The three-match ODI series between team India and New Zealand will start from January 18. The first match of the series between the two teams will be played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad. At the same time, a big change will be seen in the form of Washington Sundar in Team India against the Kiwi team. Actually, Sundar Akshar can be included in the team instead of Patel. Akshar has taken leave for personal reasons in the ODI and T20 series against New Zealand.
In the absence of Akshar Patel, Washington Sundar will be seen playing as an all-rounder in the Indian team. Sundar was also part of the team in the series against Sri Lanka, although he failed to get a chance in that series. But now, after Akshar Patel’s absence from the ODI and T20 series against New Zealand, Sundar is expected to get a chance in the team’s playing XI.
Washington Sundar is a very talented all-rounder from India. He also demonstrated this by performing brilliantly with both bat and ball in the ODI series against Bangladesh. On the other hand, after the T20 World Cup, Washington Sundar played amazing innings with the bat for the India team, which toured New Zealand. Sundar also likes to play against the Kiwi team. In such a situation, he can become a trump card for the Indian team against New Zealand.
