Since Rishabh Pant was relieved of his national duties in Bangladesh on Sunday, December 4, rumors have abounded around probable disciplinary or Covid-19 situations. It didn't help that teammate KL Rahul failed to provide an explanation for the wicketkeeper's absence from the current ODI series.
The India vice-captain, who had assumed wicketkeeping duties, had admitted after the first ODI, "I'm not really aware, to be honest." To be quite honest, I just learned that he was being freed in the dressing room. I have no idea why; perhaps the medical staff will be able to provide more information on this.
But per to information obtained by Cricbuzz, Pant has asked the team management to be excused from the ODI series. Upon his arrival in Dhaka from New Zealand, he spoke with the team's captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid. More specifically, Pant spent a day in Dhaka and is said to have taken part in the netting before requesting leave.
The precise reason for his request is unknown, according to sources, but it can be said with some degree of assurance that neither disciplinary problems, as has been suggested, nor a Covid-19 crisis exist. Pant will be back for the Test series beginning on December 14, according to the management. Ishan Kishan's membership in the management prevented them from looking for a replacement.
For the record, according to a statement from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), "Rishabh Pant has been dropped from the ODI team after consulting with the BCCI Medical Team. Prior to the Test series, he will join the group. A replacement has not been looked for."
Axar Patel, regarding whom the BCCI release stated, "Axar Patel was not available for selection for the first ODI," was also absent from the opening ODI. According to information obtained, Axar was not selected for the first ODI after being struck on the ribs while batting at the nets. He should shortly be available for the games.
Mohammed Shami's availability for the Test series is unclear at this time. The seasoned pacer has reported to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru rather than traveling to Bangladesh. Due to a shoulder injury, it was decided that he would not be able to play in the ODIs. The management of the squad is still expecting comments from the NCA.
The popularity of T20 leagues has increased the relevance of cricket, which continues to be one of the most popular sports in the world, particularly in the nations that make up the "big three": Australia, England, and India.
Huge crowds attended England's T20 and ODI series versus India because the two teams had different degrees of success: the Asians won the 50-over competition while the "three lions" won the T20 series.
These high-profile games continue to draw the largest crowds, along with the Ashes, although the Indian Premier League and the Big Bash have gained new fans. As a result, we will now discuss how to place bets on the sport, emphasizing the best markets as part of our own special devotion.
