IND vs NZ: These 3 players were Virat Kohli’s favourites, but may have to sit under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma


New Delhi: After getting out early in the T20 World Cup, Team India will now face New Zealand in the T20 series starting on November 17. The special thing is that in this series, the Indian team will be captained by Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul will be the vice-captain of this team. It is certain that after leaving the captaincy of Virat Kohli, some big changes are certain in the team. In such a situation, in this report, we are going to tell you about those three players who were the favorite of Virat Kohli, but it will be very difficult to find a place in Rohit’s captaincy.

1. Shreyas Iyer

Shreyas Iyer is one of the best batsman in the middle order. But earlier this year when Team India faced England in a home series, Iyer got injured during fielding. Since then, Suryakumar Yadav started getting a place in Team India continuously. Suryakumar Yadav plays for Mumbai Indians under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma and now his place in the team is confirmed under the captaincy of Rohit. But there are bound to be difficulties for Shreyas Iyer. During the T20 World Cup, only Suryakumar Yadav was given a chance in place of Iyer. In such a situation, Rohit would definitely like to give this special player a place in the team continuously.

2. Yuzvendra Chahal

Team India’s star spin bowler Yuzvendra Chahal is one of the very special players of Virat Kohli. Chahal was also dropped from the team in the T20 World Cup 2021. He was replaced by Rahul Chahar. Rahul has been seen playing for Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians for a long time. In such a situation, even after becoming the captain, Rohit will definitely give him a constant chance in the team. At the same time, there may be a break on Chahal’s career. Rohit will give place to his favorite players in the team and Rahul’s career can definitely be made in the coming time. Chahal has been given a chance in the T20 series against New Zealand, but it will be interesting to see whether he gets a place in the team or not.

3. Mohammad Siraj

Like Chahal, Mohammad Siraj is also one of the very special players of Virat Kohli. Siraj has completely cemented his place in Test cricket. But after his good performance in the IPL, he also had a chance to make a place in the seamy over side of Team India. However, it is very difficult to make this possible after Rohit became the captain. In limited overs cricket, Siraj has not played many matches for Team India and it seems very difficult to be selected even further. While playing first for Team India, Siraj’s record has been very poor.
