The final of the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Test Championship will be played at The Rose Bowl Stadium in Southampton from June 18. There has been a lot of discussion about the eleven composition of Team India playing this game. There is suspicion as to whether Team India will go with three fast bowlers and two spinners or a combination of four bowlers and one spinner. Former national selector Sarandeep Singh has opined that Shardul Thakur should be included in India’s XI Eleven where Mohammed Siraj will replace the four fast bowlers for the WTC final against New Zealand.

Sarandeep’s selection ended with his tour of Australia earlier this year. Because of his batting skills, he preferred Shardul over Siraj. Shardul was a good example of his ability in Australia. Under current conditions, India could go on a match with three fast bowlers and two spinners, R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, from June 18. ‘If it’s cloudy, you can play with Ishant Sharma, Jaspreet Bumrah and Mohammad Shami with an extra-fast bowler. I would choose Shardul as the fourth fast bowler though Siraj also performed well.

“You need to bat in the lower order and Shardul provides that option. In Southampton, bowlers can also help and Shardul can swing the ball. He has many years of experience in domestic cricket. There are left-handed batsmen.
