IND vs NZ Why Prithvi Shaw not playing

India have made a solitary change to their Playing XI, bringing Umran Malik for Yuzvendra Chahal. There is still no place for Prithvi Shaw in the third T20I match against New Zealand at the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium in Ahmedabad.

During the toss, India’s T20I captain Hardik Pandya mentioned that they are playing with an unchanged batting combination in this third T20I match against New Zealand. This also means that Prithvi Shaw will once again be warming the bench and wait some more for his opportunity.

Before the opening T20I against the Kiwi side, Hardik had already cleared the fact that Shubman Gill will start as the opener in this three-match T20I series as the right-hander has looked in a superb form during the ODI matches. However, Prithvi made a comeback into the Indian team after scoring loads of runs in domestic cricket.
