Team India, defeated by Australia in the final of the World Test Championship, will now try to make a fresh start with the West Indies tour next month. In this tour, the team has to play 2 Tests, 3 ODIs and 5 T20 matches. However, along with this tour, it has also been decided to include some new players in the team. In this tour, a young opener can also be seen playing in Team India, who will prove to be a strong replacement for Rohit Sharma in the coming time.
IPL 2023 has been a dream come true for Yashaswi Jaiswal. He scored 625 runs for Rajasthan Royals at an average of 48.08. Along with this, 6 half-centuries and one brilliant century came out of Jaiswal’s bat. Jaiswal could have won the Orange Cap this season too if the Rajasthan team had been in the playoff race, but the team did not make it to the final 4.
After the T20 World Cup 2022 defeat, captain Rohit Sharma is out of the T20 format. Hardik Pandya is captaining Team India in this format. Questions are also being raised on Rohit’s presence in the Test team after losing the WTC final. In such a situation, Yashaswi Jaiswal can be given a place in the team in both these formats. At the age of just 21, Yashaswi Jaiswal has created quite a stir in IPL and domestic cricket. In such a situation, Hardik Pandya’s T20 debut under the captaincy is almost certain. He was also selected in the squad for the WTC finals as a reserve opener. In such a situation, if Rohit rests on the West Indies tour, Jaiswal can be seen opening in Tests.
