After winning the first match against New Zealand, the Hardik Pandya-led team will be eager to seal the victory on Dhoni’s home ground. Some senior players including regular captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli have been rested in this series. In such a situation, some new players who have joined the team will have full chance to show their strength.
Let’s have a look at 3 such Indian players who can impress everyone with their game in this match.

Like MS Dhoni, Ishaan Kishan also has this home ground. On his home ground, the young wicket-keeper batsman will be eager to please all the fans who have come to the stadium to watch the match by showing their skills with the bat. Despite scoring a double century against Bangladesh, Ishaan has not got a chance to play regularly in the playing XI. In such a situation, this series can prove to be very important for him.

2. Rahul Tripathi

In the recent T20 series against Sri Lanka, Rahul Tripathi got a chance to play for India. Even though he was not successful in playing big innings, he caught everyone’s attention with his aggressive attitude. Rahul’s fearless style and ability to play big shots makes him special. The right-handed batsman will be keen to do well in this series and cement his regular place in the team.

3. Yuzvendra Chahal

The two players we talked about so far are young, but in this series, everyone’s eyes will be on the experienced spinner of Team India, Yuzvendra Chahal. In the last few matches, Chahal has not been able to perform the way he is known for. From above, his fellow spinner Kuldeep Yadav is continuously performing well. In such a situation, the pressure will now be on Chahal. The three T20 matches against New Zealand could decide the leg-spinner’s future.

India’s probable playing XI:

Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan (WK), Rahul Tripathi, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya (C), Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Shivam Mavi, Arshdeep Singh, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal
