The India team has already been announced for the final match of the World Test Championship. This match will be played between India and Australia from June 7. The India team brought back a player who had performed amazingly in IPL 2023. But the amazing thing is that as soon as this player was selected in the team, the performance of him was getting worse day by day.
Bad decision made by the selectors?
We are talking about senior hitter Ajinkya Rahane. Rahane was dropped from the Indian Test squad last year. But in IPL 2023, he performed in such a way that the selectors returned him to the squad for a great match as the WTC final. Prior to selection in Team India, good scores like 61, 31, 37, 9, 71 did not come out of Rahane’s bat. Even this player was hitting at a strike rate of 200.
Bad game after selection in the team
On the other hand, if we look at Rahane’s performance in the IPL after selection in Team India, then it was not very special. Rahane played innings of 16, 21, 21 and 15 runs. At the same time, in the qualifying match against Gujarat, this player scored just 17 runs. Because of this, questions about Rahane’s performance are constantly being raised.
Team India’s squad for the WTC final
Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, KL Rahul, KS Bharat (goalkeeper), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Akshar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Umesh Yadav and Jaydev Unadkat .
