Ahmedabad: The selection to play eleven in the T20 five-game series against England is going to be a big headache for the Indian team (Virat Kohli) led by Virat Kohli. The choice to play eleven in this T20 series is also considered important as the T20 World Cup will be held in India in October-November this year.
The collision will be interesting with the arrival of Pant
Due to explosive strikes in test cricket, Rishabh Pant has made a comeback in the T20 squad. The return of the Rishabh pants will make things more interesting in the first order. The inclusion of Rishabh Pant means Lokesh Rahul (KL Rahul) will not be fed, who until a few months ago was the top pick as wicket keeper and opener.
Rohit-Dhawan’s first choice
Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma were the balanced opener in ODI and T20 cricket until recently, but with the arrival of Rahul there is an interesting game between the opener batsmen. Shikhar Dhawan recently hit 153 points for 118 balls in a Vijay Hazare Trophy match for Delhi and when it comes to Rohit, we don’t talk about it.
Where is Rahul going?
It will be very interesting to see where the Indian team fits Lokesh Rahul in the direction playing at eleven. Lokesh Rahul scored the highest 670 points in IPL 13 last year. In such a situation, the question is whether Lokesh Rahul will be placed in the middle order, as Dhawan will not be in the middle order.
Captain Virat Kohli arrives at number three. Pant is expected to play big shots at number five and the all-rounder Hardik Pandya at number six. Where will Rahul place himself in such a situation? Only the fourth position remains for Rahul, but Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav are also big contenders for this place.
Competition of Bhubaneswar with Chahar
In the Fast Bowling Unit, Bhuvneshwar Kumar returns after a long time and he will face Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur. However, Bhubaneswar will be ahead of Chahar because of his experience and his best bowling in Death Overs.
Natarajan is also in the race for the selection
Yuzvendra Chahal, Washington Sundar and Akshar Patel are the three turners who are expected to be played in the game eleven on the Motera field. At the same time, T Natarajan has a better chance than Navdeep Saini due to the diversity of his yorker. The T20 series between India and England will start on March 12.
