After the Test series against England, Team India has to take on the visiting team in ODIs and T20 format as well. Indian selectors have announced Team India for the T20 series, but in the meantime, the big news is that the 3 big players of India will not play in the ODI series. According to media reports, vice-captain Rohit Sharma, wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant and all-rounder Washington Sundar will be rested for the ODI series.
Let me tell you that the ODI series between India and England will start on March 23. All these matches will be played in Pune. In view of the increasing cases of Coronavirus in Pune, the ODI series will be played in the empty stadium. Now according to the news, fans like Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant will not be able to watch the fans on TV.
Why are Rohit-Pant and Sundar being given rest?
According to reports, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, and Washington Sundar are being given rest. These players have been playing cricket continuously since the last IPL. These players are also playing a four-Test series against England after the tour of Australia. And then they will also play a five-match T20 series. Staying in bio bubble for so long is very mentally exhausting. Then in April, IPL 2021 will also start, before which these players are being given rest. If these three players do not play, then it is expected that any player who performs well in the T20 series will get a chance in the ODI series.
