Team India: Last chance to return to Team India, otherwise you will have to sit out till retirement
Newz Fast, New Delhi: There is no match between the two teams if we look at the reputation and experience of the players. The West Zone team has established batsmen like Captain Rahane, Prithvi Shaw, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shreyas Iyer and Rahul Tripathi.
It is not easy for Indian player Ajinkya Rahane to return to the national team. But when he leads the experienced West Zone side against the North East Zone side in the Duleep Trophy, his focus will be on sticking to his playing process.
