Who will play in place of Shreyas Iyer, Wasim Jaffer told

IND vs NZ 2023 Wasim Jaffer predicts India playing XI

The first ODI of the series between India and New Zealand will be played today i.e. on 18 January.

From the first ODI, the Indian team has suffered a major setback in the form of Shreyas Iyer.

Iyer has been ruled out of the ODI series due to a back injury.

Rajat Patidar has been included in the team as a replacement for Iyer.

Now only one question would arise that who can be included in the playing XI in place of Shreyas Iyer in India's playing XI in the first ODI.

In such a situation, former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer has announced his playing XI (Indian Playing XI vs NZ) by tweeting. 

'Fan had vowed to marry Kohli only after scoring a century', now the man has fulfilled his promise

Wasim has included Suryakumar Yadav (Surya Kumar Yadav) in the playing eleven in place of Iyer in his playing eleven, while Ishaan (Ishan Kishan) has been included in the playing eleven as a wicket-keeper batsman.

In the playing eleven selected by Wasim, he has chosen Rohit and Gill as openers, Virat Kohli at number three, and Ishaan Kishan at number four. 

Washington Sundar has been included in Wasim's playing XI in place of Akshar Patel.

At the same time, Wasim Jaffer has advocated playing Kuldeep, Shami, Siraj and Umran Malik in the first ODI through his playing XI.

On the other hand, captain Rohit Sharma will be under watch in today's match.

Rohit batted brilliantly in the ODI series against Sri Lanka but could not score a century.

After Kohli, the fans are now expecting a blistering century from Rohit's bat as well.

Let us tell you that recently Kohli has done wonders with his bat.

In the ODI series played against Sri Lanka, King Kohli scored 2 brilliant centuries with his bat.

Although Rohit had definitely scored a half-century but missed out on a century.

Not being able to score a century from Rohit's bat is disappointing the fans.
