Zaheer Khan shed the significance of India’s upcoming T20I series against New Zealand. The Men In Blue spread out a new page in their history. It marks the first task of captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid. For the T20I series, the selection committee decided to rest key players including Jasprit Bumrah and Virat Kohli. Regardless of the fact, Khan stated it. Furthermore, the new captain-coach would have been the center of attention. After their ancestors stepped down, they worked together.
“India will be absolutely hurt about not making it to the semis. It will be the talk of the series. In many ways, this is turning a new page in Indian cricket. The series chatter and the focus will be on Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma. Also, where Indian cricket is going in terms of strategy and tactics,” Zaheer Khan said.
Moreover, New Zealand will look to avenge the 5-0 loss. In the T20I series, they suffered at home at the hands of Team India. The hosts will be on the lookout to settle their scores. Also, following a string of losses to the Blackcaps at ICC events. Dinesh Karthik praised the call to rest a number of senior players. The team’s poor showing at the T20 World Cup has been attributed to bio-bubble fatigue. Which makes the rotation of players paramount in the near future.
“The players have been rested rightly so. A few players have been on the road for far too long. The Shamis, Bumrahs, Kohlis, good to see that they are all taking a break. A very young lot has come in, some interesting names in the squad. Talent is of abundance in India, Rahul Dravid is going to be spoiled for talent, it is only how they group together and do it,” Khan said.
Lastly, Jasprit Bumrah was one of the first to address bio-bubble fatigue. which is one of the major names that has been rested. The Indian players have played constant cricket ever since the sport’s resumption. After a break induced by the COVID-19 pandemic.
