Captain Rohit Sharma has not tampered much with the playing eleven in the World Cup 2023. After Hardik's exit, Rohit has taken the field with the same eleven players in every match. However, the Indian captain is preparing to play a master stroke in the final match against Australia. If reports are to be believed, Rohit can give a chance to R Ashwin in the playing eleven in the title match to be held at Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium.
In fact, the pitch on which the final match is to be played between India and Australia is expected to provide a lot of help to the spin bowlers. Secondly, Ashwin's record has always been strong against Ahmedabad and Australia.
If Ashwin enters the playing eleven, then Mohammed Siraj may have to sit out. Ashwin's experience can also be useful to Rohit in a big match like the final. Ashwin has also been seen practicing vigorously in the nets. At the same time, Siraj's performance has also not been special in the last few matches.
