India can make two changes in playing XI for Ranchi Test
Some Indian players are regularly playing in the Team and might be given rest for the third match as India has won the series. The two players which can be given rest in the last Test match in Ranchi are-Ravindra Jadeja and Ishant Sharma.
Kuldeep Yadav replacing Ravindra Jadeja: Ravindra Jadeja is playing in the team for a long time. After the ICC World Cup 2019, the allrounder is regular in the team. He played the ODI series, T20I series and Test series in West Indies. Then, the allrounder played T20I series against Proteas, and currently, he is playing the Test series against them. So, he could be given rest for the last Test match in Ranchi.
Kuldeep Yadav can replace the allrounder as the chinaman has not played a Test match. This will be a golden opportunity for Kuldeep to showcase its talent.
Hanuma Vihari replacing Ishant Sharma: Hanuma Vihari can also replace Ishant Sharma in the last Test match. The pacer has played the Test series against West Indies which ended in September where he had a crucial role in the team. Hanuma Vihari was given chance in the first Test match against Proteas but was dropped from the team in the second Test match. He can be the option for the third Test match played in Ranchi.
