After defeating New Zealand 1-0 in the T20 series, now the challenge is the ODI series. The three-match ODI series starts in Auckland from Friday. The biggest question before the start of the series is what will be India’s playing eleven? Questions arise in the T20 series Sanju Samson And players like Omran Malik didn’t get a chance, will it be different in the ODI series? In the T20 series, captain Hardik Pandya said that Sanju did not get a chance due to tactical reasons, will he fit in the ODI strategy?
We tell you that it is still difficult for players like Sanju Samson and Omran Malik to make it to the XI. Because there are names in the Indian team who will not be so easy to keep out.
Chances are hard to come by for Samson-Omran
Chances for Sanju Samson and Umran Malik are difficult to come by as the team has a wicketkeeper in the form of Rishabh Pant. Also in this team is Deepak Hooda, who is an all-rounder. With bowlers like Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur in the team, Omran Malik’s game is also difficult. Also, there are reports that Arshdeep Singh, who has worked wonders in the T20 format, will get a chance to make his debut.
What will happen to the top six in the playing eleven?
Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill are sure to field as openers. Shreyas Iyer performed best in the last tour of New Zealand, so his place is assured. 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 game. Apart from this, he will also do wicketkeeping. This time the fight for the number six batsman will be between Deepak Hooda and Samson. Being a utility player, Hooda has the upper hand. Apart from batting, he also showed his skills in bowling.
Who will be given the responsibility of bowling?
Talking about the bowling, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Arshdeep Singh are fast bowlers and Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav are almost certain to play in the spin attack. In such a situation, Omran Malik is seen sitting on the bench.
India’s Probable Playing XI for First ODI – Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Deepak Hooda, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Arshdeep Singh, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal.
