The Indian team will play the third ODI against New Zealand on Tuesday. Team India has already won the series, so it is expected that the Indian team can come down with many important changes. Many cricket experts and former players have suggested that Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma should not play the third ODI. Why is this being said and if this happens then what kind of picture can be made, know…
The Indian team has won the three-match ODI series against New Zealand and is leading 2-0. The third match is to be played in Indore on 24 January. It is believed that the Indian team can land here with many changes, the players who have not got the chance yet can be included in the playing-11.
Veterans have given such advice
Some veterans including former Team India coach Ravi Shastri, former cricketer Wasim Jaffer have advised that Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma should take rest in this match. Instead of this one-day match, senior players should play a match of Ranji Trophy. This is because in February the Indian team has to play a four-Test series against Australia.

Former players have said this in view of the preparations, so that the senior players of Team India can be ready for this big challenge. However, this seems unlikely to happen. Let us tell you that after the ODI team, India also has to play T20 series against New Zealand in which senior players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have not been selected.
Seniors got rest so…
If players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj get rest in the third ODI, then a completely new team can land here. However, its expectation is very less. Apart from Rohit-Virat, Shami-Siraj are also very important for Australia Test series. In the absence of Rohit, Hardik Pandya can handle the captaincy of the team, while Rajat Patidar can get a chance to play in place of Virat Kohli.
On the other hand, players like Yuzvendra Chahal, Umran Malik have also not been able to play in this series yet. In such a situation, both of them will also have a chance to join the playing-11 in the third ODI and create a blast for Team India. Let us tell you that on January 24 there is the third ODI against New Zealand, while there are T20 matches on January 27, January 29 and February 1.
