Former Indian cricketer Ajay Jadeja suggested that Rahul Tripathi and Rajat Patidar should be in Team India’s playing XI for the third and final ODI against Bangladesh to be played on December 10 in Chattogram.
The Indian Cricket Team has already lost the ODI series after losing the first two ODIs, which was their second consecutive series loss in Bangladesh. So, the final ODI will just be a formality for both teams, and they would like to try the benched players on Friday in Chattogram.
As the Indian team management can give chances to some of the youngsters waiting in the wings in the final ODI against Bangladesh, Jadeja said that Tripathi and Patidar should be given chances in Chattogram.
'I am Tripathi's huge fan because...'- Ajay Jadeja
Jadeja said that he is a big fan of Tripathi and Patidar has done very well, recently, and is in very good form currently. He reckons that this series can be the last opportunity for them.
“I am Tripathi’s huge fan because he has come in after putting the hard yards but the way I saw Patidar playing, there is a time for a youngster when he is playing well and has come through an extremely good form. It will be unfair to drop anyone but when the merry-go-round is going, why do you want these two players standing in the queue," Jadeja was quoted as saying.
“When you are playing everyone and want to give only one match and check, this is probably the last chance, they might not be there on the next tour."
Several experiments with the team have spelled down for the Indian Cricket team before the upcoming 2023 World Cup. On the premise of choosing the best possible eleven, the team management has made a number of changes without providing newcomers enough time to settle into the international arena.
