Aakash Chopra says, "If Team India wants to win the series, then Rohit and Virat should be back in the team"

India and the West Indies cricket teams are going to face each other in the third and final ODI series on Tuesday in Trinidad. This is the series decider match, as Team India won the first ODI of the series while the West Indies won the second ODI. Both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli were rested for the second ODI match. Former opener of the Indian cricket team, Aakash Chopra, said that Team India should continue experimenting with management because this is the only way to go forward.
Aakash Chopra said that "if you were to look at the series for experiments, why stop? If you are going with the philosophy that I want to try a lot of Cricketers, I am going to give chances to the players who have not gotten enough play time. Why change if you have done it in the first game and you have done it in the second game? Just give more opportunities to the players who have not gotten enough opportunities in the past."
He then said that if the team wants to win the third ODI match of the series, they will have to bring back Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli into the batting line-up. " That’ll also mean the end of giving opportunities to someone like Sanju Samson or Surya Kumar Yadav; one of the two will have to sit out. Axar Patel won’t be getting another opportunity.
