Cricket is one of those sports that are fortunate enough to still be able to enforce this pandemic. The IPL was able to return this year, as was the Big Bash League. All of this is thanks to the bio-safe bladder that allows the sport to carry on and allows players to step into the bladder without risk.
India remains the biggest fan of cricket and the return of the test matches is sure to be an exciting time for them despite the pandemic. They find it hard to miss the best cricket games in the world as they are big fans of cricket tournaments.
Recently announced as India’s captain Virat Kohli’s approved paternity leave as his actress wife Anushka Sharma is pregnant with their first child. This will be done through the Australia Series, according to the Board of Control for Cricket in India or BCCI.
The statement by the BCCI states: « At the meeting of the selection committee on 26. October 2020 has Mr.. Virat Kohli had informed the BCCI of his plans to return to India after the first test in Adelaide. «
Jay Shah, the BCCI Secretary, said: « The BCCI has granted paternity leave to the Indian captain. He will return after the first test. «
Kohli and the rest of the Indian team will travel from Dubai to Sydney on a charter flight. You will share this with the Australian stars of the Indian Premier League. Kohli will have six more limited overs in Australia before going on paternity leave. Actress Anushka Sharma will give birth to a child in early January.
Kohli was considering going home even before paternity leave because he was worried about how the bubble life had affected him and the players. He was one of the hopes that the length of the tours should be taken into account as a pandemic breaks out.
Kohli said that sometimes it gets difficult because it repeats itself. It can be mentally stressful if this continues at a constant rate over such a long period of time. It has to be broken down, it has to be based on how the individuals are feeling, and I think conversations should be regular.
« You want players to be in excellent shape mentally and physically. « According to him. However, many die-hard fans seem to have a hard time understanding this. They say Kohli and the others should put their country first.
If Kohli is gone, Ajinkya Rahane could take the lead in the final three Tests for the Border Gavaskar trophy.
The national selectors also said that Rohit Sharma will be part of the test team. However, it is not included in the ODI and T20i series that will launch this month. Sharma was removed from all three formats after suffering a hamstring injury in the IPL.
Secretary Shah also spoke about it, saying, « In consultation with Mr.. Sharma, it has been decided to rest him so that the ODIs and T20Is will be fully fit again and he has been accepted into India’s test team. « Shah said that Sharma will be added to the testing team once he has fully recovered and achieved adequate match fitness. Sharma is still being rehabilitated for a ruptured abdominal muscle.
Another injured player is Wriddhiman Saha. Saha had a torn thigh and this was confirmed by SRH captain David Warner. This happened during Sunrisers Hyderabad’s IPL game on Jan.. November. Secretary Shah said Saha will be a dodgy start to the test series and whether he will be available for the upcoming series will be decided later.
The selectors also announced that KL Rahul will be the only wicketkeeper for the three ODIs. In addition to the T20is, Sanju Samson was added to the ODI roster. Samson will line up to make his ODI debut if he’s selected or plays the XI. Meanwhile, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, known as the backup bowler, has already retired from the games to cope with his workload.
Spinner Varun Chakravarthy was also dismissed for a shoulder injury sustained during the IPL. He was replaced by Thangarasu Natarajan. Kamlesh Nagarkoti will be a reserve player. The BCCI said Nagarkoti will work with the medical team on his bowling workload management.
The Adelaide opening test begins on Jan.. December and is the first overseas day / night test.
