The first T20 match between India and New Zealand will be played on 18 November.
The command of Team India against New Zealand will be in the hands of Hardik Pandya.
New Delhi. Team India had a good start in the T20 World Cup 2022. But in the end the team choked in the semi-final match against England. Team India had not recovered from the sorrow of the World Cup, then captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid were severely criticized. At the same time, even after the tournament is over, Rahul Dravid is in the circle of questions. But this time the issue is not the World Cup.
Actually, the Indian team is on New Zealand tour after Australia. A three-match T20 series is to be held between Team India and the Kiwi team from November 18. During this, the team’s head coach Rahul Dravid is not on New Zealand tour with the Indian team. He has taken a break after the World Cup, about which many veteran players have expressed displeasure. One of them is the name of former Team India coach Ravi Shastri. VVS Laxman has been sent as head coach with the team in New Zealand.
I don’t believe in brakes – Ravi Shastri
Ravi Shastri targeted Rahul Dravid during the press conference and said, ‘I do not believe in breaks. It is important for me to understand the team players and have control over the team. Why do you need so many breaks? You get a break of two-three months during the IPL just like that. As a coach, this much break is enough for rest. According to me, a coach should always be with the team.
Michael Vaughan had to mess with Wasim Jaffer, why did the former veteran advise to use Burnol?
Hardik has command of the team against New Zealand
Team India’s all-rounder Hardik Pandya will take charge of the team in the series against New Zealand. 2022 has proved to be very good for Hardik. In IPL 2022, Hardik had given the title victory to Gujarat Titans as captain. Even in the World Cup, Pandya has created fear among the opposing teams with his aggressive performance. Now it will be interesting to see whether Hardik is able to win India’s victory outside the house or not.
