The first match of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy Test series between India and Australia will start on February 9. It will be a four-match Test series, and if India win, they will reach the finals of the ICC World Test Championship. Team India is led by Rohit Sharma while Aussies are led by Pat Cummins. This test series is very important for both the teams due to many reasons. For some players, this is also the last Test series. Mainly these three Indian players are likely to say goodbye after the Border-Gavaskar Trophy Test series is over. Let’s see who they are. Jaydev Unadkat is the first among them. Jaydev may be the first player to retire from Test cricket after this Test series. Unadkat, who got his chance 10 years after his debut in Test cricket, has played only two matches so far. It is doubtful that Jasprit Bumrah will be selected for Team India again after his return to the team. So he might announce his retirement after the India-Auss Test.
R in Test cricket. There is no doubt that Ashwin is still a dangerous spinner. He has the ability to excel in batting as well. But, Ashwin is now 36 years old. Also Ravindra Jadeja and Akshar Patel are in the team to replace Ashwin. But Kuldeep Yadav is also expected to replace Ashwin’s spin position. Thus, there is a possibility that Ashwin will retire from red ball cricket after this Test series.
Umesh Yadav is another cricketer who may say goodbye to Test cricket after the India-Australia series. He was dropped from the team last year. But after performing well in the county championship, he was again selected for the team. Team India already has senior pacers like Mohammad Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj and Shardul Thakur. So it is doubtful that Umesh will get a place in the team in the coming days. If he does not perform well in this series, it is doubtful that he will play again in the red ball format. It would not be surprising if he announced his retirement after this series.
