India's playing XI could be in Delhi T20 against Bangladesh
Team India will remain strong even in the absence of Virat Kohli in the 3-match T20 series against Bangladesh. The command of this series has been handed over to Rohit Sharma. The first match of the series between the two is to be played on 3 November at Delhi's Arun Jaitley Stadium. Virat Kohli has been rested in this series. Apart from Virat, Hardik Pandya, Jaspreet Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Navdeep Saini are also not included in the team. This series will be a chance for the players to prepare for the upcoming World Cup T20.
Shivam Dubey has been selected for the first time in the team against Bangladesh. At the same time, Sanju Samson has returned. Shivam Dubey and Sanju Samson have been selected on the basis of the performance of the domestic tournament.
Let's have a look who can join India's playing eleven in the first T20 match to be held in Delhi:
Veteran Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan will take charge of the opening. Rohit is constantly in excellent form. Shikhar also knows that his partners will reduce their burden by making big scores. Of course Rohit's team's bowling attack will be weak, but despite this, India will come together strongly.
In the absence of Virat, KL Rahul can be included in the playing 11. He can bat at No. 3. Although he has lost his place in Test cricket, he has batted well in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. He has scored 598 runs at an average of 66.64. He was the third highest run-scorer in the tournament. Shreyas Iyer played well at number four. He would like to have a place for him in T20 as well. However, all eyes will also be on Rishabh Pant. Pant was dropped from the Test team due to poor shot play. There will be pressure on Pant, especially due to the presence of Sanju Samson. Sanju has recently scored a double century in Vijay Hazare.
Krunal Pandya is preferred over Ravindra Jadeja. Chairman of the selection committee MSK Prasad also said that both have the same qualifications. In the absence of Hardik Pandya, Krunal will have responsibility. Young all-rounder Shivam Dubey also received the award for his outstanding performances from India A and Mumbai. He got a call from the national team. This Mumbai all-rounder will give Rohit Sharma an additional bowling option. Washington Sundar would also like to perform well for Team India.
Yuzvendra Chahal played his last T20 against New Zealand in February. He will be the leading spinner in this T20 series. Chahal was not included in the squad against West Indies and South Africa to look into other options. Deepak Chahar will take charge in the absence of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. Khalil Ahmed has not done anything special so far, he would like to ensure his place in Team India with a good performance.
