India vs England Test : The second test is still going on between India and England. But in the meantime, what will be the Indian team for the third test is yet to be revealed. If the second test continues for full 5 days, it will continue till 6th February. After this there is a gap of about a week. The third match of the series will be played in Rajkot from 15th February. Till now, BCCI has announced the team for only two tests. Some changes were also made in the second match after the first. But now the question is that when the selectors choose the team for the third test, what kind of team can it be?
Ravindra Jadeja may be out of the entire series, KL Rahul’s return possible
After the first Test, Ravindra Jadeja and KL Rahul were out of the second match. Currently both these players are in NCA Bengaluru. Meanwhile, news is coming that KL Rahul’s injury is not very serious, hence he can return in the third test. If we talk about Ravindra Jadeja, he does not seem to be completely fit right now. It is being claimed in media reports that Ravindra Jadeja may miss the entire series. If this happens then it will be no less than a shock for the Indian cricket team.
Virat Kohli’s return is still difficult
If we talk about Virat Kohli, it is said that he is not in India right now. He withdrew his name after being selected in the squad for the first two Tests. It is being claimed that Virat Kohli is currently in London. Now information is not available as to why they have gone there and when will they return. But it is believed that he too will not be able to come before the third test. That means Kohli will once again be seen missing the next match. There is news about Mohammed Shami that he too will not be fit right now. If seen this way, Ravindra Jadeja, Virat Kohli and Mohammed Shami’s comeback does not seem to be happening at the moment.
Only the team of the second test can play the third match also.
As far as the team’s squad for the third Rajkot Test is concerned, there does not seem to be any scope for much tinkering with the team currently playing. Rajat Patidar has got a chance to make his Test debut. It remains to be seen how they play, but their future will not be decided on the basis of a single match. Sarfaraz Khan is in the team, but he is not playing, hence it does not seem possible to drop him without giving him a chance. Washington Sundar has also not played any match yet. It should be expected that when the selectors sit to choose the team for the next match, they will make only one or two changes in the team. A lot will also depend on how the team performs in the remaining second matches.
