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.
