IND Vs SA: Team India’s fast bowler Mohammad Siraj was injured in the second test match against South Africa. Mohammad Siraj has been rested for the third Test due to a hamstring strain. Umesh Yadav has been included in place of Siraj in the deciding match. While Ishant Sharma was also present in the team. Many veteran cricketers have raised questions on the team management giving preference to Umesh Yadav. Former South Africa captain Shaun Pollock has called Virat’s decision unfair. Because Umesh Yadav is far away from Ishant in experience and statistics.
Shaun Pollock has made a big statement after Ishant Sharma, who played 105 Test matches for Team India, was not included in the playing 11 of the third test match against Africa. Pollock has said that at this stage of his career, Ishant will have to give the right reason to play in the playing 11. Because according to me there should be a direct dialogue between the team management and Ishant. Considering Ishant’s cricketing career and his bowling performance, the opportunity to play should be given.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s decision to field Umesh Yadav in place of Ishant was strange. Ishant Sharma was ruled out of the Mumbai Test due to an injury in the Kanpur Test. Several former players, including Shaun Pollock, have raised questions over Ishant’s absence in the playing XI for the South Africa tour.
