New Delhi: The first ODI of the three-match series will be played between India and Sri Lanka on Sunday. However, there is a discussion going on as to who will open for Team India in the first ODI. The Indian team has five such batsmen for the tour of Sri Lanka, who can play the responsibility of opening.
It includes the names of Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Nitish Rana. Now it has been learned that keeping the future in mind, Prithvi Shaw can get a chance to open with Shikhar Dhawan.
According to a report in InsideSport, Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan will open in the first ODI while Devdutt Padikkal and Ruturaj Gaikwad will have to wait for their chances. By the way, Devdutt Padikkal is believed to be the future of India, who has the ability to play in all three formats.
However, right now all the focus is on Prithvi Shaw as Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri can call him to join the Indian team in England. This is the reason why the team management wants to see him perform on the international stage before being relegated to the core team.
t20 world cup contenders
A team source from Colonco said, “Prithvi Shaw scored a lot in the domestic season. There is a great understanding between Dhawan and Shaw as both open for the same team in the IPL. I am very sure that only Dhawan and Shaw will open in the first ODI to be held on 18th July. I think both Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devdutt Padikkal will have to wait for their chance.
Let us tell you that in the IPL, Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw did a great job and the opening pair of both was a hit. In the suspended 2021 IPL, both Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw had scored more than 300 runs. Shikhar Dhawan had kept the orange cap with him. By the way, Prithvi Shaw is also certain to get a chance at the opening because he is a contender for a place in the T20 World Cup.
