- Ajinkya Rahane should also be left out
- Zaheer wants Ashwin to replace Ishant
- It’s okay to play with two spinners
The Oval is a throw that always favors spin in the second inning. Zaheer thinks there is nothing wrong with playing Jadeja and Ashwin together. They both played in the World Trials Championship because they were the best bowlers in India. Zaheer said the same procedure should be followed in the fourth test.
Zaheer has suggested that Ashwin could replace the Ishant Sharma pacemaker. Ishant was the worst Indian pacemaker in the third test. Zaheer also makes another very interesting comment. Zaheer says that Mohammad Siraj, who is in top form on the Indian pace team, can rest. The former Indian pacer also suggested that Shardul Thakur should be replaced as an SUV. This decision will further strengthen the batting lineup. Zaheer also said Siraj’s workload could be reduced.
Rahane should be replaced
Zaheer Khan has demanded that Ajinkya Rahane be replaced. It should be replaced by one of Suryakumar Yadav and Hanuma Vihari. The final decision rests with the team management. Zaheer added that it is important to observe the situation. With the exception of his half century in the Trial of the Lord, Rahane has been in bad shape for the past few seasons.
Rahane contributed 18 and 10 in each inning in the third test. India was eliminated by just 87 in the first innings. Criticism of the batting rate has been mounting during the innings loss. Replacing Vice Captain Rahane is a difficult decision. It remains to be seen whether the team’s leadership will mature for that.
Suryakumar Yadav has yet to make his test debut. Hanuma Vihari is also looking forward to opportunities after the Australia tour. The poor form of the middle order hitters is affecting India significantly. Captain Virat Kohli is going through the worst moment of his career. The fourth test between India and England begins on Thursday. Zaheer Khan also said that he believes England have a slight advantage in the match.
