New Zealand will clash with India in three T20I matches on November 17, 19, and 21 at Jaipur, Ranchi, and Kolkata individually. It will be then trailed by two Tests launching from November 25 in Kanpur and from December 3 in Mumbai. In any case, it is presently been accounted for that India is probably going to rest its central participants for the T20I series against the Black Caps.
A portion of the key Indian players have been in the air pocket climate since the beginning of the World Test Championship last in June. It is perceived that any semblance of Jasprit Bumrah, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Mohammed Shami, and possibly a couple of more players would pass up the series. This along these lines implies that India may handle a youthful group against the Kiwis.
The squad selection can be vastly affected by the performances of the players in the IPL. Ruturaj Gaikwad, Avesh Khan, Venkatesh Iyer, Harshal Patel, and a few others who have exuded their sheer flair in the tournament might receive a green signal for this series.
-Most of the Indian players, the senior ones, have now been in three back-to-back bubbles for four months. Possibly after the T20 World Cup, you would want them to take a break and rejuvenate before the South Africa tour starting December end,- a source said
With Ravi Shastri-s tenure as team India-s head coach ending after the T20 World Cup 2021, the BCCI has been putting its thinking hats on for his replacement. However, as the search for a new coach will take a considerable amount of time, Dravid might be handed over the responsibility for this home series.
-We wanted the candidate whom we feel is best suited for the job to agree first (to apply for the job). We don-t want a situation where we get applications but no one is seen as ideal. It will be embarrassing for the board and for the candidates too. So it-s better to find a suitable candidate first, till then Dravid can be interim coach,- a BCCI official said.
