Dubai: The T20 World Cup match will be played between India and New Zealand from 7:30 pm today. The great match is because this match will be like a quarter final, in which the way of the losing team to reach the semi-finals will become even more difficult. Virat Kohli’s captaincy will be tested in this match. India will have to win the match against New Zealand at any cost to stay in the tournament. India’s job will become very easy as soon as they beat New Zealand. Then he has to play matches against weak teams like Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia. India will reach the semi-finals by winning their next 3 matches against the weaker teams. There can be 3 big changes in Team India for the match against New Zealand. Let’s take a look at those changes:
1. Bhuvneshwar Kumar
Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s team does not make it to the playing XI of India. Due to the poor performance of this player, Team India has to pay the price by losing the match. In the T20 World Cup match against Pakistan on Sunday, poor performance of Indian fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar was seen, which also became the reason for the defeat of Team India. In this match Bhuvneshwar Kumar conceded 25 runs in 3 overs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar did not even get a wicket during this period. Talking about Bhuvi, he took 6 wickets in 11 matches of IPL 2021. His economy was 7.97. The Pakistani batsmen did not leave any chance to hit Bhuvi’s balls. Shardul Thakur can be given a chance in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the match against New Zealand. Shardul Thakur is an expert in showing wonders with the ball and the bat. Shardul Thakur has won the trust of the selectors with his excellent performance in IPL 2021. He played 16 matches for Chennai Super Kings (CSK), in which he has taken 21 wickets at an average of 25.09 and an economy rate of 8.80. His best bowling figure was 3/28. With the presence of Shardul, the lower order will be strengthened. Talking about the performance of Shardul in the last 2 years, he was the highest wicket-taker fast bowler. He took 23 wickets in 14 innings.
2. Suryakumar Yadav
Suryakumar Yadav is proving to be a burden for Team India. The flop show of this player has been going on for a long time, due to the poor form of this player, India has to face defeat for the first time in the T20 World Cup match against Pakistan. Suryakumar Yadav was given a chance in this match at an important batting position like No. 4, but he broke the trust and got out after scoring 11 runs. Now it seems that Virat Kohli might not give a chance to Suryakumar Yadav in the entire T20 World Cup tournament. In place of Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan has claimed a place in Team India’s playing XI with his quick batting. If Ishan Kishan plays, he can be sent to open with Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul can be shifted to number four from the opening.
3. Varun Chakraborty
Varun Chakraborty was included in the playing XI in place of Ashwin in the match against Pakistan, but this decision of captain Virat Kohli proved to be wrong. Varun Chakraborty had conceded 33 runs in the bowling of 4 overs in this match and did not get a single wicket. In the match against New Zealand, Varun Chakraborty may be discharged and R Ashwin may get a chance. Former Pakistan opening batsman Salman Butt made fun of Varun Chakraborty. Butt said on his YouTube channel, ‘Varun Chakraborty may be a mystery bowler, but he is no surprise to us. Every kid bowls like this in the streets of Pakistan, where bowlers try finger tricks and different variations with the ball.
