And in the third test, there was a lot of interest in the bowling combination of Team India. Will Sarfaraz Khan and Dhruv Jurel debut in international cricket with this match? Or? It became interesting.
India vs England 3rd Test: In the five-test series against England, Team India recovered in the second test in Vizag and wants to show its strength in the third test. Preparations are being made for the Test to be held at Rajkot from Thursday (February 15).
Iyer, Avesh Khan
BCCI made slight changes in the team for the last three Tests. Shreyas Iyer avoided Avesh Khan. Akashdeep was given an opportunity. Ravindra Jadeja and KL Rahul, who missed two Tests due to injuries, have rejoined the team. As expected, King Kohli missed the rest of the matches as well.
How is the bowling combination?
And in the third test, there was a lot of interest in the bowling combination of Team India. Will Sarfaraz Khan and Dhruv Jurel debut in international cricket with this match? Or? It became interesting. Telugu Tejam KS failed miserably in the first two Tests. There is a possibility that he will be dropped in the third Test against India. Bharat scored only 41, 28, 17 and 6 runs in four innings. He also faltered in keeping. Sunayasa makes the stump outs. There is a possibility that Dhruv will play Jurel instead of Bharat in these series. But the presence of inexperienced players in the team turned out to be a disadvantage for Dhruv Jurel. If we think from this angle, Bharat may get another chance.
Sarfaraz Khan Doute..
The million dollar question is whether domestic sensation Sarfaraz Khan will make his debut in this match. The line was cleared for Sarfaraz after he failed against Shreyas in the first two Tests. But, Sarfaraz has competition from KL Rahul. If he is not fit, there is a possibility that Sarfaraz will be in the ring along with Rajat Patidar.
Mohammad Siraj was ruled out for the second test in pace bowling. Along with Siraj, Mukesh Kumar and Akashdeep are competing in the third Test. Siraj in the first test and Mukesh in the second test did not make any impact. BCCI selected Bengal pacer Akashdeep for three Tests against England Lions. If he is given a chance, Siraj and Mukesh, who is in super form, will be limited to the bench. Considering seniority, Siraj will get a chance. If Ajay Jadeja regains fitness, there is a possibility to avoid Kuldeep. Ashwin, Jadeja and Akshar Patel will continue in the team as spinners. In the batting department, Rohit and Yashaswi will enter the ring as openers while Gill will play first down. The third Test is crucial for Rohit, who is struggling with poor form.
India's Final Team (Estimated)
Rohit Sharma, Yashaswi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, KL Rahul, Rajat Patidar/Sarfaraz Khan, Akshar Patel, KS Bharat/Dhruvjurel, Ravindra Jadeja/Kuldeep Yadav, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj/Akash Deep.
