The 34-year-old right-handed batter was dropped from the Test squad at the end of the 2021-22 tour of South Africa after a series of bad knocks. However, his recent performances in domestic cricket and IPL 2023 has offered him a way back into the squad.

Rahane brings the experience of 82 Test games for India with him and he is likely to replace middle-order batters Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav. Shreyas is ruled out due to an injury whereas KL Rahul lost his spot in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy due to his bad form. Surya who made his Test debut in the series against Australia misses out on the WTC finals. (Ajinkya Rahane Makes Comeback Into Team India Squad for World Test Championships Final)

The selectors have picked up Shardul Thakur over the fourth spinner Kuldeep Yadav after R Ashwin, Jadeja and Axar Patel. No place for Ishan Kishan as well, so KL Rahul and KS Bharat are the only wicket-keeping options for Team India.
