IND vs SA: Here’s why Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane were removed from the Test team, what’s next?

The names of Team India players for the Test series against South Africa have been announced. Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane have no place in this team. In fact, this will happen after almost 13 years when both players will not be part of the Indian Test team. But what does it mean that Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane don’t get a place in the Indian Test team? However, it is believed that the time has come for changes in the Indian Test team. Now BCCI and team management want to give opportunities to young players instead of these players.

Seniors like Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane will not be part of the South Africa Test series team. At the same time, bets were placed on players like Shreyas Iyer, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ruturaj Gaikwad. BCCI’s intention is clear to prepare these young players for the days ahead. Are the doors of the Indian Test team now closed for Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane? Statistics show that Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane have played 188 Test matches for India in which both players scored more than 12,000 runs.

Recently, Shreyas Iyer’s performance in the World Cup was excellent. This player had shown excellent batting performances in the middle order. However, it is believed that Shreyas Iyer will bat at No. 5 in the Indian Test team in place of Ajinkya Rahane. Additionally, players like Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rituraj Gaikwad will feature in this batting line-up. BCCI’s intention is clear that young players should now be prepared for the Test team. Due to this, young players were bet on for the South Africa Test series instead of Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane.
