Shubman Gill or SKY?

KL Rahul is thriving in his new position at No. 5. In ODIs, he has been assigned to a wicketkeeper role. But without him in the NZ series, India lacks a wicketkeeper. Ishan Kishan, who has a double century to his credit, is the front-runner despite the addition of KS Bharat to the squad. Kishan will replace Gill for the opening spot.

With the opening spot filled, the Dravid-Rohit team have only No 5 spot that needed to be filled. Shubman Gill is a good alternative for No. 5 but the team management is unlikely to change his position given his recent opening records.

The next best thing is to play world-number one T20I batter Suryakumar Yadav at position number five and replace Shubman Gill with Ishan Kishan. But Shubman has made the selection process much more difficult with a century in the most recent game.

In KL’s absence, Suryakumar Yadav will get an extended run in the middle-order.

India’s updated ODI squad against New Zealand: Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan (wk), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, KS Bharat (wk), Hardik Pandya (vice-captain), Rajat Patidar, Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohd. Shami, Mohd. Siraj, Umran Malik.
