Team India lost the second game of the ODI series against Bangladesh by a narrow margin of five runs earlier this week. India’s skipper Rohit Sharma braved a thumb injury to stroll into the batting at number 9 and score an undefeated century, but they could only manage 266/9 in their attempt to complete the 272-run mark. Star seniors like Rohit, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul returned to the lineup for the series but several youngsters, such as Shubman Gill and Sanju Samson, were unable to make the team.

Samson and Gill were both a member of India’s side during their last ODI series against New Zealand, but due to the return of other first-team players, they were unable to make the team for the Bangladesh ODIs. Baba Indrajith is one of several players who submitted a petition to claim a position in Indian teams across different forms, even though they are widely regarded as important players for the 2023 ODI World Cup.

The 28-year-old batsman has excelled for Tamil Nadu in first-class matches; in the most recent Ranji Trophy season, he hit 396 runs in three matches for the team with an average of 99. He hasn’t yet received a call-up from India, however, and the nation’s seasoned wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik has now commented on the 28-year-old player.

“It’s about time the selectors took a close look at his performances and gave him the chance to advance.” He has accomplished a lot, therefore there is no way they can prevent him from playing for India A, at the very least, according to Karthik.

Baba Indrajith, who has played for Tamil Nadu in 58 FC matches and amassed 3987 runs at a remarkable average of 53.16 throughout his career, will serve as the team’s captain in the next Ranji Trophy competition.
