WE PREVIEW the final Test between India and Australia at Dharamsala and talk about the possible changes both teams might come up with. We also touch upon the final Test between New Zealand and South Africa and share our captain and vice-captain picks.
Tim Southee, Ross Taylor and Trent Boult will not play this final Test for the Kiwis. However, for the Proteas, Quinton de Kock will take to the field. While creating teams, keep the rough weather of Hamilton in mind.
Virat Kohli is in doubt to play this game at Dharamsala and it would be better to not pick him considering his injury and form. As per reports, the wicket might aid the seamers.
Kevin O'brien is back into the Ireland team and after his match-winning heroics in the fourth ODI, it would be a risky move to not pick him.
We are still unsure about Kevin O'brien's fitness and with the category changes, we are not taking any risk. We would like to take pointers from the last game.
Continue to expect surprising changes in team selection from Ireland, especially now that they are 1-0 down in the series. It is going to be a tight budget round. However, avoid experimenting too much.
Mitchell Starc and Mitchell Marsh won't be playing this game. Glenn Maxwell and Pat Cummins might come in for the Ranchi game. For India, Murli Vijay is likely to return as an opener. We expect the pitch to crumble quickly.
Trent Boult and Ross Taylor have been ruled out of this game. The weather is likely to be rough too. Also, SA might field an unchanged line-up. We expect some seam assistance for the pacers. Kiwi batting looks a little weak.
This will be a tight budget round and we would suggest not to make any silly errors. Also, don't experiment too much as there could be some selection surprises.
