Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Indian one-day international team, is expected to make his comeback to the squad for the one-day international series that will be played against Sri Lanka.
Irfan Pathan, a former cricketer for India, is certain that Rohit would soon get back to his old self, despite the fact that there are still some concerns over the batsman’s condition and health.
Irfan was quick to suggest that Ishan Kishan should get the nod because of his recent heroics in the format, although Shubman Gill also remains a strong contender for the spot. When the topic of Irfan’s opening partner came up, Irfan was quick to suggest that Ishan Kishan should get the nod because of his recent heroics in the format.
Ishan and Shubman were chosen to begin the batting for India in the one-day international series against Bangladesh because Rohit was unable to participate due to personal reasons.
The fact that Kishan achieved a double century in the third and final game of the series ensures that his name will be written down in the annals of cricket history.
As a result, Irfan is of the opinion that the second opening berth, which currently belongs to Rohit, should go to Ishan rather than Gill.
“I genuinely think that at this point in time you need retain at least three openers in place, and for me, Rohit and Ishan come first, and then certainly Shubman Gill comes after that.
The two Twenty20 matches that Shubman Gill participated in did not go well, but he has the ability to be successful at one-day cricket, and he has played well in that format in the past.
I would start with Rohit and Ishan Kishan because Ishan Kishan has been playing some terrific cricket recently and hitting a lot of runs, but it is crucial to have him at number three because of how important his position is “Pathan made this statement on the Star Sports show titled “Follow the Blues.”
Even though there is still plenty of time until the ODI World Cup in 2023, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is said to have already agreed on a list of 20 players who will be tested before the major tournament that will take place at the end of this year.
