IND vs ZIM: 3 Indian Players Who Might Be Benched Throughout The ODI Series
3. Ruturaj Gaikwad
Ruturaj Gaikwad is the first Indian player on this list. Since Shikhar Dhawan is the skipper of India in IND vs ZIM ODI series and will play in all three games, he will be one of the openers for India.
Shubman Gill won the player of the series award in the previous ODI series against West Indies and might get more opportunities as an opener. Hence, Gaikwad might have to warm the bench in all three games against Zimbabwe.
