After a week-long break, India and England will resume their rivalry when the face off in the pink-ball Test in Ahmedabad from Wednesday. The four-match series is currently locked 1-1. Most of the debate going into the third Test is how the pink ball will behave and also how the batsmen will tackle the twilight period. Discussions are also centering around whether India should go in with two or three spinners.
A lot of eyebrows were raised were Suryakumar Yadav was not picked in the T20I squad for the tour of Australia. The 30-year-old has been performing consistently in domestic cricket for a few years now. Also, he has been the backbone of the Mumbai Indians’ middle-order for the last couple of seasons, winning them matches from tense situations. His non-inclusion in the team for Australia led to massive criticism from various quarters in Indian cricket.
