9. Krunal Pandya
Krunal Pandya made his T20I debut for India during the recently concluded series against West Indies at home. He did not get a chance to bat in 2 matches. In the first T20I match played at Kolkata, Pandya took 1 wicket giving away 15 runs and also impressed with batting skills scoring 21 runs off 9 balls.
With no Hardik Pandya in the squad, Krunal Pandya would be looking to impress with his all-around abilities in Australian conditions. He has the experience of playing in the Indian Premier League for Mumbai Indians.
Playing on the first tour, Krunal Pandya must rise to the occasion and help team India win matches. In 2018 IPL, the left-handed Pandya scored 228 runs from 14 matches took 12 wickets with the ball.
