IND vs NZ LIVE – India PlayingXI 1ST ODI? Another series for Team India. Same old headaches for Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid. Given that both KL Rahul and Axar Patel are out of the NZ series, Ishan Kishan will make a comeback as the wicketkeeper in the first ODI between India and New Zealand. Kishan back in playing XI will mean only one thing and that is the ouster of Shubman Gill, despite the fact that he scored a brilliant century in his last ODI. The Kuldeep Yadav vs Yuzvendra Chahal battle will also continue and the Washington Sundar conundrum will be another talking point for team management.

Ishan Kishan or Shubman Gill?

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.

However, the Dravid-Rohit team must find a place for him. Another alternative at No. 5 is Shubman Gill, but the team management is unlikely to change his position given his recent opening records.

The alternative is to play world-number one T20I batter Suryakumar Yadav at position number four 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.

Kuldeep Yadav vs Yuzvendra Chahal

In this ODI World Cup year, the matchup has always been between Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav because India is very guaranteed to deploy at least one finger spin-bowling allrounder. Kuldeep might undoubtedly start the New Zealand series if Chahal still hasn’t recovered enough from the shoulder issue that kept him out of the past two ODIs against Sri Lanka.

If Chahal is able to play again, India would have to choose between the two wristspinners, which will be a difficult decision.

Chahal’s experience and slow legbreaks are still valuable, especially at home, despite the fact that he has given up runs in his most recent few ODI appearances.

Kuldeep has also made his case, closing the divide between Chahal and himself by giving his motion more vigour, allowing him to obtain a bit more drift and a little more turn.

In his last three international games, he won two Player-of-the-Match accolades, which may be difficult to overlook.

Washington Sundar and World Cup Jinx

Offspin-bowling all-rounder Washington Sundar may be in line for sustained performance in the ODIs and T20Is against New Zealand as Ravindra Jadeja continues to recover from his injury and Axar takes a sabbatical for personal reasons.

In the ODI squad, Bengal’s Shahbaz Ahmed, a left-arm finger spinner, has been selected as Axar’s like-for-like replacement. However, Washington’s off-spin may be more effective against New Zealand’s left-hander-heavy lineup, which may include all of Devon Conway, Mark Chapman, Tom Latham, Michael Bracewell, and Mitchell Santner.

Since making his international debut in 2017, Washington has missed at least two World Cups due to injury. This is his chance to end the curse.

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