In this match, two players made their debut in international T20 for India. Shubman Gill, who performed impressively in ODIs and Tests. Shivam Mavi, who attracted everyone’s attention with IPL, entered the ring in this match. Both of them were key members of the Indian team that won the Under-19 World Cup in 2018. Previously, both of them made their IPL debut in the same match for Kolkata. Mavi is the 100th player to play a T20 match for India, while Gill is the 101st player.
