Virat Kohli registered an unwanted record as a captain after India suffered a humiliating 10-wicket loss to Australia in the first One-Day International (ODI).Virat Kohli registered an unwanted record as a captain after India suffered a humiliating 10-wicket loss to Australia in the first One-Day International (ODI) on Tuesday. Virat Kohli became the first Indian captain to record 10-wicket loss against Australia in ODIs. In ODIs, India had previously suffered a 10-wicket defeat to New Zealand (1981), West Indies (1997), South Africa (2000) and South Africa (2005). With the loss, India also conceded a 0-1 lead to Australia in the three-match series. However, the hosts will have a chance to bounce back in second ODI in Rajkot.In the series opener, Australia captain Aaron Finch and David Warner hit brilliant centuries to forge the highest Australian partnership against India as they chased down 256 runs with 12.2 overs to spare.Asked to bat, India made a slow start to their innings and lost Rohit Sharma early. Virat Kohli's idea to step down the order also did not pay off as he was dismissed for 16 runs by Adam Zampa. At a moment, India did not look like crossing the 250-run mark, but some resilience on top of the order by Shikhar Dhawan (74) and important cameos by Rishabh Pant (28) and Ravindra Jadeja (25), saw them put up 255 runs on board.In the second ODI, Virat Kohli might alter the playing XI, in search of a series-saving victory.Read More: Australia tour of India, 2020 schedule, team player,live scores

But due to paternity leave, this was not possible.Ravindra Jadeja is the third-highest paid cricketer.Rohit Sharma is not in the top fiveIndian Vice-Captain Rohit Sharma has yet to find a place in India's top five income countries this calendar year.

Indias playing XI for 3rd Test: 1 place 4 contenders Siraj, Pandya, Kuldeep & Sundar?

  • pitchhigh
  • 315

Heading into Test 3 against England, India has a lot to think about when it comes to picking the eleventh man in the eleventh game. The third round will be a day/night pink ball match at Ahmedabad Baker Stadium which opens up different possibilities as the conditions are not so simple. According to the sources, the team management has not yet decided whether to play 3 rotors or 3 pacemakers in the third test. For this reason: Kuldeep Yadav, Washington Sundar, Hardik Pandya, and Muhammad Siraj have been asked by the team management to remain ready for the match.India’s Playing XI for 3rd Test:Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, R.Ashwin, Axar Patel, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah Fight for 11th Spot between – Kuldeep Yadav, Washington Sundar, Hardik Pandya, and Mohammed SirajIndia vs England 3rd Test – Why so much uncertainty over playing XI?Reason: In the second test in Chennai, where the wicket was a band controller, India came out with three spindles and two pacemakers. But the day/night test is a different game. Not only does the SG ball have a thick lacquer coating to prevent wear and tear, but the field is also expected to have some turf to hold it together for five days.All this points to a snacker's help, at least for the first day. But if the pitch is set up in such a way as to assist spinners like the first two tests in Chennai, it would be preferred to use the third rotor, which can provide the depth of hitting. There are three options: Kuldeep Yadav or Washington Sunder.For a simple and fourth option, India has to choose between Hardik Pandya or Muhammad Siraj, and Umesh Yadav has a choice in the eleventh.PINK Ball Test – 3rd Spinner or the 3rd Pacer in Indian XI?With Ravindra Jadeja absent due to injury, the selection of the Indian team was a nuisance. In his absence, the main question was about who would partner with Ravichandran Ashwin. Before the third test, it can be assumed that India will present Ashwin and Axar Patel, who passed the second test. But the option to place a third roulette game cannot be ruled out.Kuldeep Yadav: Kuldeep's contribution to India's victory in the second Test was very limited. He only threw 12.2 exaggerated and closed two windows. With the bat, he fell on the flop, scoring three runs. But it is only vertigo on the team, and it might come in handy in day/night conditions.Washington Sunder: One of the options India could go along with, the Washington Sunder is a player who can strike well to provide India with a depth that reaches into India. If Sayed Mushtaq Ali Cup matches were considered, Motera Stadium could be easy to turn, meaning that aside from Ashwin and Patel, Sander might be the other option.- Indian bowlers got 19 wickets per match and they all went with pacemakers.- Indian spinners Ashwin & Jadeja only fired 7 savers in 2 rounds with no success.Third pacer slot:Here the circumstances are at stake. Since the test is a day/night thing, dew can be a factor like the lawn on the court. Furthermore, the only day/night test in India in Eden Gardens against Bangladesh showed that the locksmiths rule the ball with the pink ball, returning 19 fields for the match.With Muhammad al-Shami injured, as well as Bumrah and Ishant Sharma, who will be playing their 100th Test, India can put in a third pacemaker as the hitting lineup is expected to remain the same unless they retire due to late injuries.Umesh Yadav: Umesh Yadav, one of the pacemakers featured on India's first day/night test at Eden Gardens, has an impressive record at home. In his last five home events, Yadav has won 33 wickets. But as he returns from the injury, it could be risky to press him too soon. However, it could still be the third-best pacemaker choice in India if the team management decided to opt for a specialized pacemaker and the players failed to make much progress.Hardik Pandya: Looking at bowlers who have limited hitting skills other than Ashwin, Pandya might be the perfect guy to enter the game XI. He can strike and he can be a pacemaker between half and he can play 10-15 games a day. But Pandya is also back from an injury and throwing 15 times a day could become a problem. If chosen, it will be after a long absence of more than two years.Also Read: INDIA vs ENGLAND 2nd Test: Ashwins solid century helps India set 482-run target for England

