Team India are currently playing a white-ball series against West Indies at home. After this series, the Men in Blue will invite Sri Lanka for two Tests and three T20Is. It is pertinent to note that India lost their last Test series by a 2-1 margin against South Africa. They began the tour on a winning note as they emerged victorious in the first Test. However, it was followed by two consecutive losses.
Nevertheless, India would look to bounce back strongly ahead of the two-match Test series at home against Sri Lanka. India are yet to announce its new full-time captain in Test Cricket. As per reports, Rohit Sharma is the frontrunner to take the leadership role. In this article, we take a look at three Indian players who might retire from Test cricket after the series.
IND vs SL: 3 Indian Players Who Might Retire From Tests After The Series
Currently, India’s most capped Test cricketer, Ishant Sharma might not play Test Cricket for India again. He last featured in a Test match during India’s Test series against New Zealand in November-December 2021. He was included in India’s squad for the Test series against South Africa but didn’t get any opportunity to be part of the playing XI.
If reports are to be believed, the management is looking to groom young talents and has moved on from the tall fast bowler. Chances are pretty high that he won’t be selected in India’s squad for the Test series against Sri Lanka. It shouldn’t come as a surprise if he takes retirement from Tests after the series.
