India vs Afghanistan 1st T20i Probable Playing XI : Virat Kohli’s fans were hoping that he would return to the field for T20 International after about 15 months, but a day before the match, their hopes got a deep blow. Head coach Rahul Dravid has made it clear that Kohli will not be able to play in the first match. However, Dravid did not give any clear reason for his not playing and avoided it by saying family reasons. But everyone knows that January 11 is the birthday of Kohli’s daughter Vamika. That’s why they prefer to live with family. Well, now Virat Kohli is not playing, then what could be the playing eleven of Team India, that is, there is a possibility of an entry in the team. Let’s talk about this.

Yashasvi Jaiswal will open with Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill may have a chance at number three.

While talking to the media a day before the match, head coach Rahul Dravid has made it clear that his opening partner along with captain Rohit Sharma will be Yashasvi Jaiswal. If Virat Kohli is not playing, it is possible that Shubman Gill may be given a chance at number three. Shubman Gill is a resident of Punjab, hence he is eligible to play. If we talk further after these top three batsmen, Sanju Samson can come to bat at number four. Although Jitesh Sharma is also in the team, but Sanju Samson is expected to get a chance. Earlier recently, he had scored a brilliant century against South Africa while batting at number three. That means they are in form and the Indian team can benefit from it.

Shivam Dubey and Rinku Singh can also get a place in the playing eleven.

In the absence of Hardik Pandya, Shivam Dubey has been given a chance in the team. He can be seen playing as an all-rounder. Along with batting, he can also bowl four overs. It is almost certain that Rinku Singh will also play. Currently, he has no match in terms of scoring runs quickly in the last overs. Whether the team is batting first or bowling first. Apart from this, the team has two top class spinners in the form of Axar Patel and Washington Sundar, who can also bat. The team has specialist spinners like Kuldeep Yadav and Ravi Bishnoi, but considering the batting, Akshar and Sundar can be selected for the playing eleven. At the same time, it is almost certain that Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan and Mukesh Kumar will play as three fast bowlers.

Probable playing eleven of the first match: Rohit Sharma, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Sanju Samson, Shivam Dubey, Rinku Singh, Akshar Patel, Washington Sundar, Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan, Mukesh Kumar.

Complete squad of Team India: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Tilak Verma, Rinku Singh, Jitesh Sharma (wicketkeeper), Sanju Samson (wicketkeeper), Shivam Dubey, Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh. , Avesh Khan, Mukesh Kumar.
