Sydney: When the Indian team takes the field for the third Test against Australia on January 7, Rohit Sharma (Rohit Sharma) is almost certain to join the team in place of Mayank Agarwal in the opening. At the same time, for the third fast bowler in place of injured Umesh Yadav, one of Shardul Thakur and Navdeep Saini (Navdeep Saini) will have a chance.
Mayank Agarwal has failed to score big in 7 of the last 8 test heats, so team management will have little trouble replacing Rohit Sharma. In the management of the team, however, the name of Saini and Shardul was not agreed upon.

Until a few days ago, fast Mumbai pitcher and lower-order helpful batsman Shardul Thakur emerged as the top pick, but it has been learned that some senior players believe India’s fastest pitcher Navdeep Saini (Navdeep) Saini) can upset the Australian team with his speed.
The Indian team trained during the day in the net session at Sydney Cricket Ground where all eyes were on Rohit Sharma. He looked pretty comfortable against fast bowling and spinning. He is expected to be seen playing a big round in Sydney.

There is a delay in the selection of the third quick bowler because the main field was covered on Tuesday due to bad weather. After seeing the terrain and conditions on Wednesday, the team may be able to make a decision easily. If the sky is cloudy and there is humidity on the ground, the chances of Thakur being elected will increase.
If the ground is flat, Saini may stand a chance. He is able to bowling at a fast pace and also get a reverse swing of the old ball, in such a situation this can be Saini’s start in the Test. For Shardul, this start will be like a match. When he officially played the first test 2 years ago, he injured himself before finishing his first.
For fast bowling India has another option in the form of T Natarajan. The past 4 months have been great for this fast left arm bowler. On Monday, he also tweeted his photo in the test team jersey. Natarajan lived 20 first-class matches where he played his last long-format match (Ranji Trophy) in January of last year.
