Shubman Gill to sacrifice own spot for Jaiswal, Samson, Dube in 3rd T20I vs ZIM | Pragativadi | Odisha News, Breaking News Odisha, Latest Odisha News – N.F Times

New Delhi: India captain Shubman Gill will have to slide down to accommodate Yashasvi Jaiswal in India’s XI for the 3rd T20I against Zimbabwe.

India’s World Cup-winning trio Sanju Samson, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shivam Dube have joined the squad and are available for selection for the third T20I against Zimbabwe on Wednesday. While Dube and Samson will walk into the side in place of Sai Sudharsan and Dhruv Jurel, Jaiswal’s selection is not straightforward. The flamboyant left-hander, chosen as a backup opener in India’s T20 World Cup squad, will face tough competition from Abhishek Sharma.

If India decide to field both Jaiswal and Abhishek then captain Gill will have to sacrifice his opening position and Ruturaj Gaikwad will have to slide down to No.4.
