IND vs SL: 3 Indian Players Who Will Warm The Bench Throughout The T20 Series
3. Ruturaj Gaikwad
Ruturaj Gaikwad is the first Indian player who might be benched throughout the IND vs SL T20 series. Since Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill are part of the T20I series against Sri Lanka, Gaikwad might not be picked as an opener.
Gaikwad last played a T20I game against Ireland in July 2022. On the other hand, Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill have played for India in the recent series. Hence, they both might be preferred as openers.
