For all the Indian Cricket Fans ,after the forgettable first Match against Australia there are some additional shocking news which makes us into scenarios like adding fuel to the fire for both Indian Team and Fans .It’s an already existing information about Virat Kohli unavailability on the rest of the three matches, after this collapse in batting order in the Second Innings of the First Test Match Team batting looks vulnerable also in the same way its Kohli personal decision on his life and we have to respect our captain at these kind of situations. But before that there are some additional shocking news in the Team in bowling department .Lets see those one by one in upcoming articles
As said earlier shocking news for the fans is an experienced bowler Mohmmad Shami got injured on his finger in the second innings batting which caused his finger fractured and after the medical commencement management announced that he will be unavailable for the rest of the series , Shami’s loss in the bowling attack comparatively a huge loss for the Team in terms of bowling ,Virat kohli’s batting can be managed by Rahane and Pujara in the middle but for Shami there is no right replacement in the squad, a debut player will be replaced since there is no experienced bowler like Ishant Sharma, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. Also, Shami’s reverse swing capacity in the second Innings and his wicket taking ability cannot be managed easily by the debut players since they have only experience in the domestic red ball tournament. Since it is the Australia test tour it will be a great examination for them in terms of their ability to bowl at the right situation if they succeed in this series and lead the Team to the victory , there are some high chances to seal the permanent bowling place in the team for the Test series .
Which Debutant will replace Shami in the Playing XI?
Only 2 players are available to replace the seamer currently in the squad they are Mohommad Siraj,Navdeep Saini . Also, there is no official confirmation from the management to replace Shami there are some high possibility whether the replacement might be Karthick Tyagi or Thangarasu Natarajan in the squad ,but they cannot get into the playing XI easily over Saini & Siraj since they already placed in the squad before these players it will not be a great decision.So on comparing with Siraj and Saini, Saini will be the right replacement in the squad since he is one of the tall bowler like Ishant Sharma and has the capacity to bowl 140+kmph consistently also considering the pitches it will give him a good pace and bounce like hazelwood. Considering the future of the Indian Team , Saini should be backed for the rest of the series to prove his ability .
Will Natarajan Make his Debut in Test Match?
There are only two net bowlers/backup bowlers available in the squad (Karthick Tyagi & T Natarajan).T Natarjan might be choosen over Tyagi in the squad but it’s up to the captain’s decision and management to make him in the squad but test match is not like ODI /T20 to bowl 24/60 good balls in the game , there are some high composure needed for the individual bowler to survive above all if he do wonders in the test match it will be added advantage for the Team. Since, he is a left arm pacer he might get into the squad for Shami but playing XI chances will be decided only after the second test match in Border Gavaskar Trophy.
