Former Indian opener and cricket expert Aakash Chopra has predicted Team India’s playing XI for the first Test against New Zealand. The Indian team, led by Ajinkya Rahane, will play the first match in Kanpur from November 25. There is a bit of pressure on the hosts as regular players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami have been rested in this series. However, after the first Test, Team India’s regular captain Virat Kohli will return. He will be available for the second Test to be held in Mumbai from December 3.

Aakash Chopra has given his reaction on team composition and strategy ahead of the first Test starting at Green Park in Kanpur. He said through the social media platform Ku App that five batsmen or six. Two spinners or three? Ishant-Umesh, Ishant-Siraj or Umesh-Siraj. These are important questions that Rahane and head coach Rahul Dravid will have to answer. I think the wicketkeeper slot in Saha’s favor will not be up for debate even though Bharat is also in the team.

Aakash Chopra selected Team India’s playing XI

Predicting Team India in a video shared on his YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra said that Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane will play the most important roles in this batting line-up.

The popular English commentator said, “Pujara and Rahane together will score more runs than the Indian openers. There was pressure on Pujara too but he played a brilliant knock in the second innings at Leeds, which was very good. Both the openers are also going to be new.

The former India cricketer also expects Kane Williamson and Tom Latham to make good contributions with the bat for the Black Caps. The former cricketer said that both Kane Williamson and Tom Latham are good players against spin, I think together they will score more than 125 runs in this match.

Let us tell you that Team India can field a new opening pair of Mayank Agarwal and Shubman Gill, while Shreyas Iyer can debut at No. Rahane and Pujara have also not been at their best recently and the Kiwi bowlers can certainly take advantage of that.