India Playing XI 1st T20 against England, big question mark over KL Rahuls place in XI

Rohit Sharma has returned to the Indian T20 as well as the Rishabh Pant form. So where does this leave Kuala Lumpur Rahul's 11th India center? Rishabh Pant's phenomenal return will lead to many interesting developments at the top of the ranking.The Pant's inclusion means that KL Rahul, who until a few months ago was a goalkeeper's first choice, is unlikely to be wearing large gloves. Both Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma were key players at the start of the match until recently, but Rahul's emergence as a strong white-ball specialist sparked the competition.Dhawan recently earned a score of 150 in the Vijay Hazare Cup for Delhi, and when it comes to Rohit, there's nothing to dispute.So where does team management fit in with Rahul, who was a successful player in the IPL? Will he be placed in the middle-ranking because Dhawan is not suitable for hitting less? These are two closely related questions and there will be a follow-up question in the answer.With Captain Kohli himself in third and two revolutionaries like Pant and multi-level player Hardik Pandya expected to play the big shots in fifth and sixth places, where would you best leave Rahul? The only place it can be assigned is number 4, but Shreyas Iyer and Suriyakumar Yadav are also fighting for a place.If one closely follows the XI player picking pattern, Surya, the emotional favorite, will have to wait for his turn because Shreyas has done nothing wrong.But when it comes to a three-way fight between Rahul, Shreyas, and Surya, the man from Karnataka defeats the boys from Mumbai with his combination of punches and the ability to shift gears.This means that among KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, and Surya, only one will make it to Indian Play XI.India Playing XI – Headache is a bowling combination too? Likewise, in the percussion section, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, once India's greatest white ball advocate, returns after a long break and will face a duo fight with Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur.For Bhuvneshwar, his experience and being a better Rami player in death compared to Shahar puts him in good shape, but he hasn't played much cricket except for some Mushtaq Ali matches.The same goes for Chahar, the tough bowler who excels at swinging but is more than just one trick with no contrast during the tenth stroke. Shardul is a cunning soccer player who can swing him at a fast pace and between the three of them, he can use the long handle to get the best spin.Yuzvendra Chahal, Washington Sundar, and Axar Patel are the three expected winners in the eleventh game on the Slow Cliffs of Motera. In another three-way fight, Thangarasu Natarajan, with his variety of yorkers, has a better chance to start compared to Navdeep Saini.In total, there are far too many good players and too little space for them all with three safe choices: Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja, and Jaspreet Bumrah who are already resting or recovering from injury.Once they return, that will be a major concern of management, but they won't mind.India’s T20I squad: Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Ishan Kishan (wicket-keeper), Yuzvendra Chahal, Varun Chakravarthy, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Rahul Tewatia, T Natarajan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini, Shardul Thakur.Also Read: Kieron Pollard hits Six 6s in an over against Sri Lanka

Ind vs Eng 1st T20: Virat Kohli confirms, Rohit Sharma-KL Rahul to open against England

