India is always planning for a balanced team and the major aspect to it is to have a righty-lefty companion. Other than that team India has always lacked for left-arm pacers as compared to what the Indian batters play against the Pakistani or Australians left handed pacers.
If team India had a playing XI, considering every player is an active player and not retired, and an Indian –
Rishabh Pant could lead the left-handed side and might also perfom well behind the stumps, along with deputy Shikhar Dhawan who is a great asset for team India.
The opening partner of Shikhar Dhawan will no doubt be prime time Ishan Kishan who is performing brilliantly for team India.
Devdutt Padikal can be a sensational one down batsman along with Pant to come at 4. Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel can hold an all rounding performance while Khaleel Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav, Jaydev Unadkat, and T Natarajan.
