‘These two players should be left out’, Gavaskar suggested a big change in the Indian team

With the Test series against South Africa, India’s batting line-up is sure to change drastically. Veterans Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane failed to capitalize on their last chance. This reduced the chances of both the players joining the Indian team in the future. The Indian team will now play a Test series against Sri Lanka. Due to their relative weakness, they will be fielding a team that focuses on young players against Sri Lanka. Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has suggested that Pujara and Rahane should be left out of the squad for the match against the island nation. Also Read: Gavaskar says there are two new batsmen vacant in the Indian midfield. Not only Rahane but also Pujara should be out of the series against Sri Lanka. Shreyas Iyer, who scored a century against New Zealand, should be added to the squad. Gavaskar also suggested that Shreyas should be given more chances to excel against New Zealand. Gavaskar also advised that when Shreyas replaces Rahane, Vihari should be brought in to replace Pujara. It would be appropriate for Hanuma Vihari to play at number three. Let Shreyas go down to number five. All this is something to be aware of. One thing is for sure, he said he had no doubt that there were two batters vacant in the Indian line-up. Rahane, who scored just 9 runs in the first innings of the third Test against South Africa, has scored a total of 10 runs in Tests. The fans gave a symbolic farewell to the outfielder who scored just one run in the second innings. His average is below 40 in 2020 and less than 20 in 2021. After 2019, the total achieved is only one century. Pujara is likely to be given another chance as Rahane’s departure is assured in the Indian side.
