IND vs NZ: Who will be Team India’s opener batsman in T20 series, captain Hardik Pandya’s problems increased

New Delhi: Team India is on New Zealand tour after being eliminated from the semi-finals of the ICC T20 World Cup. Here India has to play a series of three T20 and three ODIs. The first match of the T20 series will be played in Wellington on 18 November. Hardik Pandya is captaining Team India in this match. Because captain Rohit Sharma has been rested for this series. Apart from Rohit, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli are also not playing in this series.

In such a situation, there will be a big challenge in front of Captain Hardik Pandya to prepare the combination of Team India’s playing XI. In this series, he may have to make the most difficult decision regarding the opening pair of the team. In such a situation, let us know who can be the opening partner against New Zealand.

Ishaan Kishan and Shubman Gill

In the T20 series against New Zealand, Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill are the only two players who have been included in the team as the main openers. Ishaan Kishan has been continuously opening for Team India in T20 format. At the same time, Shubman Gill has also been included in the T20 team due to his consistent performance in the ODI format. Shubman has scored 530 runs in 9 ODIs for India at an average of 75.7.

In such a situation, if Ishaan Kishan and Shubman Gill take the field for the opening in the T20 series against New Zealand, then there should be no surprise in it.

Shubman Gill and Rishabh Pant

Team India can field Shubman Gill and Rishabh Pant as the second opener pair. Shubman Gill has been included as the main opener for the team. Whereas Pant has come in this format batting in the middle order. However, there is a constant demand that he should be made to open, because the position at which he plays for the team, he gets very little time to bat. In such a situation, the team management can hand over the responsibility of opening to Rishabh Pant.

Ishaan Kishan and Sanju Samson

Wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson has also been included in the squad for the tour of New Zealand. Sanju also does opening batting in T20 format. In such a situation, Team India can send Ishaan Kishan for the opening with seven left-right combinations. Sanju Samson has also been seen opening in the Indian Premier League.
