4 players who can replace Virat Kohli in playing XI vs New Zealand
With Virat Kohli rested, Shreyas Iyer seems to be the frontrunner to replace him at number 3 in the T20i series vs New Zealand
Shreyas did a commendable job while batting at number 3 in the home series against Sri Lanka earlier this year and hit three back-to-back half-centuries
Sanju Samson can play as an opener and can also bat at number 3. He can give a boost to the scoring rate at any stage and is a boon for any team he plays for.
Sanju Samson was in the scheme of things for the 2022 T20 World Cup but missed out
Deepak Hooda has shown his prowess while batting at number 3 and could be given the job in Virat Kohli's absence
Deepak Hooda scored a century while batting one down against Ireland and the team management is well-versed in his batting skills
Although bats at number 4 in T20s, Suryakumar Yadav can be promoted to number 3 in T20 series vs New Zealand
Surya impressed everyone with his performance in T20 World Cup 2022 and owned the titled 'Mr.360'
