Prithvi Shaw yet again misses out in the Indian XI for the second T20I against New Zealand
The second T20I between India and New Zealand will take place on Sunday (29th January) in Lucknow. Visitors skipper Mitchell Santner had won the toss and decided to field first in the ground. India has made one change, bringing in Yuzvendra Chahal in place of Umran Malik.
While the playing XI was liked by many, there were a few eyebrows raised as Shaw was not named in the team for the second game, especially after Indian batting failed in the first game. Many expected him to play as he has been one of the best young players doing the rounds.
Shaw made a comeback into the Indian side after almost 1.5 years. He despite having a decent run in the domestic circuit was not getting selected. He last played for India in Sri Lanka in 2021.
Ahead of the first game, skipper Hardik Pandya clearly mentioned ahead of the first T20I against Sri Lanka in the pre-match presser that the Mumbaikar have to wait for his chances. He said that both Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan have been batting staggeringly well and therefore team needs to give them the longer rope.
Here’s the Indian XI for the second game:
Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan(w), Rahul Tripathi, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya(c), Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Shivam Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh

Prithvi Shaw was possibly picked just to silence the growing demand after his Ranji triple hundred..not sure he would get the game next and another T20 series is far away.

Nothing Surprise if Shaw not IN. Kishan find place due to pant isnt avail. Samson is deserving a lot then this kishan&shaw. Crickets fans know very well that apart from game what is priority & most important!
