Test series to be played between India and Australia in February-March
Australia’s team will play 4 test matches on the tour of India
New Delhi. A series of four Test matches is to be played between India and Australia next month. This series is considered very important for making a place in the World Test Championship final. On Friday, the selectors announced the Indian team for the first two Test matches. Suryakumar Yadav has been given a place in the test while Ishaan Kishan and KS Bharat have been selected in place of wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant who was injured in the accident.
Spinner Adam Zampa’s name is not in Australia’s team ready to do two hands with India. This player of the team has put forward his point regarding the selection. Taking a dig at the selectors, he expressed his disappointment for not being selected for the tour of India. Jampa clearly named the officers and accused them of changing their mind at the last moment.
In the news of foxsports, Zampa has been quoted as saying, “I was very close. I was told by George Bailey and Andrew McDonald that it was very difficult for them to decide about this tour. I am very disappointed, it would have been much better if I got to go on the India tour. I think the kind of performance I have shown in international cricket, I should have been given a chance.
“From the messages that were given to me for a few weeks, it seemed certain that my selection in the team going to tour India was confirmed. I was given such a message 6 weeks ago and now I am not in the team, I am feeling very bad about it. I was very excited to visit India. I was very sure that I would make a place in the team and the way my bowling style is, it would have been very useful for the team in India. But there was probably a change in the idea of selection at the last moment.
