Jadeja was kicked out by Sanjay Manjrekar
Sanjay Manjrekar surprised everyone by not including Ravindra Jadeja in his playing XI. India will need someone with more defensive technique at No 6 in England, says Sanjay Manjrekar. Sanjay Manjrekar has replaced Ravindra Jadeja with batsman Hanuma Vihari in his team.
Hanuma Vihari should get reward
Sanjay Manjrekar said, ‘I think the English condition will be cloudy with sunshine. In view of such circumstances, I am choosing the team. At No. 6, India will need a batsman like Hanuma Vihari. Manjrekar said, ‘He should be rewarded for Hanuma Vihari’s brilliant innings before getting injured.’
Ishant Sharma was also not given place
Let us inform that Hanuma Vihari scored 161 runs in 23 balls in the Sydney Test match against Australia in January this year. At the same time, Sanjay Manjrekar has chosen Mohammad Siraj in place of veteran bowler Ishant Sharma. Instead of Ishant Sharma, Sanjay Manjrekar has shown his trust in Mohammad Siraj.
