The ODI series between India and New Zealand is going to start from Wednesday. The first match is to be played in Hyderabad. Team India captain Rohit Sharma has given a big update regarding the playing eleven in the press conference before the match. Rohit told that the young batsman Ishan Kishan Will do wicketkeeping but he will not do the opening in this series. Apart from this, Rohit also gave his opinion on the idea of getting the World Cup done here early.
Ishan Kishan did not get a chance in the ODI series against Sri Lanka. He stayed on the bench the whole time. While he scored a double century in the ODI series against Bangladesh. Ishaan is about to make a comeback once again. Rohit has already confirmed before the match that Ishan will be a part of the team in this series.
KL Rahul batting in the middle order
In the series against Sri Lanka, KL Rahul played the role of wicketkeeper, although Rahul is not a part of the team in this series. In such a situation, Ishan got a chance to do wicketkeeping. The pair of Rohit Sharma and Gill has been successful in the previous matches, so Ishan will not get a chance to open and will have to play in the middle order. Rohit said, Kishan will bat in the middle order and I am happy that he will get a chance here after that brilliant innings in Bangladesh. The team management was criticized a lot after Ishan was dropped from the team just after scoring a double century.
Rohit liked Ashwin’s idea
Rohit Sharma on Tuesday backed Ravichandran Ashwin’s idea of an early start to reduce the effect of dew in the ODI World Cup as the Indian skipper does not want any team to get an unfair advantage in a major tournament. Rohit said, this is a good idea. This is a world cup. You don’t want the toss to play much of a role. You want to remove it completely. I like the idea of early start but don’t know if it is possible. The broadcasters will decide.
