These matches will help the teams find the right balance in the team and find stability in the squad. Fans were a bit shocked after the squad was announced.
Fans were happy as some players were making a comeback but were also disappointed as many big players were given rest for the series after only 1 Test match. The fans are also worried that whether the team will be able to find stability before the T20 World Cup starts.
