In the first ODI against Sri Lanka, Prithvi Shaw and Ishan Kishan played a power-packed innings and won everyone’s heart with their performance. With T20 World Cup closing in, all eyes are on these players. The way Ishan Kishan and Prithvi Shaw performed in the first ODI against Sri Lanka, the selectors would definitely consider including them in the T20 World Cup squad.
The duo have emerged as strong contenders for the upcoming mega tournament and with their powerful show, many players would not be too thrilled. If Ishan Kishan continues with his performance, he may be considered to replace Shreyas Iyer in the T20 World Cup squad, who is out of the team due to injury. Shreyas Iyer has to bat at number four.
With Ishan stirring up trouble for Shreyas, Prithvi Shaw with his brilliant game may cause trouble for KL Rahul in the T20 World Cup. KL Rahul is the main opener for the Indian team. But Shaw’s present form can cost Rahul his place in the WC team.
