The second match of the three-match ODI series will be played today at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad between India and the West Indies. The Indian team won the first match by 6 wickets, and by winning the second match, they will have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.
Who will be left out of Rahul’s comeback?
In the second match, Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul, Team India’s vice-captain, will return. With Rahul’s return, either Ishan Kishan or Rishabh Pant may be forced to the bench. Pant was dismissed after scoring 11 runs in the previous match, while Ishaan’s bat produced 28 runs. Pant was previously seen on the Africa tour looking for form. The team management can use Ishan Kishan as a wicket-keeper batsman in this situation.
Dhawan could be Rohit’s partner while Kohli awaits a century.
Corona has passed for Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer. As a result, both players are available for the second match. Dhawan can open with Rohit in the second match. Rahul, on the other hand, can be seen in the middle order.
Due to personal reasons, Rahul did not participate in the first match. Deepak Hooda, who scored 26 not out off 32 balls in the first match, could be out if they bat in the middle order. The management of the team does not want to change the order in which Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, and Suryakumar Yadav bat. This match is also significant for Kohli, who has been waiting two years for his 71st century.
