Indian fans received a big shock after South Africa outplayed India in Test and ODI series recently. South Africa managed to defeat India in the Test series 2-1 in spite of many less experienced players in their team. Similarly in the ODI series, South Africa defeated India in all three games despite the absence of their two crucial bowlers Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada.
Now, after a poor show in the IND vs SA ODI series, some Indian players will have to showcase a good job in the IND vs WI ODI series. If not, they might lose their spot in the ODI squad in the future. Here we talk about 3 Indian players who will have the last chance to retain their spot in the ODI squad during the IND vs WI ODI series.
IND vs WI: 3 Indian Players Who Will Have The Last Chance To Retain Their Spot In ODI Squad
3. Ravichandran Ashwin
Ravichandran Ashwin was picked for the IND vs SA series as an all-rounder. In two matches he played, the right-arm spinner picked just 1 wicket and scored 32 runs. Due to his inefficiency, he was also dropped from the final game. Ashwin managed to get a spot in the team due to the absence of injured Ravindra Jadeja.
Ashwin was out of the limited-overs squad for a long time since 2017. Now, he needs to prove that he is equally worthy in the limited-overs format as well. If Ashwin fails in the IND vs WI ODI series too, he might be dropped from the ODI squad in the future.
