India defeated Pakistan in a nail-biting match on Sunday, giving them a winning start in their ICC T20 World Cup 2022 campaign. On October 27, they will face the Netherlands in their upcoming game. On Thursday at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG), India’s second game of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 will take place against the Netherlands.
One would anticipate Team India to rotate its lineup against the Netherlands in order to keep players fresh for the South Africa match. But according to bowling coach Paras Mhambrey, there will be no player rest. Rohit Sharma may give Yuzvendra Chahal a chance, though, since the Sydney surface is on the slower side.
“Hardik wants to participate in every game. That is crucial. Additionally, we are not considering who should take a break; no specific player is in mind for this. Hardik is a key member of our team. He brings a lot of harmony. He is batting as well as bowling. Rest is not even up for debate. Every game matters, according to Mhambrey.
There won’t be any changes to India’s Top 4 since Rohit Sharma prefers some consistency. A possibility to consider is Rishabh Pant at No. 5, despite his recent poor performance. If the team administration chooses to rest Hardik Pandya for one game, Deepak Hooda may also contend for the position.
Axar Patel was positioned at No. 4 in the batting order by Team India captain Rohit Sharma as his team pursued 160 to win. India lost their first four wickets for just 31 runs, rendering the venture a complete failure. The top of the order was severely lacking a left-handed hitter.
For their next ICC T20 World Cup 2022 encounter against the Netherlands at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Thursday, captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid are pondering whether to include Rishabh Pant in the starting XI (October 27). Dinesh Karthik, the team’s designated specialist wicketkeeper, took Rishabh Pant’s position in the playing XI against Pakistan.
Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin were India’s two spin options when they faced Pakistan at the MCG. Spinners did not have a fantastic day because to the wicket’s favouring of the seam. But Ashwin still succeeded in keeping his goals in sight, returning with efficient numbers of 0/23 in 3.
Sydney surfaces, though, have generally proven fair to the spinners in contrast to MCG.
In addition, India could want to give Yuzvendra Chahal a chance in lieu of Axar Patel, who wasn’t particularly effective against Pakistan in the first game.
Harshal Patel’s time on the sidelines as a fast bowler would likely be extended as Bhuvneshwar, Shami, and Arshdeep take over as India’s pace bowling leaders.
