Ep. 96: India crush New Zealand 5-0 in T20I series
Ashwin is joined by Varun and DJ this week to discuss India’s 5-0 T20I destruction of New Zealand.
They discuss the back-to-back superovers in the third and fourth T20I, Rohit’s superlative hitting, KL Rahul’s new and improved short sleeves, Sanju Samson’s wasted opportunities and mixed messages to Rishabh Pant. Manish Pandey continues to impress them with crucial knocks in the middle order and they also discuss whether Shivam Dube has made the most of his extended run in the side.
The podcast really heats up as the Shardul Thakur situation is analysed at length and there is some debate on whether he deserves a spot in the side. They also discuss whether India’s bowling has become better at defending totals and look ahead to which players they think will make it into India’s WT20 squad for the tournament in Australia later this year.
