New Delhi: A possible Indian XI playing remains the topic of discussion for the first day-night test match between India and Australia from December 17 in Adelaide and it remains to be decided whether Wriddhiman Saha, 36, as best wicket keeper or Rishabh Pant, 23, who among the best batsmen must have a place in the team.
The management of the Indian team is yet to open their cards and when asked about this, Hanuma Vihari also said that “ healthy competition ” is good for the team.
Saha may have a chance
It is believed that the best wicket and Saha’s defensive stick may be preferred. Rishabh Pant’s stick is on the offensive, Saha (Wriddhiman Saha) is performing very well, so he may have a chance to keep the wicket.
Coach Ravi Shastri, Captain Virat Kohli, Assistant Coach Vikram Rathore, Bharat Arun and Selector Harvinder Singh will assess the performance of these two men depending on the circumstances of the match.
Saha missed important innings in a practice match
Saha (Wriddhiman Saha) saved India from defeat to Australia A by playing a crucial 54-point set in the first practice match. He then faced bowlers like James Pattinson, Michael Naser and Cameron Green.
The pants marked a century in a training match
In contrast, when Rishabh Pant scored a century in the second practice match, the Indian team were in a better position and had to face leg thrower Mitchell Swapson and improvised bowler Nick Madinson. Former Australian captain Alan Border described Australia A’s bowling performance as shameful.
Saha has experience
Saha (Wriddhiman Saha) scored 1238 tries in 37 tests, including three centuries. He took 92 takes and 11 strains. Even if he gets a place in the first test match, Pant’s chances are not lost. Saha will have to perform well not only behind the wicket but also in front of the wicket to stay in the squad.
