Umran Malik and Sanju Samson

Hardik Pandya to captain young team in India’s trip to New Zealand in 2022 which includes three matches T20I series there. It’s time for the young guns to put on their best show without Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul.

  2. On Friday, the series begins in Wellington.
  3. Abundance is an issue for Hardik and his VVS coach

In their first international series following the conclusion of the 2022 T20 World Cup, India take on New Zealand.

The team appeared to be doing well for most of the competition, but in the semi-final against a marauding English team, they looked listless and lost by a score of 10 wickets. The top order’s attitude towards the first 10 overs was one of many issues with the way India played the game that was brought up.

India will start with a new top 3 because the three players who participated at the time – captain Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli – are all unavailable.

Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan will no doubt be their frontrunners, but India can also choose to go with Sanju Samson, who is used to batting in the top order in T20 cricket, or he can give Rishabh Pant a chance for the position .

While Panting he is nearly unstoppable in Tests and has recently proved his worth in ODIs as well, his inconsistent play with the bat making it difficult for him to gain a place in the T20I batting lineup.

However, a number of former cricketers have argued that India can make the best use of Pant’s undeniable skills if they bat in the best order. If India decides not to, it will have to beat it in the lower-middle order, where it has struggled to produce so far.

However, if they wish to offer the latter playing time, they can play against Deepak Hooda or Samson, who prefer those places in the starting lineup.

Washington Sundar, who is expected to return, and Yuzvendra Chahal will almost certainly play in all three games in the series. I

It is hard to imagine Arshdeep Singh and Umran Malik being ignored. Despite his poor performance in the T20 World Cup, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is also expected to play. Finally, captain Hardik Pandya and opener Suryakumar Yadav will play from seats 4 and 5 respectively.
