New Delhi, Online Desk. Ind vs NZ 1st Test: A two-match Test series will be played between India and New Zealand from Thursday 25 November at the Greenpark Stadium in Kanpur. This is New Zealand’s first series in the new cycle of the ICC World Test Championship, while the Indian team will play its second series. In this test match, a player can make his Test debut for India. This player is none other than Shreyas Iyer, the middle order batsman.
Shreyas Iyer, who made his limited-overs debut a long time ago and has been playing ODI and T20 cricket for Team India for a long time, has been selected for the first time in the Test series against New Zealand. It is believed that Shreyas Iyer can get a chance to debut in his very first series. The reason behind this is the absence of captain Virat Kohli and the benefit of this can be given to batsman Shreyas Iyer, whom he is going to try to capitalize on.
Actually, Virat Kohli bats at number four in the test match and he has been rested for the Kanpur test match. In such a situation, which batsman should be given a chance in his place, it is going to be for the team, but the best option is Shreyas Iyer. His batting technique can come in handy in Test cricket. Although India definitely have the option in the form of Shubman Gill and Suryakumar Yadav, Shubman Gill has so far been tried as an opener.
At the same time, Suryakumar Yadav is also new in Test cricket and he too has not made his debut. Apart from this, he has not been included in the team yet, but he has reached Kanpur as an additional player. In such a situation, captain Ajinkya Rahane and head coach Rahul Dravid will have to choose whether to choose Shreyas Iyer in place of Virat Kohli or Suryakumar Yadav. Apart from this, opener Shubman Gill can also be pushed down.
