“These two players should be left out,” Gavaskar suggested a big change in the Indian squad

With the Test series against South Africa, India’s batting roster is sure to change drastically. Veterans Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane missed their last chance. This reduced the chances of both players joining the Indian team in the future. The Indian team is now playing a Test series against Sri Lanka. Due to their relative weakness, they will field a team focused on young players against Sri Lanka. Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has suggested Pujara and Rahane be left out of the squad for the game against the island nation.

Shreyas Iyer, who scored a century against New Zealand, should be included in the squad. Gavaskar also

suggested giving Shreyas more chances to hold their own against New Zealand. Gavaskar also advised that if Shreyas replaces Rahane, Vihari should be brought in to replace Pujara. It would be appropriate for Hanuma to play Vihari in third place. Drop Shreyas down to number five. All of 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 lineup. Rahane, who hit just 9 runs in the first innings of the third Test against South Africa, has 10 runs total in Tests. The fans symbolically said goodbye to the outfield player, who only scored one run in the second innings. Its average is below 40 in 2020 and below 20 in 2021. After 2019, the total reached is only a century. Pujara is likely to get another chance as Rahane’s exit is certain from the Indian side.
