players who you think deserve it, and that is the time to use those you were not sure of.

    Those you rest will be fresh in the knock out stage, and those you try out will show you which players to continue or discontinue with.
    Wishing you the best.
