Rohit Sharma Explains Mohammed Siraj’s Exclusion From Ahmedabad Test:
The reasoning behind Mohammed Siraj’s exclusion from India’s starting lineup for the fourth Test against Australia.
As Rohit Sharma said during the toss, “We would have batted first. We know what needs to be done. Mohammed Siraj is rested and Shami is back. It’s always nice to have some time off. We need to regroup as a team, you can reflect on so many things. Not the surface of what we saw in the first three Tests, looks like a good pitch, I hope it stays the same for all five days.”
Team India will try to turn things around on Thursday when they face Australia in the fourth and final Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after suffering a difficult nine-wicket loss in Indore.
India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma(c), Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Srikar Bharat(w), Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav
