The top order in the Indian cricket team has been failing for some time now. As a result, while there was a discussion that it would be better if Rishabh Pant came as an opener, former Indian cricketer Akash Chopra supported Prithvisha. India could not win the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup as the top order batsmen did not play consistently. On the other hand, many criticisms have been expressed regarding the selection of the team. Rishabh Pant should be sent as an opener instead of in the middle order. Indian player Dinesh Karthik also suggested that Pant should be sent as an opener. However, Akash Chopra, the former cricketer of Team India, reacted differently to this matter. Speaking on his YouTube channel, Chopra advised to send Prithvisha as the opener. Akash Chopra said that Prithvisha is the first choice that came to my mind in terms of opening, his natural style of play is destructive, many people think that he is not suitable as an opener.. But once you see his statistics, Chopra said that you will know, if you want a rocket shot.. he becomes like a rocket. He plays that shot very easily. Akash Chopra clarified that he is not saying that he will excel in every match, but players like Butler and Hales cannot excel in every match.
Although Prithvisha gave a great performance in the domestic tournament, he was not selected for Team India this year. He said that his option for the second position is Ishan Kishan, this left-handed batsman can also play aggressively. He said that even if he fails at times, he will do well. Akash Chopra said that there was some pressure on him when he played for Mumbai Indians.
It is known that the Indian team is currently on a tour of New Zealand. In this tour, India will also play three ODI series including 3 T20 series against New Zealand. While Hardik Pandya is captaining the T20s, the first T20 was scheduled to take place on Friday, but it was canceled due to rain. The second T20 will be held on Sunday. The Indian team has already reached Mount Maunganui, the venue where the match will be held. Shikhar Dhawan will captain the ODI series after the T20 series.
