New Delhi. India New Zealand T20 series is going to start from 27 January. Hardik Pandya will lead this team. Senior batsmen Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have been rested in view of the upcoming India-Australia Gavaskar-Border Test series. Young cricketers have been given ample opportunities under Hardik’s captaincy. BCCI knows that in the year 2023 there is no major tournament in the shortest format of the game. In such a situation, this is the right time when seniors should be kept away from this format under workload management and in their place youngsters like Rahul Tripathi, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill, Shivam Mavi, Jitesh Singh should be given a chance.
Hardik will not let his record get spoiled
Hardik Pandya has become the new captain. Recently, under his leadership, the Indian team has defeated Sri Lanka in the T20 series. In view of next year’s T20 World Cup, BCCI is projecting Hardik as the new captain of the team. It is being told that after the 50-over World Cup to be held this year, the captaincy of the ODI format will also be taken from Rohit. In such a situation, India’s future in ODI-T20 is hearty. While selecting the playing eleven of his team, Hardik will not make any such mistake which will spoil his own record.
He was thrown out as a drug addict… the English captain also accepted the stigma on the country… now there is an outcry with the bat
Naming done! The league will be known by this name, not WIPL… 3 IPL franchisees also bought the team
no to yuzvendra chahal will give Opportunity,
If we look at the Indian team’s squad against New Zealand, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have been given a chance for the spin department. Apart from this, Washington Sundar and Deepak Hooda are spin bowling all-rounders. Hardik will not make the mistake of making Chahal a part of the playing XI during this series. He played in all three matches of the T20 series against Sri Lanka. During this, he took only three wickets. The captain didn’t even bother to get him four overs in all the matches. Chahal last took three wickets in T20 International during Hall Asia Cup 2022. After this, he has been able to take only seven wickets in eight T20 matches played so far.
There is power in Kuldeep’s spin
On the other hand, there is a lot of variation in the bowling of Kuldeep Yadav. He is taking wickets continuously in ODIs. He played the last T20 match for the country in T20 format in August 2022 on the West Indies tour. In this match, Kuldeep also took three wickets for just 12 runs. In such a situation, Hardik’s first choice is going to be Kuldeep Yadav. He would like to give chance to Washington Sundar as a spin all-rounder along with Kuldeep.
