India squads for the last two Tests of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and ODI series announced: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) released the squad for the final two Tests of the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2022-23 and the three-match ODI series against Australia on Sunday (19 February).
Australia was defeated by India in both of the first two tests. Australia was dealt two test losses by India: first by an inning and 132 runs, and the second by six wickets. India are 2-0 ahead in the series now and required minimal effort to get those victories, therefore the selectors decided to keep the same squad.
Jaydev Unadkat, who was released from the squad for the Ranji Final, now he is added back to the India Squad. An interesting update is that KL Rahul failed in both games, and he hasn’t been appointed as vice-captain for the final two Tests.
