New Delhi: A five-match Test series will be played between India and England from August 4. The first Test match will be played from August 4 to August 8 at Nottingham’s Trent Bridge ground. There can be major changes in the Indian team in this five-match Test series against England. The careers of many cricketers are at stake.
Ajinkya Rahane in danger?
Ajinkya Rahane’s performance has been under question for some time now. Ajinkya Rahane will have to do something special to prove himself on this tour of England, otherwise there is one batsman who can cut his card in the Test team. The Indian cricket team has a talented batsman like Suryakumar Yadav, who knows the art of playing more than one shot around the field and getting runs. If Ajinkya Rahane could not do well in this series, then Suryakumar Yadav’s entry in the Test team is confirmed.
Why can Ajinkya Rahane be blamed?
The most important thing about team selection in the Test series against England. Ajinkya Rahane’s place in the Indian cricket team is in danger. Although Ajinkya Rahane played a brilliant innings of 49 runs in the first innings of the World Test Championship final (WTC Final) match, but for some time he has not been able to perform with the bat, for which he is known.
Bet on Rohit Sharma
If the Indian team is thinking of ousting Ajinkya Rahane, then the burden of vice-captaincy can be put on Rohit Sharma. Rohit Sharma can be made the vice-captain, but can Ajinkya Rahane’s place be filled, because when it comes to Ajinkya Rahane, his record against the hosts on England’s soil has been very good. Ajinkya Rahane has played 17 Test matches against England so far, in which he has scored 731 runs with the help of 5 half-centuries and 1 century. Whether it would be right to exclude him with such figures or not, only the Indian team knows.
Nothing like before in Rahane
Former Indian wicket-keeper batsman Deepdas Gupta had said that I do not think Rahane is the same player he was. Rahane was brilliant in 2014-16. He was one such player whom I had seen playing for Mumbai. Wankhede pitch was damp on the first morning, there was grass in the pitch and it was a nightmare to bat there in those days, but Rahane scored over 4000-4500 runs before playing India, especially batting at No. 3.
