India vs New Zealand: The last match of the 3 ODI series between India and New Zealand is being played in Christchurch today. In the third ODI, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has decided to bowl first after winning the toss. In such a situation, Team India will have to get down to bat first. At the same time, the Indian team has retained the team of the previous match in this game as well. Sanju Samson has to be ruled out in this match as well.
Injustice again with Sanju
India’s wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson has been dropped from the playing XI even after performing well. A useful inning of 36 runs was also played in Sanj’s first ODI. He shared a partnership of more than 80 runs with Shreyas Iyer, on the basis of which India was able to score more than 300. But even after this performance, he has been dropped from the team.
Pant got a chance again
The Indian team has given another chance to Rishabh Pant, who is battling a bad face. He has been included in the playing eleven for the second ODI. Rishabh Pant has been struggling with bad form for a long time. Fans are constantly talking about leaving him out of the team and giving a chance to Sanju. If we look at Pant’s last five innings, he has scored 6,3,6,11,15 runs in the last five innings. While looking at his T20 performance in the year 2022, he has scored 364 runs in 21 innings this year at an average of just 21.21. Pant’s poor form remains a major concern for Team India.
