Amid the speculation regarding the poor form of Yuvraj singh, many people saying he will be replaced by Virat Kholi and some saying Rahane and some other saying Suresh Raina. But the Selectors and coach have thought otherwise and have selected Rohit Sharma in the 3rd Test against West Indies which is already sealed by the Indian Team at 2-0.
Yuvraj was unable to convert his starts in the Delhi and Kolkata Tests against West Indies, managing 23, 18 and 25 in three innings. While in the other hand Rohit Sharma was performing well in the ongoing Ranji Trophy.
Rohit made a match-winning 175 against Railways and followed that up with 100 against Rajasthan, which have secured him a place in the 3rd Test squad.
Its difficult to see why Rohit sharma was selected ahead of Raina, who made an unbeaten 204 against Punjab in Uttar Pradesh’s opening Ranji game.
The rest of the test squad is unchanged.
India squad: MS Dhoni (capt & wk), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, V V S Laxman, Rohit Sharma, Ishant Sharma, R Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Umesh Yadav, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul Sharma, Varun Aaron
