In Ahmedabad, the fiery Indian opener Prithvi Shaw might return to international play. Shaw, who has yet to make a T20I run in the series, is likely to be selected in the Indian playing XI for Wednesday’s third T20 against New Zealand, which will decide the series. All signs point to Shaw replacing Shubman Gill in the Indian XI, according to sources within the Indian camp. During the practise, head coach Rahul Dravid and batting coach Vikram Rathour had a conversation.Before the toss, the team management shall decide who Ishan Kishan will open with.

This is an ODI World Cup year, therefore until the mega-event in OCTOBER in India, India will scarcely play any T20 international cricket. Coach Rahul DRAVID is eager to give Shaw a shot in Ahmedabad for this reason.

In Lucknow, India’s team featured four spinners, including two full-time leg spinners. However, the composition could alter in Ahmedabad depending on the pitch.

Arshdeep Singh might get back in the team.The final three games across all forms included pitches from Ahmedabad that were good as well as vindictive for batters.

It was a rank-turner in Tests, a two-paced wicket in ODIs, and a batting paradise in the final T20. Consequently, it is still unknown how the pitch will act on Wednesday.



Gautam Gambhir



Gautam Gambhir, a former India opener, believes that Gill’s “basic game” is better suited to ODI cricket than T20 cricket. However, Prithvi Shaw is a player whose “basic game” is more suited to the shorter format.

After the Lucknow pitch fiasco , let’s view the pitch report, statistics, and weather forecast for Ahmedabad from Narendra Modi Stadium.

The venue consists of five black dirt fields and six red soil pitches. Black soil pitches offer better bounce than red soil pitches, that have a propensity to wear out rapidly and suit spinners or slow bowlers. Overall, the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad is a good place to score in 20-over games.

On game day, the sky will be clear and the temperature will vary from 15 to 31 degrees Celsius. On the day of the game, there is no risk of rain, and a full contest is anticipated. There will be a 10 km/h wind and a 32% humidity level in the forecast.
