New Delhi: Competition is increasing continuously in Team India, due to which the cricket career of some big cricketers may end in the coming days. With the youth, big decisions can be taken soon, for which preparations have already started in Team India. Young players like Shreyas Iyer, KS Bharat and Prasiddha Krishna have got a chance in the two-match Test series against New Zealand starting on November 25. Every cricketer aspires to play for his country in all three formats of cricket, but only few players are able to do so. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are great examples for India. Let’s take a look at 3 such players of Team India whose place in Team India is in danger.
1. Wriddhiman Saha
One problem with Wriddhiman Saha was that Wriddhiman Saha never got much opportunities in ODI or T20 cricket until MS Dhoni was being made in cricket, even after Dhoni’s retirement, this player got a chance to play in Test cricket. got it. Senior wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha’s Test career is now almost coming to an end because of Pant. Saha used to play as a wicketkeeper in the team continuously after Dhoni’s retirement from Test cricket. But as soon as Pant made his place in the team, Saha has got very few chances since then. Now it is very difficult for Wriddhiman Saha to get a chance in Team India again. Actually, now Saha can appear again in the team only when Rishabh Pant is out due to injury. Saha is currently 36 years old and at this age many cricketers make up their mind to take retirement. In such a situation, Saha can say goodbye to international cricket anytime.
2. Ishant Sharma
Senior fast bowler Ishant Sharma started his career in the year 2007 with a Test match against Bangladesh and the very next month Ishant got an opportunity to make his ODI debut. Ishant has played 80 ODIs so far, in which he was successful in taking 115 wickets, although Sharma was not so successful in T20 cricket. Ishant’s ODI career can be said to be good, but the selectors have not given him a chance to play in a single ODI since 2016. Competition is increasing continuously in Team India. Bowlers like Siraj are doing well in the test format. In such a situation, Ishant Sharma’s card can be cut from Team India. Ishant has played more than 100 Tests, in which he has taken 311 wickets.
3. Ajinkya Rahane
Ajinkya Rahane is known as a big player in Indian cricket, who has played cricket in all formats for Team India, Rahane, who debuted in 2011, has appeared in 90 ODIs and 20 T20 matches for India, but this In time, this player is seen as a Test specialist. The selectors give Rahane a chance to play in almost every Test series, but he is ignored in ODIs and T20s. In T20 cricket, Rahane has not been given a chance in a single match since 2016. Even in ODI cricket, he has not been given a place in Team India since 2018. Looking at this, it seems that Rahane will rarely be seen playing ODI cricket or T20 now. The two-match Test series against New Zealand, starting on November 25, could prove to be the last chance for Rahane after Rahane flopped badly on the recently concluded tour of England. If Rahane remains flop in this series, then along with his Test vice-captain, he will also be discharged from the team. Talented young batsmen like Shreyas Iyer can replace Rahane in the Test team.
