MUMBAI: The team that will play in the final of the ICC World Test Championship has been announced 24 hours in advance, much to the surprise of Team India. Former Indian cricketer and commentator Sunil Gavaskar made some interesting comments as the first day of the game was delayed due to rain.
The Indian team announced the final 11 finalists against New Zealand after the Virat Kohli, Ravi Shastri media conference yesterday. As everyone expected, The Best Team Eleven was selected for the final.
However, former cricketer and commentator Sunil Gavaskar has commented that Team India may make changes to the final squad if necessary before the toss. ‘The Indian team has announced the XI team. However it has not yet been handed over to the referee. So if they want to make changes in the final squad taking into account the pitch conditions and the weather … those changes can be made within the toss, ”Gavaskar commented.
It has been rumored that senior Indian pacer Ishant Sharma will be replaced by Mohammad Siraj, who has been dropped from the Australia tour. However, Team India has announced that Ishant Sharma has been selected for the final.
It has also been rumored that Ravindra Jadeja will be replaced by four pacers or another batsman in the Southampton climate change in England. If you want to make changes in the Indian team by the time of the toss it will be interesting to see what changes Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri will make. Cricket analysts are predicting changes such as the inclusion of Mohammad Siraj in the squad and the omission of Jadeja from the final squad.
