1 player forced the selectors

The ODI team that has been selected against Sri Lanka did not have the name of Shikhar Dhawan, who has been opening for the team for a long time. At the same time, Rishabh Pant, who was occupying the wicket-keeper’s place, was also shown the way out. The reason for the exclusion of these two is 1 player. Ishaan Kishan who fills the gap of both wicketkeeper and opener very well. Against Bangladesh, Ishaan created a ruckus when he scored an ODI double century on the spot after Rohit Sharma was injured.

big players clear

According to the need of the team, Ishaan Kishan fits perfectly. Apart from batting fearlessly in the opening, he also performs brilliantly behind the wicket. Pant and Dhawan were struggling to perform consistently for the last several months. After doing well in 1 match, this has been the story of both of them floping continuously. Ishaan will play as an opener and wicketkeeper in the playing XI. Due to this, an additional player can be given a chance. Along with the selectors, the coach and captain are also very happy with the performance of this youngster.
