Mumbai: India thrashed Zimbabwe 3-0 in the ODI series with KL Rahul emerging as the star batsman. With the T20I series starting on June 18, a little bit of resistance from the opponent could test the other Indian batsmen who warmed the bench.
Let’s have a look at the batsmen who are potential match-winners but didn’t get a chance to have a swing.
Manish Pandey: He is another force among the new age cricketers from Karnataka; he slammed his debut ODI ton against Australia Down Under earlier this year. But could face only one ball in the ODI series against Zimbabwe and remained unbeaten on four.
MS Dhoni: The Indian captain’s fans in the African hinterland are surely disappointed for they couldn’t watch the helicopter shot yet. Being the senior-most in the unit, Captain Cool only kept wickets so far. The kids ensured he gets enough rest during India’s innings.
Kedar Jadhav: The 31-year-old, who scored a hundred in India’s last tour of Zimbabwe, did not get to bat this season. He would be keen to make a point to prove his consistency. He has the shots, he needs a chance.
