Former captain sunil gavaskar: sunil gavaskar suggest two changes in team india’s playing xi vs new zealand t20 world cup 2021 match, hardik pandya to bhuvneshwar kumar
- Hardik’s poor form is a matter of concern for Team India
- Ishan Kishan showed great form in warm-up matches
- Indian team has lost its first match to Pakistan.
The Indian cricket team will take on New Zealand (IND vs NZ T20 World Cup 2021) on 31 October in the Group 2 match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 Super 12. Team India had to face defeat by 10 wickets in the first match against Pakistan. The New Zealand team has also lost its first match.
In such a situation, it will be a ‘do or die’ match for both the teams. Before this important match, former Indian cricket team captain Sunil Gavaskar has suggested 2 changes in Team India’s playing XI.
Veteran Gavaskar said in a conversation with Sports that if all-rounder Hardik Pandya does not bowl, then Ishan Kishan should be given a chance in his place. Gavaskar has also talked about including Shardul Thakur in the playing XI.
Gavaskar said, ‘If Hardik Pandya is not bowling (who suffered a shoulder injury in the match against Pakistan). Ishan Kishan is in great form at the moment so I will keep him ahead of Pandya. And maybe you can think of Shardul Thakur instead of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. If you make more changes, it will show the opposition that you are more nervous.
Pakistan restricted India to a score of 151
The Indian team was restricted to 151 runs by Pakistan in the first match. In that match, the Indian bowlers could not leave an impact on the Pakistani batsmen. Team India bowlers could not take a single wicket.
Pandya’s bat remained silent even in IPL 2021
Hardik Pandya has not been able to bowl for the last several months. Pandya’s bat was also silent in the recently concluded 14th edition of IPL 2021. He returned to the pavilion after scoring 11 runs against Pakistan when the team needed to bat quickly.
Ishaan included in Team India as a reserve opener
However, on Wednesday, Pandya was seen bowling in the nets. In such a situation, it should be expected that if Hardik gets a chance in the playing XI against the Kiwi team, then he will be seen bowling. On the other hand, Ishaan has been included in the team as a reserve opener. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is also struggling in poor form. He conceded 25 runs against Pakistan.
