Adelaide test: India announced the names of their last 12 players for the first Test of the three-match series against Australia. It was decided with this that in the first test, the Chainaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will not play. Both are excluded from the last-12. Both Rohit Sharma and Hanuma Vihari are included in the last-12. In order to choose the last XI, the team management must drop one of the two.
India will go with seven batsmen in Tests(Adelaide test)
Rohit and Hanuma both come in to bat to bat at number six. Since both have been selected in the last 12, there will be only one game in the first Test against Australia. Rishabh Pant will be on seventh position in the role of wicket-keeper batsman.
Team India’s last 12 include three fast bowlers, while Ravichandran Ashwin is just as a spinner. It will not be possible to drop any of these, because India will come with at least three fast bowlers on the fast pitch of Australia.
Australia has replaced Peter Handscomb in the last-11, replacing Mitchell Marsh. Spinner Travis will now be the part-time bowler. In such a situation, India has the compulsion to keep Ashwin in the last-11. Ashwin has scored 276 runs in 21 Tests at an average of 27.60 in Australia and has taken 21 wickets.
Indian team is as follows
Virat Kohli (captain), Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Ravichandran Ashwin, Jaspreet Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Mohammad Shami
On the number six, Hanuma’s position is more visible than Rohit. Hanuma had made his Test debut this year against England. Then he had a half-century. Hanuma can play the part timer bowler for Team India.
Rohit is in good form in the present time, but his record on foreign soil has been poor in the record. He played two Tests this year in South Africa. In this, he scored just 78 runs in four innings at an average of 19.50. Since then, he has not played any test.
