Rohit Sharma on Team India’s Playing11: Team India captain Rohit Sharma held a press conference in Melbourne just before starting his campaign in the T20 World Cup 2022. In this press conference, he answered many questions about his T20 World Cup preparations and the first match against Pakistan. During this, in response to a question, he gave such a reaction, which was shocking.
In fact, during the press conference, when Rohit Sharma was asked a question about Team India’s Playing-11, he clearly said that the playing-11 will be decided according to the circumstances in every match. He said that the opposition team, pitch and weather are different in every match, so if he feels the need for a change in the playing-11, then he is ready for it.
This statement of Rohit Sharma was shocking because the main reason for the early exit of the Indian team in the Asia Cup 2022 was the continuous change in the playing-11. Till the Asia Cup and before that, the Indian team was constantly trying different team combinations. Cricket experts had called this strategy of the team wrong.
Team India’s playing-11 may be like this
Captain Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya’s place have been decided in the playing-11 of the Indian team. Dinesh Karthik is ahead of Rishabh Pant as a wicket-keeper batsman in terms of current rhythm. By the way, the claim of Pant cannot be denied. He is the only left-handed batsman in the top-6 of Indian batting, so if both Karthik and Pant are included in the playing XI, then the Indian team will have to use Hardik Pandya as the fifth bowling option.
If this happens then the team will be in the field with only one spinner (Yuzvendra Chahal), but if Pant is out then either Axar or Ashwin will get a place. In the fast bowlers, along with Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep Singh Singh’s place in the team seems to be fixed.
