India vs New Zealand 2nd T20I Opening: Team India on New Zealand tour will play the second match of the T20I series on Sunday, November 20. The first match was canceled due to rain. Many senior players including Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul have been rested in this tour. In such a situation, who will handle the opening responsibility of the team in the T20 series, this remains a big question. In the T20 World Cup, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul appeared as openers in the team. However, both the players were complete flops.
These players will be dependent
Right-handed batsman Ishaan Kishan has been included in this series. Kishan has played as an opener for the Indian team in T20 International on many occasions before. On the other hand, who will be Ishaan Kishan’s partner, it is still a mystery.
This player can be Ishaan’s partner
Rishabh Pant can be the opening partner with Ishaan. But both are left handed batsmen. In such a situation, opening of both would not be right. Shubman Gill can appear on the opening with Ishaan. A left hand and right hand combination is often sent at the opening. Gill has opened for the Indian team in ODIs on several occasions. Gill is a very successful batsman in the opening.
However, he has not yet made his debut in T20 International. Gill can make his T20 International debut in this second match of the series. Gill has so far played a total of 11 Test matches and 12 ODIs for the Indian team.
In Test cricket, Gill has scored 579 runs at an average of 30.47. In this, he has scored 4 half-centuries. At the same time, his bat speaks volumes in ODI cricket. Gill has so far scored 579 runs in 12 ODIs at an average of 57.90. He also has one century and three half-centuries in ODIs.
