  • Sunday’s match between India and New Zealand
  • Bhajji suggests playing Rohit Sharma and Ishant Kishan as openers

Team India veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh has suggested that young Indian hitter Ishant Kishan be given a chance to open the T20 World Cup match against New Zealand on Sunday. Batting first in the first match against Pakistan last Sunday .. then the Indian team disappointed in bowling .. lost by 10 wickets to cousin. Against this backdrop .. Team India is hoping to win and recover in the match against Kiwis .. There are indications that the team will also enter the ring with changes.

Speaking on the latest India-New Zealand match, Harbhajan Singh said, “Ishan Kishan should be the opener in the match against New Zealand. What if Ishaan Bharat starts the innings with Rohit Sharma? TeamIndia can score runs as expected in powerplay. What if Ishant Kishan was at the crease for the first six overs? Not 40-45 runs .. 60-66 runs are likely to come. Ishaan is a destructive player. Every bowler is under pressure if he is at the crease. Virat Kohli is at No. 3 and KL Rahul is at No. 4.

KL Rahul has excelled as the opener in the IPL 2021 season. Ishant Kishan, on the other hand, also gave the Mumbai Indians a lightning start in the opener. But .. in the match against Pakistan, KL Rahul played 8 balls and scored only 3 runs .. Ishan Kishan did not even get a chance in the final team.
