The 2021-23 season of the World Test Championship ended on Sunday (June 11). In the final match of the tournament, the Indian team lost to Australia by 209 runs. After the defeat, the Indian team will be on rest for almost the next month. India is scheduled to tour the West Indies in the month of July. Before that, an important news is coming out. This news can be called happiness for Yuva Yashasvi Jaiswal.
Due to the postponement of the India-Afghanistan series, Rohitsene got a month’s rest. All the players are now on rest for the next one month after conceding defeat in the WTC final. But even so, captain Rohit Sharma () will also be rested for the series against West Indies. India have a total of 10 matches to play in the West Indies tour. It includes two Tests, three ODIs and five T20 Internationals. According to reports, Yashasvi Jaiswal (), who has made his batting debut in IPL 2023, may be included in the squad for these three series.
India’s West Indies tour will last for two months, July and August. The tour will begin on July 12 with a Test series, followed by ODIs and the final T20I series. According to media reports, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara may be rested for the Test series against West Indies. In this case Yashasvi Jaiswal can play the role of opener for India along with Shubman Gill.
Jaiswal is likely to come in to bat at number three. But the young batsman also has the experience of playing as an opener. Jaiswal scored 625 runs in 14 matches while playing for Rajasthan Royals in the recently concluded IPL 2023. He was the fourth highest run scorer in the season. Jaiswal has scored 1845 runs in 15 first-class matches in domestic cricket. His best innings in first-class cricket is 265 runs. Meanwhile, he has scored 9 centuries while maintaining an average of 80 runs. (‘This’ young opener will replace Rohit! A chance to get a chance in the playing eleven during the West Indies tour)