With Rohit Sharma returning to the T20I, India captain Virat Kohli confirmed that his first partner would be KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan would be with the team as a third start.“We cannot accommodate all three openers in the playing XI. Out of Dhawan and Rahul, only one will find a place in the XI. KL (Rahul) and Rohit (Sharma) have been consistent performers. Those two will start,” Virat Kohli said at a hypothetical press conference ahead of India's first T20I match against England on Friday in Ahmedabad.India faced a dilemma in picking first place against England in the five-game T20I series, as Rohit's return to the team would mean Rahul or Dhawan are excluded. Dhawan was not, however, in bad shape, scoring half a century against Australia and following him by 153 in the Vijay Hazare Cup. But in Rahul, India, you get an exploding opener that can slow you down depending on the situation. Rahul's vector preservation abilities are an added bonus as well.“It’s quite simple, KL and Rohit have been performing at the top of the order for us and those two would start. If Rohit takes a rest or KL has a niggle or something Shikki (Shikhar Dhawan) obviously comes back as a third opener,” Kohli said.Virat Kohli's decision to go with Rahul in place of Dhawan was supported by former India batsman at VS Laxman and former coach MSK Prasad. Laxman said that given the T20 World Cup, Rahul would be a better pick despite Dwan's level.“It will be a tough question, as far as the selection of the second opener is concerned. There’s no doubt about that because Rohit Sharma is an automatic choice in white-ball cricket. I will still go with KL Rahul because over the last few months and years I think the Indian team management went with KL Rahul as an opening batsman and he has done really well in that position,” Laxman said on Star Sports’ Cricket Connected show.Ind vs Eng 1st T20: ‘Bhuvneshwar Kumar key to India’s plans’The other place already occupied in the starting line-up against England is Hovneshwar Kumar's pacemaker. Bovanishwar, returning from injury, will lead India's swift attack in the absence of Jaspert Bumrah and Muhammad Shami. Kohli said throwing the UP remains key to India's plans for the T20 World Cup to be held in India in October.“Bhuvneshwar is shaping up really well. He's back, he's in good shape. He has done very well to get back to his highs and looks like a smart worker, and we've seen him in the past. He continues to bring this experience to the field that will be vital to us.” Kohli said at the conference The journalist "has a clear understanding of what he wants to do in the future."Bhuvneshwar last played for India in the T20I series against the West Indies in December 2019 and was sidelined due to injury. But he returned to IPL and local cricket after his recovery.“He wants to contribute towards many more Indian wins in the coming months. Obviously in the T20 World Cup, we would need our most experienced T20 bowler and he is right up there with anyone else in the world in the start, in the middle, and in the death as well. He is a guy you can bank on and I am very glad to have him back. Hopefully, he can build strongly from here and be as ready as he is now for the World Cup,” Kohli said.Also Read: IPL 2021 DATES

Ind vs Eng 3rd T20: Ishan Kishan arrives, is it end of road for Shikhar Dhawans T20 World Cup dreams?

The 50 slopes of Ishan Kishan at the 2nd International T20 Meeting between India and England made Shekhar Dhawan's way back in the Indian T20 chart of things very difficult. Ishan has been talked about as a talent since his age-group days, but there was a small crack in his armor. The young man had difficulty knowing when to attack and when to defend. But all of this appears to be fading after he led India to a 7 wicket win with 56 of 32 impressive balls.India captain Virat Kohli, who collaborated 94 of 54 balls with the lefty hitter, was among the first to give Ishan the credit for the win. "A special reference to Ishan, the way he's struck," Kohli said in the presentation. "It completely changed the game. We were one for nothing. I tried to do my best, but then I took the game completely away from the competitors. Follow his instincts. Hit the quality at the start."Ishan's rise has put Dhawan in a very difficult position. The Delhi-born was the winner of the India match at ICC events, but with a decline in the form of new names making their way into the squad, the team leader may have to make very tough decisions in the coming days.Ishan Kishan arrives, where Shikhar Dhawan in Indian XI stands Dhawan's biggest advantage to India is his attacking style at the top, as well as the advantage of being left-handed.In comparison, Ishan Kishan is more aggressive in his approach. With him, the combination of left and right on top is still intactDhawan breaks down the bowlers on top and his temperament is top-notch. Kishan is capable of destroying attacks, but his temper will only be measured when he faces more difficult situations than he faced on Sunday.Ishan Kishan's ability to 6 hits is a huge advantage over Dhawan. His 30 games in IPL & 4 vs Eng at 2nd T20 are great proof of that.Another feature Kishan brings is his skill as a dedicated wicketkeeper. He could be a huge endorsement of Rishabh Pant.Duane clearly has a tough competition now with the arrival of Ishan KishanRelying on a game he mastered under the strict supervision of four-time Indian Premier League Champions (IPL) Mumbai Indians (MI), Ishan was the biggest team between India and England. Show all the qualities of the "X factor" that Kohli talks about often.“When you play in the IPL with as dominant as him, against the high-end bowlers, we saw him hitting the international speed bowlers with six top players,” Kohli said."He's a daring character. You should continue to support your instincts. We had a conversation in the middle where he understood and analyzed the game very intelligently. He knew he was hitting the ball really well, so he kept using his chances. But it was counted. He was not reckless. That's what you want to see at Youth… The attendance, it looks great, is still retreating but with the realization of the game situation and I think today that the counter-roles for him and our partner [94 rounds of 54 balls] were something the team needed and presented. The team.”Ishan Kishan’s arrival can be bad news for Rahul too?Rahul now faces stiff competition from Ishan. Karnataka's hitter has not been able to utilize his potential in the series yet. In the two matches he played, Rahul was back on a golden duck.Rohit, who missed his first two matches against England, will definitely be with the Indian national team for the T20 World Cup in October. But outside Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, and Ishan Kishan - the team leader will have to rule out 1. In the current scheme of things, Kishan will have little advantage over his big counterparts.Also Read: VIRAT KOHLI, ISHAN KISHAN SCORE BRILLIANT HALF CENTURIES, INDIA COMFORTABLY BEAT ENGLAND BY 7 WICKETS

