AHMEDABAD: In the India v England Test series, the youngsters have led Team India to victory. The young players showed their mettle against Australia. Washington Sundar and Akshar Patel have emerged as the heroes of the series. In such a situation, there is a question in the minds of the fans as to how difficult it is for star player and Gujarat’s grandson cricketer Ravindra Jadeja to return to the Indian team.
Let me tell you that Akshar Patel entered the Test series. In just three Tests, Akshar took 27 wickets to set a world record. At the same time, Washington Sundar did not have much of a chance as a bowler but in batting he scored an average of almost 100. He was unbeaten on 96 in the last innings of the fourth Test. The regret of not completing his century was from the fans to the players.
India’s bench strength is the best in the world
All of India’s veterans in Australia were injured and dropped from the team. Virat Kohli also returned to India on paternity leave. In such a situation, players like Mohammad Siraj, Shardul Thakur, T Natarajan and Washington Sundar took India to the place of victory. At the same time, Rishabh Pant also played a very important role in this victory. With the kind of historic performance by Akshar Patel, the challenge for team management will be who to keep in the team and who to exclude.
After the match, Virat Kohli said that India’s bench strength is the best in the world. Our players are ready to perform on the big stage. The way young players take responsibility on important occasions and lead the team to victory is very satisfying. This shows that the next generation is ready to play its role at the right time.
