Rahul Dravid told the whole truth about Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer.

Rahul Dravid PC India vs Afghanistan T20I Series : Both the teams are ready for the T20 series between India and Afghanistan. The first match will be played on January 11 at Mohali ground. A day before the match, when the team was in Mohali, the team’s head coach Rahul Dravid came to talk to the media. After the team selection for the series, the biggest question was why Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer are not playing in this series. Since the announcement of the team, there have been many speculations in the media, but now the head coach himself has made it clear why Ishaan and Shreyas Iyer are not playing in this series.

Ishaan Kishan had asked for rest

A day before the match, it was expected that team captain Rohit Sharma would meet the media, but here head coach Rahul Dravid took the responsibility. In response to the question asked about Ishaan and Shreyas, Dravid clearly said that whatever is being reported in the media is not true. He told that Ishan Kishan had asked for rest and I think he had not made himself available for this series, that is why he has not been selected in the team. In response to the question asked about Shreyas Iyer, he said that he is not playing this series because of many batsmen. But as far as disciplinary action is being said, there is no substance in it. He termed such news as fake.

Shreyas Iyer is also not playing Afghanistan series

Shreyas Iyer had earlier gone to South Africa with the Indian team and played in both the test matches. Before this, he was also the vice-captain of the T20 series against Australia. However, he could not play any match against South Africa because he had joined another team to prepare for the Test. Talking about Ishan Kishan, he came back in the middle of the series due to some reason. After this, when the team was announced, the names of these two were not there. Then there was continuous speculation, but now the head coach himself has come forward and clarified the whole matter.

Virat Kohli may miss the first match

Meanwhile, head coach Dravid also made it clear that Yashasvi Jaiswal will be seen opening with Rohit Sharma in the first T20 match. But Dravid did not say anything about Shubhman Gill. But it is being said that Virat Kohli will not be able to play in the first match. This is happening due to some family reasons. In such a situation, it is possible that Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal will open and Shubman Gill will be given a chance to bat at number three. However, the full cards will be revealed only when Rohit Sharma comes for the toss and announces his playing eleven of the match.
