So after a lot of roller roaster ride finally the stage has come where both the sides will play the final Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and the most interesting part is that winner is yet not clarified. With both standing at 1-1 followed by a draw, now all the eyes will be on the Brisbane Test that will tell us the winner of the series.
Only point of concern for the visitors will be all there experienced players will almost sit in the dug out as injury struck them. Already team was playing with the absence of Mohammad Shami and Umesh Yadav and now with the conclusion of Sydney Test, three more players got injured that are Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja and Hanuman Vihari. It is now a major concern for India.
They have to step in with new coordination and almost inexperienced players to compete the most important match of the series. Like Jadeja, team now definitely needs all rounder who can keep the hunt on for visitors in front of Mighty Hosts and for that management and selectors are aiming to bring Washington Sundar to the Test Squad. If he gets into the Team India’s playing XI, then it will an immense chance for him as it will be his debut match.
Washington Sundar has played yet 25 T20Is and took 21 wickets with an average of 29.14. He can be a crucial player for the team as he can also be an economical bowler for the visitors. In IPL, he used to bowl in powerplay for Royal Challengers Bangalore and used to give early breakthrough and here also he can create some opportunities.
Three changes can be seen in team India’s XI.
With the exclusion of Ravindra Jadeja, Hanuman Vihari and Jasprit Bumrah, team has to look for new three replacements who can cover them. So with the final decider test is on the notes, management will look one all rounder to squad in cover of Jadeja and it might be Washington Sundar.
