Should Virat & Rohit play a Ranji Match?

Skipping the 3rd ODI against New Zealand on 24 January 2023, experts think that Virat & Rohit play a Ranji Match!

India are set to play much awaited Test Series: Border-Gavaskar Trophy vs Australia at home in February 2023. A lot is expected from both sides as the result of this series will have a major impact on the World Test Championship Points Table. Currently Australia is at top spot with 75.56 win percentage and India is at the 2nd spot with 53.93 win percentage. India needs to win the series 3-1 to secure their place in the final. Meanwhile Australia has already qualified for the world test championship final but they have lost the last three editions of Border-Gavaskar Trophy, 2 out of these 3 losses came in their own backyard.


Cricket Experts and Ex Cricketers have suggested that Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma should skip the last ODI vs New Zealand and brush up their test skills by playing a Ranji match before the series vs Australia.

Playing a Ranji game can be very beneficial for both batters as they can get to quality bowling attacks in the Indian conditions and especially they will get to play top quality spin bowling which is a very important factor when playing in India. Although our batters have intense net sessions to be match ready for such challenges, having the option to play a Ranji game is something they can make good use of.

In form Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma before a test series are a nightmare for any opposition and a huge plus for Team India. Let’s see what approach is chosen by our players. We hope to see them play at their best and win the series for Team India.
