Indian Playing XI for 1st T20? Will Umran Malik play the 1st T20 in Delhi? That is the question on eveyone’s lips.

The answer would be UNLIKELY. With Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel and Avesh Khan in line-up, it seems Umran will have to wait for his chances. But at some point in 5 Match T20 Series, Umran Malik will surely get a look-in.

  • While it remains unclear on whether Umran will make his debut for Team India, his confidence will be high going into the series.
  • The likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel and Avesh Khan are all part of the contingent so it will be interesting to see whom does Rahul pick for the opening T20I.
  • Dravid has good fire power at his disposal and will also have a good headache in the form of Umran and other options.
  • However, it will be interesting whom does he pick with eyes firmly on his press conference at Tuesday.
