Rohit-Dravid came to their senses after the second test, included forgotten Ajinkya Rahane in the playing XI of the third test.

Ajinkya Rahane: The much-awaited 5-match Test series between India and England (IND vs ENG) has started. In the first match played in Hyderabad, India lost by 28 runs, while in the second match the hosts made a comeback and won by 106 runs. Now the third match of the series is to be played from February 15, for which the selection committee led by Ajit Agarkar has not yet announced the squad.

There is a possibility that the team for the last 3 matches of the series will also be announced on 7th or 8th February. It is believed that the selection committee may drop players struggling with poor form from the team and give a chance to experienced batsmen like Ajinkya Rahane.

35-year-old Ajinkya Rahane last played a Test match for Team India on the West Indies tour in July. After this, he was dropped from the team against South Africa. But now he may make a comeback against England

Rahane has so far played 85 Test matches for India, scoring 5077 runs at an average of 38.46. During this period, he has scored 12 centuries and 26 half-centuries. Considering his experience, he can be included in the Indian team for the remaining matches against England in place of out-of-form Shreyas Iyer.

Team India’s star batsman Shreyas Iyer scored 27 runs with the help of 3 fours in 59 balls in the first innings of Visakhapatnam Test. At the same time, in the second innings also he returned to the pavilion after scoring 29 runs in 52 balls. Not only this, Iyer’s bat remained silent in the Hyderabad Test also. He played innings of 35 and 13 runs there.

Iyer had also proved to be a flop on the South Africa tour before England. In such a situation, considering the importance of the series against England, the selectors can drop Shreyas from the team. In his place, Ajinkya Rahane can be included in the squad after a long time.
