Gaikwad is unable to play in the New Zealand T20 Internationals due to injury



Ruturaj Gaikwad, a white-ball opening potential for India, has been excluded from the three-match T20I series against New Zealand due to wrist soreness. The 25-year-old has registered at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru to receive treatment for his injuries.

The last time Gaikwad played was when Maharashtra faced Hyderabad in a Ranji Trophy match. In that game, he recorded a score of 8 to 0, and afterward, he informed the BCCI about his wrist ailment. Actually, this is the second time Gaikwad has experienced wrist pain. Due to a similar injury, he missed the T20I match against Sri Lanka in 2017. After testing positive for Covid last year, he also missed the home ODI matches against the West Indies.

It is clear that Gaikwad's frequent absences from work due to illness or injuries has angered the national team's decision-makers and brains trust. However, they won't look for a replacement for this series, which increases the likelihood that Prithvi Shaw would return and take part.

His availability will then be decided by the selectors and team management before India begins a pre-series camp in Nagpur on February 2. The Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium will host the opening of the prestigious four-Test series beginning on February 9.
