The New Zealand match will be a very crucial one for Virat Kohli’s men as it is almost a must win match for Team India. A loss to the Kiwis may mean that India’s journey in the competition will be very tough and must rely on the results of other teams as well.

Aakash Chopra stated that the current five bowler combination is not the best, and if Team India is looking for the sixth option, then Shardul Thakur should be brought in for Hardik Pandya. But since it is not like for like replacement, he would rather play Hardik.

He continued that Ravindra Jadeja is a bowler who can give you 4 overs but is not a wicket-taking option like Yuzvendra Chahal, Rahul Chahar and Rashid Khan.

He also backed IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders’ star mystery bowler Varun Chakravarthy. But also questioned whether he is ready to be slot into the team yet.
