India vs New Zealand On the tour of New Zealand, the Indian team has got a lot of trouble. Both the veteran openers of the team are out of the team.
India vs New Zealand: The Indian team is currently on a tour to New Zealand, where Virat & Co. defeated the host Kiwi team 5–0 in the 5-match T20 series. Meanwhile, a big problem has come over the Indian team. Both the legendary openers of the Indian team have been dropped from the team. In such a situation, captain Virat Kohli has no option but to give a chance to new players.
In fact, Shikhar Dhawan, who was injured in the last match of the ODI series against Australia, was already out of the T20 and ODI series against New Zealand. On the other hand, in the last T20 match against New Zealand, the second opener Rohit Sharma was also injured. Rohit also dropped out of ODIs and Test series. In such a situation, Virat Kohli does not have a big option for opening.
KL Rahul will bat in the middle order
Although KL Rahul can play as an opener, captain Virat Kohli has made up his mind to bat in the middle order. At the same time, after Rohit Sharma has been injured, Mayank Agarwal has been included in the ODI team, who has become the regular opener of the Indian team in Tests, while Mayank Agarwal is scoring continuously for domestic cricket and India A. In such a situation, they can also get at least 3 chances.
In addition to Mayank Agarwal, Prithvi Shaw, who was included in the team in place of Shikhar Dhawan, has been named by Virat Kohli in the press conference before the first ODI match that Prithvi Shaw will start the Indian innings in the ODI series. Let me tell you, Mayank Agarwal and Prithvi Shaw have made their debut in India’s Test team but will take the field for the first time in One Day International cricket. In such a situation, one can say that there will be an opportunity after the first match of India when two debutant batsmen will open for the Indian team.
