INDvsNZ 3rd T20: With the winning of the first two T20 matches against New Zealand, Team India has won the three-match T20 series. Now Team India’s effort will be to ‘clean sweep’ New Zealand and heal the disappointment found in the World Cup. In such a situation, the team management will not want to take the last match lightly, as well as it will also try to give a chance to the reserve players in the last T20 match.
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Avesh Khan and Ishan Kishan are the bench strength of Team India. Definitely one or two of these players can be given a chance in the last match.
Gaikwad, who was an orange cap in IPL, can bat at any of the first three places. For this, captain Rohit or vice-captain KL Rahul will have to sit outside. It is possible that coach Rahul Dravid may decide to rest KL Rahul as he has to play a Test series after four days.
Similarly, Avesh Khan can be fielded in place of Deepak Chahar or Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Yuzvendra Chahal can also be included in the playing XI in place of Axar Patel or Ravichandran Ashwin. Ishan Kishan can be given a chance in place of Rishabh Pant, who is playing continuously from the World Test Championship.
Dew will play a special role in the Garden of Eden
It has always been seen that it becomes very difficult to bowl at the Eden Gardens later in November. This problem arises due to dew. In such a situation, the team winning the toss prefers to bowl first. Captain Rohit Sharma will try that if he has to bat first after losing the toss, then those players should be included in the team who can set a good target by scoring fast runs.
India: Rohit Sharma (captain), Lokesh Rahul, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, Venkatesh Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, R Ashwin, Axar Patel, Avesh Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Harshal Patel and Mohammad Siraj
New Zealand: Tim Southee (captain), Todd Astle, Trent Boult, Mark Chapman, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Adam Milne, Daryl Mitchell, Jimmy Neesham, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Tim Seifert, Ish Sodhi
T20 Cricket: Harshal Patel was the ‘Man of the Match’ in the debut T20, these 4 bowlers of India have done this charisma in the past as well.
