  • Rahul joining the team created problems for Shubman Gill
  • 3-match ODI series between India and Zimbabwe from 18th August

IND vs. ZIM: India has to play a three match ODI series against Zimbabwe on the same ground. In this series, the command of Team India is in the hands of KL Rahul. As soon as the BCCI medical team declared him fit for the match, he got a ticket as captain on the Zimbabwe tour in a hurry. Obviously, all this exercise was done to give him practice before the Asian Cup. In such a situation, Rahul would like to open the innings with Shikhar Dhawan in the upcoming matches. If Rahul starts the innings then Shubman Gill, who opened this opening with Dhawan on the West Indies tour, could go on to bat at number three.

Shubman Gill in trouble with KL Rahul’s return

The bottom line is that Rahul’s return has created different kinds of difficulties for young starter Gill. Gill batted brilliantly in the ODI series in the West Indies. He was named Man of the Series after his 64, 43 and 98 match-winning shots not eliminated.

Giants in favor of the opening of KL Rahul

Former National Teal selector Devang Gandhi said on this subject: “I think the team management is preparing Shubman in the right way. He has done very well in the ODI series on Caribbean soil. I think the team is preparing the players in such a way that they can hit at any position. Shubman may have to get to number three for this series.

Former Indian player Deep Das Gupta also agreed with Devang’s words. He said: “It’s hard for a player after having such a good rhythm. The team’s goal at the moment will be to prepare Rahul as a starter for the T20 Asia Cup. He should have plenty of time to bat. I think this arrangement will be for a short period of time, as I think Shubman is being groomed as an ODI World Cup starter.”

Gill is not part of the Asian Cup

At present, the first priority for the Indian team is the Asian Cup and then the T20 World Cup. Gill is not part of the team in the shorter format of the game. In such a situation, before the Asian Cup starts on August 27, the team management would like to give full batting opportunity to KL Rahul, who is returning from injury.
