After defeating New Zealand 1-0 in T20 series, now the challenge is of ODI series. The three-match ODI series is starting in Auckland from Friday. One of the biggest questions before the start of the series is that what will be India’s playing XI? The question is that in the T20 series sanju samson And players like Umran Malik didn’t get a chance, will it be different in the ODI series? Captain Hardik Pandya had said in the T20 series that Sanju could not get a chance due to strategic reasons, will he fit into the ODI strategy?
Let us tell you that it is still difficult for players like Sanju Samson and Umran Malik to make a place in the playing XI. Because there are such names in the Indian squad which will not be so easy to keep out.
It is difficult for Samson-Umran to get a chance
Sanju Samson and Umran Malik find it difficult to get a chance because the team has a wicketkeeper in the form of Rishabh Pant. At the same time, Deepak Hooda is also in this team, who is an all-rounder. Umran Malik is also difficult to play because there are bowlers like Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur in the squad. Also, there are reports that Arshdeep Singh, who has done wonders in the T20 format, will get a chance to make his debut.
What will be the top 6 in the playing eleven?
Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill are sure to land as openers. Shreyas Iyer performed best on the last New Zealand tour, so his place is confirmed. Apart from this, Suryakumar Yadav is also sure to play. Rishabh Pant is the vice-captain in the ODI series, so in such a situation, you must understand his playing. Along with this, he will also do wicketkeeping. Now there will be a fight between Deepak Hooda and Samson for the number six batsman. Hooda has the upper hand as he is a utility player. He has shown his mettle in batting as well as bowling.
Who will be given the responsibility of bowling?
Talking about bowling, the playing of Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Arshdeep Singh fast bowler and Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav in spin attack is almost certain. In such a situation, Umran Malik can be seen sitting on the bench.
