New Delhi. Ishan Kishan has scored a double century in ODIs. He made history last month against Bangladesh. After this, he did not get a chance in all the three ODIs against Sri Lanka. Team India is currently playing the ODI series from New Zealand. Shubman Gill scored a double century in the first match and the Indian team was successful in winning the match by 12 runs. The Indian team is ahead 1-0 in the 3-match series. The second match is to be played in Raipur on 21 January. The team led by Rohit Sharma would like to win this match and capture the series.
KL Rahul is not playing in New Zealand series. He has taken a break due to marriage. In his place, KS Bharat has been included as wicketkeeper. He was a part of the Indian Test team for the first time, but due to Rishabh Pant, he did not get a chance to make an international debut. Now with Ishaan, he hardly gets a chance in the ODI series. Ishaan and Bharat are also involved in next month’s Test series against Australia. Ishaan is likely to play in this series as well.
