Former opener Akash Chopra has suggested making some changes in Team India’s playing eleven for the third ODI against Australia on Wednesday. Men in Blue will only be proud to play as the hosts have already won the series by winning the first two matches. Australia were at their best as they made light of the visitors in the first two ODIs.
The Indian bowlers failed to leave any mark in both the matches as Australia won a landslide victory. In the series-opener, the home side rode for centuries Aaron Finch And Steve Smith posted a total of 374 for 6 before restricting the visitors to 308. 8. In the second game, Smith scored another century, taking his score to 389 in his favor. In response, India scored 338 for 9.
Akash Chopra’s changes in India’s playing eleven:
Bowling has been the biggest drop for India so far and surprisingly, Akash Chopra has suggested a change in bowling for the final game of the series. The former cricketer-turned-commentator has protested that T Natarajan and Kuldeep Yadav should replace Navdeep Saini and Yuzvendra Chahal in the upcoming game.
He made the observation in a video shared on his YouTube channel, previewing the third ODI between the two teams. Akash Chopra started with the hope that India would not make any changes to his batting line-up. Also, he also said that the team opener may release Mayank Agarwal.
He said, ‘I will not make any change in Indian batting, although the team can now release Mayank Agarwal. If you do it now, what’s the use? I do not think this is correct. He should still play Mayank Agarwal and play KL Rahul At number 5. He should not think of too many changes in his batting nor is there any scope for it. ‘
He further spoke on the bowling department and suggested two changes. Both Chahal and Saini proved expensive in the first two matches. Saini has scored 83 and 70 runs in the first two matches, while Chahal scored 89 and 71 runs. Chopra also said that I should play with him Mohammad shami And Jaspreet Bumrah.
“In bowling, you can definitely play the role of T Natarajan in place of Navdeep Saini and try to play Kuldeep Yadav in place of Chahal. that’s about it. If both Bumrah and Shami are fit and don’t have any naughty, then they are absolutely fine to play, please play them and don’t change anything, ”said Akash Chopra.
