Virat’s enemy number-1 Jampa
Cummins’s name at number two
At number two comes the name of Australia’s Test captain Pat Cummins, who dismissed Virat Kohli seven times in 28 innings. India also has a quality spin attack. Kuldeep Yadav has been India’s best spinner this year with 11 wickets in five matches. Both become more deadly as soon as they get together with Yuzvendra Chahal.
Who will be Gill’s partner?
In the six ODIs played in the year 2023, Shubman Gill has scored 567 runs with three centuries and an average of 113.40. In the absence of Rohit Sharma in the first match, he will be under pressure to get the team off to a good start. A similar performance will be expected from him after his Test hundred against Australia in the fourth and final match at Ahmedabad. Ishaan Kishan may be made the opening partner of Shubman Gill.
world cup year
The 50-over World Cup will be held in India in October-November this year. India won its last World Cup on home soil in 2011 under the leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Keeping this in mind, similar success would be expected from the Rohit Sharma-led team. The Indian team has started this year on a flying note by winning all six matches in two separate ODI series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand.
