New Delhi. The third match of the 5-match Test series being played between India and England is starting from Thursday. It will be interesting to see which players coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma will give a chance in the playing eleven. Four players included in the team have scored triple centuries in first class. The captain’s name is also included in this list.
After losing the Hyderabad Test against England, the Indian team made a strong comeback and won in Visakhapatnam. The 5-match series is currently tied at 1-1 and both the teams intend to take the lead by winning the third match. This test match is to be played in Rajkot. The news of giving a chance to Sarfaraz Khan, who has shown impressive performance in domestic cricket, is in full swing. Rajat Patidar made his Test debut in the last match.
India has 4 batsmen who have scored triple centuries
The Indian team playing the last three Test matches against England includes 4 players who have a triple century in their first class. There are two batsmen who have scored double centuries. Captain Rohit Sharma has a triple century in domestic cricket and his best score is 309 runs unbeaten. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has scored a triple century in first class thrice.
Indian wicketkeeper KS Bharat showed his strength in first class cricket and played the biggest inning of 308 runs. Sarfaraz Khan, who has been scoring runs continuously in domestic cricket, also has a triple century in his name in first class. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill have scored double centuries in domestic cricket. If coach Rahul Dravid gives a chance to all of them in the playing eleven, then India’s batting can be much better.
