Should Pujara open in the first ODI vs Zimbabwe ?

India will be looking to continue their superb showing in the One-Day Internationals when their young team led by Virat Kohli take on hosts Zimbabwe in a five-match One-Day International series, starting in Harare, on Wednesday.

The World champions are on a roll having recently won the ICC Champions Trophy followed by the tri-nation tournament in the West Indies.

The Indians rested regular captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni along with all their frontline bowlers for their clash against the minnows.

Uncapped Parveez Rasool, Mohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ambati Rayudu will get a chance to showcase their talents at the international level, while Ajinkya Rahane and Jaydev Unadkat will be looking to impress on their comeback.

Do you think India should continue to open with Rohit Sharma or give Pujara a chance at the top of the order?

Where should Rahane bat? Also, should give Amit Mishra a chance to prove himself ahead of Rasool?

You can help new captain Kohli in his decision. Be the selector, pick your team for the first ODI.
