Aakash Chopra has picked his preferred Indian XI for the second T20I against New Zealand on November 20, Sunday. He didn’t pick Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer in his team.

The first contest was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain.

“If I was asked to pick the team, I would go with two out of Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson as openers.”

“I will make Ishan and Samson as openers. Rishabh Pant hasn’t been good in the shortest format. He doesn’t open for his franchise,” he added.

He kept Pant instead of Shreyas Iyer at No.3. “Pant is a better player than Shreyas Iyer at No.3. Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya and Deepak Hooda will bat at No.4, 5 and 6 slots.”

He also included Washington Sundar, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj and Umran Malik.
