Mumbai, July 17: The ODI series between India and Sri Lanka will start on Sunday. Though Team India’s playing XI for the first match is almost certain, one place is a headache for captain Shikhar Dhawan and coach Rahul Dravid. In the first match, the team will have a hard time deciding whether to play Sanju Samson as the wicket keeper or Ishan Kishan.
Ishan Kishan got a chance in the T20 squad against England. Ishant Kishan was named Man of the Match for scoring a half-century in his first match. So Sanju Samson got a lot of opportunities in the Indian team, but he could not seize this opportunity. Sanju Samson was dropped from the team for batting too aggressively. He scored 83 runs in 7 T20 matches at an average of 11.8. Ishant Kishan scored 60 runs in 2 T20I matches with the help of a half-century.
According to media reports, Sanju Samson could be given a chance in the first ODI against Sri Lanka. If Samson is given a chance, it will be his debut in ODI cricket. Sanju Samson is also in good form. In IPL 2021, he scored 277 runs in 7 matches at an average of 46.16, including a century.
Ishaan Kishan’s poor form
Ishaan Kishan had to struggle in IPL 2021. The left-handed batsman scored 73 runs in 5 matches at an average of just 14.60. Looking at Ishaan Kishan’s form, the team can trust Sanju Samson.
India’s potential team for the first ODI
Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav, Manish Pandey, Sanju Samson, Hardik Pandya, Krinal Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Chahar
