India vs England: BCCI on Saturday announced the squad of Team India for the last three matches of the remaining Test series being played between India and England. Many changes were seen in this squad. During this time, the team management has decided to keep Sarfaraz Khan in the squad of Team India. Actually, Sarfaraz Khan was given a chance in Team India’s squad during the second test match due to injuries to senior players, but he did not get a chance to debut. Now it is being expected that Team India captain Rohit Sharma can include him in the playing 11 during the third test match.

How can one get a chance in the third test?

Team India will play the third test match against England in Rajkot. It is believed that Indian players will start their practice from February 12. Now the biggest question is whether Rohit Sharma will give Sarfaraz Khan a chance to debut in this match or not. There seems to be only one way left for Sarfaraz to make his debut. Actually, KL Rahul has returned to the Indian team, but BCCI had informed that KL Rahul will be made a part of the playing 11 on the basis of his fitness. In such a situation, if KL Rahul is unable to prove his fitness, Sarfaraz Khan can play in his place in the middle order.

Shreyas Iyer is also out

When Team India’s squad was announced for the remaining three matches of the Test series, Shreyas Iyer’s name was not included in it. BCCI did not say anything about the reason why Iyer was dropped from Team India. Iyer was going through poor form in this series. In such a situation, this time even Shreyas Iyer cannot become a hindrance in the debut of Sarfaraz Khan. On the other hand, Sarfaraz has continuously impressed everyone with his strong batting in domestic cricket.
