In the T20 World Cup 2021, Team India will face New Zealand in an important match on the night of 31 October. Till date, India has not been able to win against New Zealand in the World Cup of quick cricket. In such a situation, if the Indian team at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium keeps alive their hopes of reaching the semi-finals, then Kohli and Co will have to change history. Kohli can make changes in the playing XI against the Kiwi team. It is believed that Shardul Thakur can get a chance in the team. At the same time, Virat is in a mood to show faith in Hardik Pandya once more.

Virat would not like to tamper with the batting order

Despite the flop show by the top order batsmen against Pakistan, skipper Kohli would like to take the field with the opening pair of Rohit Sharma and the informed KL Rahul. Rahul's recent form is superb and Virat himself is well aware of the fact that hitmen can single-handedly turn the game around. Suryakumar Yadav is also fully expected to get another chance in this important match. Ishan Kishan will have to wait for his turn now. In the first match of the tournament, only runs came off the bat of captain Kohli and Rishabh Pant.

Hardik will get another chance

Team India seems to be in a mood to once again repose confidence on Hardik Pandya, who is going through poor form, against New Zealand. Hardik has also started bowling in the practice session and he can also be seen bowling in this important match. Captain Kohli has told that the shoulder of the Indian all-rounder is also completely fine now. After the one-sided defeat against Pakistan, a lot of questions were raised about Hardik's selection in the team.

Shardul will enter the team instead of Bhuvi

Shardul Thakur can take the field against New Zealand in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who was seen deviating from his rhythm in the last match. Shardul's recent form has been excellent and he was also the highest wicket-taker for the champions Chennai Super Kings in the IPL. With the arrival of Shardul, the team's batting will also be a little stronger and he can bowl in the powerplay as well as in the death overs. Despite the fierce beating against Pakistan, Kohli would like to give one more chance to Mohammed Shami. On the other hand, in place of Varun Chakraborty, the team can show confidence in the experience of Ravichandran Ashwin.

India's Probable Playing XI - KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (Captain), Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Hardik Pandya, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Varun Chakraborty/ Ravichandran Ashwin.
