New Delhi: New Zealand will aim to sweep the series from the Hardik Pandya-led team India in 2nd T20i match at Ekana Sports City, Lucknow on Sunday (29 January). After the One Day International (ODI) clean sweep against the Kiwis, Men in Blue are in desperate situation to avoid the first loss in series against New Zealand at home.
Shubman Gill or Prithvi Shaw
India’s T20 skipper Hardik Pandya made it clear that Gill will make an opening for the team while Shaw will have to wait for his chance.
There is no doubt that Shubman Gill has played outstanding knock in the ODI, but in T20, specially in powerplay, he played the worst strike rate with 119.92.
Prithvi Shaw on the other hand has the best strike rate of 152.34, in powerplay in the team, even better then Suryakumar Yadav.
Instead of backing Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya must try Shaw as an opener.
Arshdeep Singh problem
After T20 World Cup, Arshdeep Singh is struggling with his bowling. Since T20 World Cup 2022, he has given away runs at an economy rate of 11.10.
The left-arm seamer has struggled with the no-ball. In first T20 match, he conceded 27 runs in an over and went for 51 runs in his 4 over spell.
Now its time to go with Mukesh Kumar who has done well in domestic cricket.
