India vs New Zealand 1st ODI Hyderabad: A three-match ODI series will be played between India and New Zealand. Its first match will be played in Hyderabad on 18 January. It will not be easy for India to choose the playing XI for this match. There can be a debate about Suryakumar Yadav and Ishaan Kishan. Both these players are in form and have done well. At the same time, there can be an issue regarding Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav. It will not be easy for the selectors to choose the playing XI this time.
The Indian team has started preparations for the World Cup 2023 and in this sense the series against New Zealand will be very important. Ishaan Kishan surprised everyone by scoring the fastest double century against Bangladesh. He scored a double century in 126 balls. However, despite this, he did not get a chance in the ODI series against Sri Lanka. Shubman Gill came to open in his place. Now it has to be seen whether he enters the field as a wicketkeeper or not. He will also compete with Suryakumar. Surya had scored a century in Rajkot T20.
Team India’s spin bowlers Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal are also running in form. The selectors may face difficulty in choosing either of these two in the playing XI for the ODI against New Zealand. Kuldeep took 3 wickets in Kolkata ODI against Sri Lanka. While took 2 wickets in Thiruvananthapuram. Whereas Chahal took 2 wickets in Rajkot and one wicket in Pune. Both these were T20 matches. He took one wicket in ODIs. Even before this, both these players have performed brilliantly.
