Test series between India and Australia will start from February 9
Captain Rohit Sharma will miss two champion players
New Delhi. The Indian cricket team will very soon take on Australia in the famous Border Gavaskar Trophy. This series is being awaited for a long time. India will have to show their best game in 4 test matches. Team India needs a win in the series played under the ICC World Test Championship. This is very important to stay in the final race. The compulsion of the Indian team captain Rohit Sharma is that the two champion players who played Australia’s band in Australia are not in the team.
The 4-match Test series between India and Australia is going to start from 9 February. The selectors have selected Team India for the first two Tests while the team for the remaining matches will be selected later. If Rohit comes to captain the Test series at home, then the focus will be on securing the ticket for the Test Championship final. The difficulty is that the team with the captain does not include two champions.
2 champions not in the team, Rohit Sharma also forced
Indian team’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, who has been more effective against Australia, is currently injured. He has more than one excellent ball to restrain Australia’s batsmen. The sad thing is that after making a comeback, he has gone to rehab again without playing any match. BCCI has also made it clear that it cannot take any risk regarding the return of this champion. The captain is also helpless as the players cannot be a part of the team due to not being able to attain full fitness.
Captain Rohit’s misfortune will be said that before such an important series with Australia, a champion wicket-keeper batsman like Rishabh Pant was forced to sit out after being a victim of a car accident. In December last year, while going home from Delhi, Pant was seriously injured in a car accident. He is currently recovering but will have to sit out of the field for a long time. The innings he played in Australia will always be fresh in everyone’s mind.
