With the T20 World Cup set to take place later this year, the Indian selectors have given a chance to the young players who have made it to the IPL 2022 season. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishant Kishan are expected to play as openers while Shreyas Iyer, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Venkatesh Iyer and Dinesh Karthik will play in the middle order. Herschelle Patel and Avesh Khan, along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, are likely to bowl in the powerplay with the new ball. With the injury of Kuldeep Yadav .. while the spin burden will not fall on Chahal .. news is coming that Akshar Patel will be sharing the ball with him.
Sunrisers Hyderabad fast bowler Umran Malik, who bowled at 157 kmph in the IPL 2022 season, will no doubt play in today’s match. Head coach Rahul Dravid has already made it clear that he will have to wait for a place in the final squad. Punjab Kings pacer Arshadeep Singh is also likely to be on the reserve bench. Captain Hardik Pandya, who captained the Gujarat Titans to victory in the IPL 2022 season, will return to the team several days later.
