Batting or bowling, neither of the departments managed to fire for Rohit Sharma as the Indian team suffered a record 80-run defeat at the hands of New Zealand in the 1st T20I in Wellington. Heading into Auckland for the second match of the series, the stand-in skipper is expected to make a few changes, with Shubman Gill, Siddarth Kaul and Kuldeep Yadav being the likely players to be drafted in.
India Captain Rohit Sharma chose to bowl first which he realised was a great mistake on his part. But after the match was over, ICC posted a picture of him, where in the comments he was seen trolling Yuzvendra Chahal over his shirt. This angered our netizens and they started trolling and mocking him that how could he be doing this just after a disastrous defeat.
Check out ICC’s post here by tagging Rohit Sharma :

Meanwhile regarding the match a question remains over Gill’s ideal position in the team and the name of the batsman who should be dropped to accommodate him a spot in the playing XI. With MS Dhoni a certain to be given extended game time and Rishabh Pant the one for the future, Dinesh Karthik could be the one to miss out.
India’s likely Playing XI for 2nd T20I: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Vijay Shankar, Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Siddarth Kaul
