  • Team India’s middle-order muddle is only well known, and perhaps reached a crescendo in 2019 when it became a key factor in their ODI World Cup semi-final exit. Nearly 12 different batsmen had been trialled at number four during the two-year experimentation phase before that tournament — all of it had come to nought with an inexperienced Rishabh Pant handed a job he couldn’t execute.

    New concussion rules were introduced in Test format as well last year. Australian batsman Steve Smith was replaced by Marnus Labuschagne on Day 5 of the second Ashes 2019 Test at the Lord's under the rules. Recently young Indian batsman Rishabh Pant also suffered from concussion after being hit on his helmet by pat Cummins.

    India will play five T20 Internationals, three One Day Internationals and two Test matches with Kane Williamson-led Kiwis between January 24 and March 4. “We are delighted to be among the sponsors for the New Zealand-India series,” said Robin Raina, chairman and CEO, Ebix. As per Raina, the tie-up with New Zealand is a reflection of their commitment for sports.

    Former India all-rounder Bapu Nadkarni, best known for bowling a record 21 successive maiden overs in a Test match against England, died on Friday, family sources confirmed.

    Eyeing a return to the Indian senior team, the 20-year-old Shaw struck 22 fours and two sixes during his blazing knock at the Bert Sutcliffe Oval. Shaw's knock will certainly excite the selectors as they pick the squad for the Test series in New Zealand. The first Test will get underway on February 21 at the Basin Reserve in Hamilton.

    Talk of possible travel fatigue after only arriving in New Zealand three days ago, did not eventuate as Virat Kohli's men hauled in New Zealand's 203 for five with Rahul making 56 and Iyer unbeaten on 58. New Zealand did not help their chances by bowling 10 wides and missing wicket opportunities with sloppy fielding.

    Making Rahul move up and down the order so regularly is not beneficial for him, or the team. At a time when India are tinkering with more than one position in the middle order, Rahul’s success should be used to plug at least one gap. If the team doesn’t think he is a long-term option as an opener, then the most elegant solution would be to nail him down at No. 4.
