However, the match in Ranchi will also be an opportunity for Dhoni’s ward Ishan Kishan to don the India jersey in front of the home crowd. An explosive wicketkeeper-batsman like his mentor MS Dhoni himself, the Jharkhand captain has made a name in the domestic circuit, IPL and then for India. His 70 off 46 against England in the warm-up match was the highlight.

With thousands cheering from MS Dhoni stand including the man himself, Ishan Kishan will have the opportunity to impress his idol. However, considering Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma are not keen on changing the winning combination, Kishan may have to wait for his opportunity. The only position that could open up is of KL Rahul if he is rested.

For Team India, Ranchi T20I will be a chance to wrap up the T20 series against New Zealand after a five-wicket win in the first T20 in Jaipur.
