Cricket News: After the defeat in the Test series against South Africa, many big changes are being seen in Team India. Virat Kohli has also resigned from the captaincy of Test Team India. Now the players who have been in poor form for a long time in the Test team can also be discharged. Harbhajan Singh, former off-spinner of the Indian team has also indicated this. Bhajji says that three players can be shown the way out in the series against West Indies. In which two are top-order batsmen, while one middle-order batsman is included. Giving his personal opinion, Harbhajan Singh said that instead of these players, other young players should also be given a chance.
Let us tell you that many veterans have talked about Rahane and Pujara, who have been out of form for a long time, to drop them from the team. The team management has also given these players plenty of opportunities. After this, former cricketer Harbhajan Singh has spoken on his performance in the South Africa series. He first criticized Mayank Agarwal’s performance on his YouTube channel. Mayank was a flop in all 6 innings of the Test series against South Africa. After this, he took the names of Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane, who could score only one half-century each. Harbhajan feels that this kind of performance cannot be expected from experienced batsmen.
Significantly, Rahane and Pujara have disappointed with their performances throughout the series. Unhappy with his performance, Sunil Gavaskar and Gautam Gambhir also talked about dropping him from the team. Gautam Gambhir had also suggested keeping Rahane and Pujara out of the playing 11 in the third test match. He believed that Hanuma Vihari should be given a chance.
Harbhajan said, “Mayank Agarwal can be replaced by Shubman Gill or Prithvi Shaw. Because Mayank was given a chance to play 6 innings. Mayank is a good player and I support him, but make a place in Team India.” To keep such a display is probably not good.
At the same time, regarding Pujara and Rahane, Bhajji said that the performance of these players has opened doors for players like Suryakumar Yadav and Shreyas Iyer to enter the team.
