Coach should pay attention to Rahul and Chahar
Indian cricket selectors have asked the team coach VVS Laxman to pay attention to Rahul and Chahar's fitness because both players are returning from injuries.
“Rahul and Chahar are important cog in the wheels of Indian cricket team,” one of the selectors told InsideSport.
“We want them to be completely fit. We have requested Laxman to monitor them. Rahul has to join the squad for Asia Cup. Chahar is also on radar. We just want them to stay completely fit.”
Rahul returned to the Indian team after recovering from sports hernia surgery and COVID-19. Rahul's most recent appearance was in the IPL in late May. Chahar played his last game in February before missing the entire IPL season.
The BCCI has selected Gill, Rahul, Dhawan, Kishan, and Gaikwad as openers.
'India is not going to be easy’
In an interview with IANS, Burl discussed the upcoming series against India.
“We would like to try and win the series,” the Zimbabwe all-rounder said. “How we do that, I don’t mind that as long as we get the wins. But it’s India and one of the best teams in the world.”
“They are not going to put up an easy fight; it’s going to be difficult. Hopefully, with our home ground advantage, we can try and pull a cat out of the hat and put out something special.”
Burl said Rishabh Pant was his main inspiration. However, he will not meet Pant on this tour because Samson and Kishan will be the primary wicket-keeping options. Pant is currently resting for the upcoming Asia Cup. He has yet to face Zimbabwe in his professional life. Meanwhile, Burl will face India for the first time in the ODI series.
