Ruturaj Gaikwad Unlikely To Play New Zealand T20I Series Due To Wrist Pain

Published on

Indian Cricket Team is all set to lock horns against New Zealand in a 3 T20I match series starting from 27th January (Friday). Senior players like Virat Kohli & Rohit Sharma have been rested in order to manage their workload ahead of Australia Test Series.

Mitchell Santner has been appointed the skipper of Black Caps which is quite surprising as he doesn’t have any prior experience. The visitors would be keen to take revenge for the T20I series defeat in New Zealand where India won the 3 T20I series by 1-0 in November 2022.

Ruturaj Gaikwad Ruled Out of T20I Series

Ruturaj Gaikwad has complained of wrist pain and it looks unlikely that the batter would play against New Zealand. The batter was in discomfort during Maharashtra vs Hyderabad Ranji Trophy match. BCCI is yet to announce the replacement and his exclusion. Ruturaj was a part of the Sri Lanka T20I Series but didn’t play a single match as Shubman Gill was handed his T20I cap.

Exciting Contest on Cards

Under the leadership of Hardik Pandya, we witnessed a fearless brand of cricket against Sri Lanka where he was the bowler’s captain. The flamboyant all-rounder would be well aware of the fact that New Zealand would be a completely different ball game where they have got powerful hitters present.

All eyes would be on Ish Sodhi as the leg spinner’s 4 overs are quite decisive. He must be used in 3 spells as he has the knack of picking up wickets. It would be interesting to see how Kiwis fare against the duo of Kuldeep Yadav & Yuzvendra Chahal as the duo can create havoc with their foxy variations.
