Indian selectors are known to pick new players for a relatively low profile series. And it was the same case for the three-match One-Day International (ODI) tour to Bangladesh. But even if you haven’t made it to the Indian playing XI, your best chance is to wait for a straight series win and make a debut in a dead rubber.
Kedar Jadhav may have been excited after India sealed the series in the second match, but to his shock, India went in with just one change for the third ODI. Even in the past, Parvez Rasool had to warm the benches in Zimbabwe despite India sealing the series in the third ODI of a five-match series. In fact, India have lost many young talents due to their warming the benches.
So what happens to Jadhav? Does he get another lucky chance or is the India dream over. Catch all that in our fake Facebook post.
