Did Team India cost dearly for not giving Shreyas Iyer a chance? Rahane was a flop in the last 5 innings


Team India: The last match of the Test series is currently being played between India and South Africa in Cape Town. Most of India’s batsmen were flop in the first innings and the team was reduced to just 223 runs. Apart from captain Virat Kohli, none of the batsmen could reach the half-century. In the last match too, the performance of the batsmen was disappointing, due to which the team had to face defeat. After the poor performance in the first innings, questions are being raised about many players of India.

For a long time, this senior batsman Ajinkya Rahane has been running flops. In this series, so far one half-century has come from his bat. The team management expressed confidence in him, but he did not live up to the expectations. Many people believe that if young batsman Shreyas Iyer had got a chance in his place, then the results could have been different. In such a situation, the biggest question is whether Team India has made a big mistake by not giving Iyer a chance? Especially when Rahane has been consistently disappointing.
