India Playing XI vs New Zealand 1st ODI: The first match of the three ODI series between India and New Zealand will be played on 25 November. This match between the two teams will be held in Auckland. Regular captain Rohit Sharma has been rested for this series. In his absence, Shikhar Dhawan will captain Team India. Apart from Rohit, Virat Kohli will also not play in this series. This is the perfect opportunity to experiment with team management. In the first ODI, there is a war about who will get a chance to debut, Arshdeep Singh or Umran Malik. While Kuldeep Sen is also there as an option.
Umran can debut
Umran Malik was part of Team India in the T20 series played against New Zealand. But he did not get a chance to play in a single match. While on the other hand Arshdeep Singh participated in the T20 series. Apart from this, he also played in T20 world. Captain Shikhar Dhawan knows that Umran has been waiting for the opportunity for a long time. In such a situation, he can debut in the first ODI. On the other hand, fast bowlers have dominated the pitches of New Zealand. Umran has been bowling mostly at a speed of 150 km per hour in IPL. In such a situation, he can be effective for India in the ODI series.
Indian team for first ODI
If Arshdeep does not get a chance to debut in ODIs, then the playing XI of the Indian team may look something like this. Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Sanju Samson, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Umran Malik, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal.
