Many players, from Virat Kohli to Ravindra Jadeja, are still being talked about for the team. Let’s wait and see what happens.
Ind vs Eng 3rd Test Squad newest updates
England is playing a 5-game cricket series in India right now. They’ve played two games, and people are wondering who will play in the 3rd game.
The cricket board in India hasn’t yet shared who will be playing in the 3rd game.
With a key player, Virat Kohli, not playing in the series so far, and another player, Jadega, hurt, fans are worried about who will be on the team.
The team was going to be announced yesterday, but because Ravindra Jadeja hurt his leg in the first game, the cricket board is waiting to hear if he’s okay to play.
KL Rahul’s chance to play is also being talked about, especially since he had to leave a game in Vizag because of a leg injury. Today, the cricket board will have a final talk about who will play in the 3rd game.
India vs England 3rd Test Squad
Squad: Rohit Sharma (C), Jasprit Bumrah (VC), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, KL Rahul*, Rajat Patidar, Sarfaraz Khan, Dhruv Jurel (WK), KS Bharat (WK), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja*, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohd. Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Akash Deep
Who was in the test squad for the first two matches?
At first, the BCCI selected 16 players for the team in the India vs. England test series that would take place in India. Virat Kohli was chosen but three days before the series started, he decided not to play, saying it was for personal reasons.
BCCI chose Rajat Patidar to take Virat Kohli’s spot. Therefore, the team that played the first two games was:
In the second game, KS Bharat played instead of Ravindra Jadeja because he was hurt.
Prediction for the team line-up for the India vs. England 3rd test match
Let’s talk about some key players whose spots on the team aren’t so certain:
KL Rahul: KL Rahul is likely to be back on the team since he’s expected to recover from a muscle injury he got during a match. This is thanks to the break the players had before their next game on February 15, 2024.
Ravindra Jadeja: Whether Ravindra Jadeja will be back depends on what the team’s health experts say. He’s been getting better, so we’re hopeful.
Shreyas Iyer: Shreyas Iyer probably won’t play because of back pain. Reports say that Iyer had back surgery in 2023, and the problem is bothering him again. He’s said that his back hurts a lot after he plays a bit. So, we might see Washington Sundar or Sarfaraz Khan play instead.
Jasprit Bumrah: Bumrah might miss a game to avoid getting too tired. If he plays in Rajkot, he might skip the Ranchi game. It’s a hard decision for the people picking the team, but we’ll see who gets to play if Bumrah doesn’t.
Virat Kohli: It’s still unclear if Virat Kohli will be part of the test team since there’s been no news from him or the cricket board about him joining the upcoming games. Besides these players, we can expect to see the usual players in the test team.
