Virat Kohli vs Sachin Tendulkar: On Saturday, BCCI announced its 17-member team for the remaining three matches of the Test series being played against England in India. During this period, India’s star batsman Virat Kohli was not a part of the team. Even in the first two matches played in the series, Virat Kohli was not a part of Team India’s squad and now the situation is similar in the remaining three matches. Overall, he missed the entire series. Virat Kohli was not available for selection due to personal reasons. Although earlier it was expected that Virat Kohli would join Team India’s squad for the remaining three matches, but it could not happen.
This happened for the first time in Virat Kohli’s career.
After being left out of Team India’s squad in the series being played against England, a long standing record of Virat also came to a halt. For the first time in his nearly 13-year-long Test career, Virat Kohli has missed a Test series for India. Due to the absence of Virat Kohli, Team India’s batting line up has been dealt a huge blow. Team India has already lost once in this series due to its batting and now the absence of Virat Kohli in the top order can cause further damage to the team.
In this entire series, except Shubman Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal, no Indian batsman could score a century. With Virat Kohli out, India’s batting line up looks weak. In the same way, it used to happen with Team India earlier due to Sachin Tendulkar’s exit. In such a situation, let us know how many series Sachin Tendulkar has missed in his entire Test career.
Sachin Tendulkar missed only 4 series for India
- vs Sri Lanka in 2001 (3 match series)
- 2005 vs Zimbabwe (2 match series)
- vs West Indies in 2006 (4 match series)
- vs West Indies in 2011 (3 match series)
India’s squad for the last three Test matches against England:
Rohit Sharma (captain), Jasprit Bumrah (vice-captain), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, KL Rahul, Rajat Patidar, Sarfaraz Khan, Dhruv Jurel (wk), KS Bharat (wk), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Akash Deep
