India will not change in their playing XI: R Sridhar



The Indian playing XI was announced in advance but due to rain match didn’t start on the scheduled day. Due to the toss not taking place on day 1, the India team had a chance to make some changes in the playing XI for the final World Test Championship clash against The Blackcaps.

R Sridhar mentioned that there might not be any change in the playing XI for the WTC Final against New Zealand. Because the team which was selected is good enough to play in any conditions.

“The eleven that has been announced is eleven that takes conditions out of the equation. I think it’s the eleven which can play and perform on any given surface and any given weather conditions. Having said that, the toss is not yet over. So, if needed, a decision will be taken at the time of toss,” said Sridhar in the press conference.

R Sridhar’s assumption came true as India went to play the same playing XI and had a strong outing in the first session.
