A big selection headache looms over the Indian cricket team as it gets ready to take on New Zealand in the first ODI of the series. The injury of Shreyas Iyer has now opened a few doors for the team, with the two main questions being – who will open with Rohit Sharma and who will bat at No 5? Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan are both contenders for the opening slot, with Suryakumar Yadav being the front-runner for the No 5 position. KL Rahul, who has flourished in his new role of opener and wicketkeeper, is out due to injury. Ishan Kishan is the frontrunner to take his place as wicketkeeper, with KS Bharat also in the squad. The team management has to decide between Shubman and Ishan to open the innings and whether to include Shardul Thakur or Washington Sundar. Follow IND vs NZ LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN.
