IND vs NZ: Adaragotti in Deshwali.. Re-entry into Team India after 19 months.. However, a place in the playing 11 is difficult.. Who?

India vs New Zealand 1st T20I: Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill opened the innings in the first T20 against New Zealand. Gill showed excellent form in the ODI series against New Zealand.

After sweeping New Zealand 3-0 in the ODI series, India is now looking to thrash New Zealand in the T20I series as well. While senior players like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will be rested after the ODI series, Hardik Pandya will lead the T20 team. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has already announced the T20 squad against New Zealand. A storm batsman like Prithvi Shah was also selected in this team after a long time. But, looking at the team, it is said that he does not get a chance in the playing eleven.

Whenever the Indian team plays a series, the fans are always interested in the name of Prithvi Shah in the T20 team. But, every time he saw such hope.. Shah had to be stubborn. But, Shah has been making runs in domestic cricket for a long time. However, the selectors did not give a chance. There have also been incidents where fans have expressed anger at BCCI on social media as Shah’s name did not appear in the team. At present, even after Shaw’s return to the team, fans are saying that they will have to wait to play in the blue jersey.

Prithvi Shah’s place in the playing 11 is difficult.

Prithvi Shah will be the opener. But, looking at the current squad, it doesn’t look like he can make it to the playing 11. Along with Prithvi Shah, Shubhaman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Rituraj Gaikwad and Rahul Tripathi are the openers in this team. It seems that Hardik Pandya may play against New Zealand with the same two openers who played against Sri Lanka.

Gill, Ishan as openers..

Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill will be seen opening the innings in the first T20 against New Zealand. After the Sri Lanka T20 series, Gill’s position was definitely under threat as he failed to show anything spectacular in the shorter format of cricket. In the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka, he scored only 58 runs with the bat. But his runs in the next 6 ODIs could cement his place. Against Sri Lanka, Gill scored 207 runs at an average of 69, while against New Zealand he scored 360 runs at an average of 180. He also scored a double century in this sequence. It seems difficult for Shaw to play as an opener in such conditions.

Tripathi in the third number..

Talking about number three, in the last match against Sri Lanka, Rahul Tripathi played a brilliant innings and won the trust of the captain and coach. It is difficult for Shah to play there in such conditions. His rank may not be below 3rd rank in any way. In such a situation, Shaw will have to wait a long time to get a place in the playing XI.

India’s probable playing XI for the first T20 against New Zealand – Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Shivam Mavi, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik.
