New Zealand against India, 2nd T20I: Bhuvneshwar Kumar is not in R Ashwin’s T20I playing XI.

India vs. New Zealand: R Ashwin’s playing XI for India’s second T20I match does not include Bhuvneshwar Kumar or Sanju Samson.
Ravichandran Ashwin, the veteran Indian spinner, has left Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Sanju Samson out of his preferred Indian starting XI against New Zealand. Ashwin, who is not in the series, announced his preferred playing lineup before of India’s second T20I against New Zealand, in which he did not include any of the aforementioned players.
After the first T20I was rained out in Wellington, India will face New Zealand in the second. The team did not get to reveal their playing XI in the first match because the toss did not take place, but it was expected that the Indian youngsters who have been sitting out of the side would get their best shot under Hardik Pandya’s captaincy.
According to Ashwin, India’s best possible team lineup will be Shubman Gill opening with one of Rishabh Pant or Ishan Kishan, followed by Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, and Deepak Hooda in the middle order.
If Pant does not get to begin the innings, Ashwin believes he should bat in the middle order. Ashwin’s bowling attack consisted of three full-time pacers and one spinner. The fast bowling lineup was Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, and Arshdeep Singh, with Yuzvendra Chahal serving as the lone spinner.

Dinesh Karthik, India’s keeper-batter, has also backed Rishabh Pant as a T20I opener. In an interview with Cricbuzz, Karthik stated that the Indian squad is attempting to accommodate Pant into their first-choice playing XI but has not been able to do so. DK has stated of Pant’s batting abilities that the left-hander can really tee off in the opening overs when the field is confined by the powerplay.
