New Delhi: Under the captaincy of Shikhar Dhawan, Team India has to face in the 3-match ODI series against Sri Lanka from tomorrow. For this series, many young players have been given a place in the team. But the biggest question is being raised on which batsman will be given the responsibility of opening with Shikhar Dhawan in the first match tomorrow.
Many contenders for the opening
There are many batsmen contenders to open the opening with Shikhar Dhawan in the first ODI against Sri Lanka tomorrow. The biggest name in this is that of Prithvi Shaw. Shaw has done well in the recent times and he has been consistently opening for Delhi in the IPL with Dhawan. Shaw, who was out of Team India due to poor form, has once again made his place with good form. Everyone’s eyes will be on his performance.
Ruturaj Gaikwad is also an option
Apart from Shaw, along with Dhawan, Ruturaj Gaikwad can also handle the responsibility of opening. Gaikwad opens for Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team Chennai Super Kings in IPL. Gaikwad’s performance in the IPL for the last few years has been very good. On the basis of his brilliant game, he got a place in the Indian team for the first time.
Will Devdutt Padikkal get a chance to debut?
Devdutt Padikkal can also get a chance to open with Dhawan in tomorrow’s match. Padikkal has done amazing batting for Virat Kohli’s RCB in the last two years. Padikkal knows how to play long along with playing fast. This young batsman can also get a chance to open the innings with Dhawan tomorrow.
