Not one or two. Virat Kohli’s India are set to win the Mumbai Test with at least three changes. Ishant Sharma, Rabindra Jadeja and Ajinkya Rahane will not be in the Kanpur Test squad. There was talk of Rahane being dropped due to poor form. The reason for keeping the co-captain out, however, was that he had a minor hamstring injury in his left leg, which did not heal completely!
However, VVS Laxman himself is skeptical about the credibility of the demand to exclude the three cricketers. His argument is, when did these cricketers get injured? Why not, Virat Kohli did not say anything about all this in the press conference yesterday! Lakshman’s words cannot be blown away. Why not, Rahane batted in India’s practice indoors yesterday.
