Hardik Pandya New Zealand vs India: The T20 series will be played between India and New Zealand from 18 November. Indian captain Hardik Pandya has reacted before this series. Pandya is extremely excited to see what the new core of players can do in the short series, which comes just a week after their T20 World Cup semi-final exit. In this series, India will be missing key players like regular captain Rohit Sharma, opener KL Rahul, star batsman Virat Kohli, experienced wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik and off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.
In his absence, opener Shubman Gill, middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer, fast bowler Umran Malik, off-spinner Washington Sundar, spinner Kuldeep Yadav, fast bowler Mohammad Siraj, wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson have been given a chance. He said, “The main players are not here. But at the same time, the players who are already here, they have been playing for India for about one-and-a-half or two years. Even they have got enough chances and have played enough at the international level.” time is spent.”
Hardik said in the pre-series press conference on Wednesday, “We are very excited for him. The new player is ready to play with a lot of enthusiasm and new energy.”
Hardik also felt that the upcoming T20 series will be important for new players to get selected consistently. He further said, “Every series is important. You can’t go into international matches thinking that it is not important. Yes, the World Cup is also important, but it is a different format, it is 50 overs. But it is important for a lot of players. An important series for them, in which they can stake their claim with a strong performance.”
Hardik also praised the Kane Williamson-led side which, like India, was ousted from the T20 World Cup at the semi-final stage. Martin Guptill didn’t even play in the T20 World Cup, yet he was in the semi-finals. We all know that New Zealand have been a great team over the years, who have always done well and always challenge you as a team.”
