IND vs NZ Playing 11: The India Vs New Zealand World Cup 2023 match will be played on Sunday, October 22 in Dharamshala. These two teams had met in the semi-finals of the last World Cup and the wounds of the defeat are still fresh in the minds of Team India fans. Now this team led by Rohit Sharma will try to avenge that defeat. However, Hardik Pandya’s injury has increased the tension for the team. Now many questions are being raised as to who will get a chance in his place in Team India.

Who will get the chance?
However, many veterans believe that there should be two changes in the team. If Hardik doesn’t play, both a batsman and a bowler are missing. In such a situation, if cricket pundits feel, then Suryakumar Yadav should be given a chance in place of Hardik. Whereas Mohammed Shami should be included in place of Shardul Thakur who is proving to be the weak link in bowling. That means two changes can be made against New Zealand accordingly. But do Rohit Sharma and the team management think so?

Will Ravichandran Ashwin get a chance?
Talking about the second option, the question is whether Ravichandran Ashwin will not get a chance again. Everyone knows that Ashwin has a great record against left-handed batsmen. There are many left-handed players in the New Zealand team. This aspect weighs heavily on Ashwin. But if we talk about the team combination, which is often the focus of Rohit Sharma and all the coaches of the team, then both Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja will play in any case. Had Hardik been there, he would have played the role of third fast bowler and Ashwin would have come in place of Shardul. But if Hardik is no longer there, the decision to go with two fast bowlers could be a costly one.
