Many questions are being raised due to not being included in the Indian team selected for the Test series against Sri Lanka. The selectors have not announced their option.
The BCCI did not make it clear in the media release that it has hurt or is a matter of workload. BCCI has responded on its official Twitter handle, that Hardik Pandya has not been excluded from the team under the rotation policy, but he has been rested on the advice of the doctors. Pandya had groaned with pain in an attempt to stop a strong hit on his own ball in the last T20 match in Thiruvananthapuram against New Zealand. He thought he had completed the over though.
“All India senior selection committee has decided to give rest to the all-rounder Pandit Jadhav after the team management with the first two Tests,” the BCCI release said. He was selected for the first two matches. In view of their heavy workload recently, this decision was taken so that they could be protected from any type of injury. He will participate in the adaptation session at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore. “Since the Champions Trophy in June, Pandya has played three Tests, 22 ODIs and five T20 matches. There was no answer to this question that he was not already comforted by being aware of his workload.
India’s team of upcoming Test Series has been announced against Sri Lanka. Although it will be for only two matches. A special change in the team has been done in the form of Hardik Pandya. Hardik Pandya, the all-rounder from the Indian cricket team, has not been selected in the team for the first two test matches. The Sri Lankan team will play three Tests, three ODIs and so many T20 internationals in this tour. The tour will be held in Mumbai on December 24.
Sri Lanka will play the first Test match in India after 2009. He has a very bad record on his Indian soil. He has so far lost 10 out of the 17 Test matches he has played in India and the other seven are drawn. It will be very difficult for Captain Dinesh Chandimal. He will also play his first Test match on Indian soil. He will try to take advantage of the experience of Angelo Mathews and Rangana Herath, who were part of the losing team from the 0-2 Test series 7 years ago.
The Sri Lankan team, which suffered a 0-9 defeat in all three formats at the hands of India, reached here after almost two months, but in the meantime, it beat Pakistan 2-0 in UAE last month, The morale will increase.
