After struggling with the bat for most of the time, the Indian team emerged victorious in the second T20 match of the series in Lucknow. The bowlers performed brilliantl
The pitch in Ahmedabad is expected to be much better and the batsmen are likely to get some advantage. Thus, the Hardik Pandya-led side must prepare well in order to put up a decent total on the board. From the bowler’s point of view, the match is going to be tricky as the pitch is not going in his favor.
So, do the Men in Blue need to tweak their squad and come up with something new for the match or go back to the same team that struggled in both the matches of the series?
The India star is likely to make a comeback in the U19 World Cup 2018 and open for the first time in international cricket. Both Prithvi Shaw and Shubman Gill have proved themselves in the shortest format of the game, but Gill’s form is a matter to be reckoned with at the moment. The 23-year-old has so far scored only 18 runs in two matches and thus, he is in dire need of improvement.
Shaw, on the other hand, has been in tremendous form and has played some scintillating cricket in the ongoing Ranji Trophy. If he continues to play in the same destructive manner, the Mumbai-born cricketer can cement his position as a dependable opening batsman for India in T20I cricket.
Stumper-batsman Ishan Kishan hasn’t done much so far and is very likely to play at number three in the next match and get demoted. He needs to prove himself in the third and final match of the series.
Flamboyant batsman Suryakumar Yadav has once again proved to be a game changer for India in T20 cricket. When the Men in Blue were under tremendous pressure in the second T20I, Yadav rose to the occasion and played a brilliant innings to rescue the team. He is currently the leading run-scorer of the series.
