New Delhi: Team India defeated England by 36 runs in the last match of the 5 match T20 series. With this victory, the Indian team won the series 3–2. Now India will face England in the ODI series from 23 March. Prior to this series, India has announced the team, in which a total of 5 batsmen, including Rohit Sharma, are contenders for the opening. In such a situation, a big question arises over team management, who will start the innings for India.
Shikhar Dhawan or KL Rahul?
One place for opening from India is Rohit Sharma. In such a situation, it will be important to see who gets down to support Rohit. The team has Shikhar Dhawan, who is believed to be the chief to open with Rohit. But Dhawan’s recent form has been nothing special. KL Rahul is also an option, but he was also badly flopped in the T20 series against England. Rahul was given a place in the team as a wicket-keeper batsman, but now in good form, Rishabh Pant has also returned. In such a situation, it is difficult to adjust Rahul even in the middle order.
Shubman Gill is also present in the team
Shubhman Gill, who performed well in Test matches for India, has now been given a place in the ODI series against England. Gill is a brilliant young player and he is considered to be a big star of India in the times to come. In such a situation, the team can also field them as an opener. But Gill has so far scored only 49 runs in 3 ODIs for India.
India won the T20 series after the Test
India defeated England in the second consecutive series against England on the current round. India beat England 3–1 in the first Test series. After losing the first match of the Test series, India made a strong comeback. India also defeated England 3–2 in the T20 series after winning the Test series. This is India’s sixth consecutive T20 series win. India will now face England in the ODI series from 23 March.
