The 1st match of the current ongoing 3 match One Day International (ODI) series is going on in Hyderabad where the Men in Blue is currently batting first.
While Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill open the inning for Team India, both Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav have also been included in the Playing XI.
As of writing this article, the Indian team have scored 138 runs after 23 overs and have lost 3 wickets. Captain Rohit Sharma scored 34 runs in 38 balls while Virat Kohli failed to deliver as he was dismissed for 8 runs only.
Surprisingly Ishan Kishan was promoted to number 4 in place of Suryakumar Yadav. However, the left-hand batsman who scored a double hundred vs Bangladesh, failed to deliver as he was dismissed for just 5 runs.
After this, Twitterati have shared their opinion on this. Many even mocked those who wanted Ishan Kishan to open the inning with Rohit Sharma instead of Shubman Gill, who is still on the pitch as of writing this.

Rajat patidar was better option for middle order! Ishan kishan will anyways play as a backup opener. pic.twitter.com/8Kw5nY4m5y— Cricket With Laresh (@Lareshhere) January 18, 2023