India Playing XI for 4th T20: Will Virat Kohli persist with KL Rahul despite 3 failures?

  • Mar 18, 2021

  • 243

India team dropped 2--1 in the 5-match T20 series. One misstep, India will lose the series at home against England. This is why Indian captain Virat Kohli is in trouble. The decision to be made by Virat and the Indian Research Center has to do with KL Rahul's struggle.India v England: KL Rahul has had three failures: Virat Kohli now has to decide whether to continue with Rahul and remain involved in one of his most trusted lieutenants or move on to other options and save the series.While Virat Kohli and India coach Vikram Rathore supported Rahul on top, saying he had been the best hitter in T20 for the past 2-3 years, along with other players on the team, it would be tough to justify inclusion. In the eleventh play of the fourth T20."Those things change very quickly. For us, he's been a hero. If you look at their stats over the past two or three years, they are probably better than everyone else in world cricket in the T20s. One of our best hitters will still be with Rohit in the part." We have no worries there. T20 is a very instinctive game. We know that once you start playing positive and you get some shots, it's about five or six balls like this, and all of a sudden they return to that area, "Kohli said after the match.Rahul also had Rathore's endorsement. The Indian striking coach said Rahul was India's top hitter in T20 with an average of over 40 in the past year."Anyone can go through the lean phase. Last year, I think KL was our best hitter in the T20 format. He averages over 40 with a strike rate of 145. So three mistakes don't change that fact. He's probably the best hitter we have at this." He did well for us last year. I think this is the moment when we need his support as a team. I am absolutely sure that he will come out of this difficult phase that he is going through, "Rathore said at the post-match press conference.India Playing XI for 4th T20: Should KL Rahul continue?After the captain and coach's remarks, despite grades 1, 0, and 0, ITRC will likely continue with Rahul and Rohit Sharma in the lead. But if Rahul fails again and India loses, the same think-tank will have some tough questions to answer before the match.India Playing XI for 4th T20: Should Yuzvendra Chahal make way for Axar Patel?India vs England: While there has been a lot of talk about the inauguration of India, the performance of the Indian leader, Chahal, is now also subject to the scanner. Chahal was unable to simulate his performance in IPL for India. In his last 12 games by T20I, Chahal has averaged 43.6 and an economy of 9.27. In his third T20 against England, he came back with expensive numbers, conceding 41 points in 4 sums.This is not talking about Chahal being included in India's eleventh game for the fourth T20. Alternatively, with Washington Sundar performing well as a second-round, Axar Patel could lead the India cargo, especially after his rich exploits in the Test series against England. Although he played in 1st T20, he did not complete his quota, conceding 24 times in three runs without any wicket. But given Chahal's bad form on the show, Patel might wink in front of him.IND vs ENG: INDIA Likely Playing XI – 3rd T20Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Axar Patel / Yuzvendra Chahal, Shardul Thakur & Bhuvneshwar KumarAlso Read: Virat Kohli: Superb looking tattoos and their meaning
