Team India’s morale is high after registering four consecutive wins in the World Cup 2023. But before the most important match against New Zealand, India faced the problem of playing 11. This problem has come to light due to the injury of Hardik Pandya. There are many options in front of coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma, but the brainstorming is going on as to who fits in the composition of the winning team.
India head coach Rahul Dravid admitted that he will miss injured all-rounder Hardik Pandya in the World Cup clash against New Zealand here on Sunday and his absence will affect the balance of the team but he has prepared the best combination with the 14 players available. Will have to do.
The match between India and New Zealand to be played in Dharamshala on Sunday is being seen as the final of the World Cup 2023. Because till now only New Zealand and India have won all their matches. India will not want to take any risk before this high voltage match. However, India has three options, on which coach Dravid and captain Rohit also seem to agree. So let us know who those faces are.
1. Mohammed Shami
Mohammed Shami can be a better option in the match against New Zealand. Shami has been a successful bowler in Dharamshala. He has played two matches so far in Dharamshala, in which he has taken 3 wickets. Coach Dravid said, I think we can come up with different, different combinations. Obviously with three fast bowlers, sitting out a player like Shami and giving him a chance in this match is a good option.
2. R Ashwin
After the injury of Hardik Pandya, the biggest claim in the playing eleven against New Zealand seems to be made with R Ashwin. Because Ashwin also takes wickets and shows his brilliance with the bat as well. However, Ashwin did not get a single wicket in Dharamshala. Coach Dravid has also indicated that if the playing eleven is prepared with three fast and three spinners, then Aar can play Ashwin and take Jadeja higher (in the batting order).
3. Suryakumar Yadav
Surya has to remain on the bench in the World Cup 2023, but he may get a chance in the match against New Zealand. Coach Dravid has also indicated to give him a chance. He said in the press conference, Surya (Suryakumar Yadav) was also in excellent form against Australia. He played some brilliant innings. As we know, great player against spin. Against left arm spin or off spin or any type of spin. He said, if you are looking for someone who can be a bit of an inspiration for us in the lower middle order then Surya is definitely the guy who can do that.
4. Ishan Kishan
Ishan Kishan may also get a chance in the Indian team in the match against New Zealand. Coach Dravid also hinted about Ishaan in the press conference. Dravid said, in the context of giving a chance to Ishan Kishan in the top order against New Zealand’s left-arm spinners and leg spinners, Dravid said, it is good to have Ishan. He is playing well.
