Durham: The Indian team has to play a five-match Test series against England from August 4. After the injury of Shubmal Gill, now questions are being raised on who will open with Rohit Sharma. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are currently in England with Team India, so one of these two players will get a chance to open.
KL Rahul sure to get a chance!
KL Rahul played his last Test against West Indies in 2019 and he is in excellent form at the moment. He had scored a century for India in the practice match, so his play seems certain.
Rahul (KL Rahul) has given a big statement before the start of the Test series. He said that when I was dropped from the team, I went back to the coaches and discussed with them and watched a lot of videos. Wherever I was lacking in my performance, I tried to fix it.
He said, ‘As I said failures make you strong. This gives you a chance to pay attention. It’s no different for me, so I’m really looking forward to opportunities and trying to be calm and disciplined’. I’ve made mistakes and I’ve learned from them. I got stronger than him and then I got a good chance. Hopefully I will come out on the field and do well for the team.
KL is ready for every challenge
Part of the Indian squad for the five-Test series against England, Rahul not only scored a century in the three-day warm-up match against the County XI, but also played the role of a wicket-keeper.
He said, ‘It is always good to score runs in the white jersey (Test match). I had not played a Test match for a long time. So it was good to score some runs here. It is important for me to be patient and wait for my turn. I am working on my game, so it is good to spend time on the field and score some runs.
Mayank Agarwal will be disappointed?
KL Rahul is in great form at the moment and is all set to make a comeback. On the other hand, talking about Mayank, he is not able to perform anything special right now. In such a situation, it is being speculated that Mayank Agarwal may have to wait longer.
The fight will start from August 4
Either Rahul and Agarwal can be fielded to open the innings. Rohit Sharma is definitely a good player. Rahul and Agarwal have better techniques for English conditions and can then take decisions based on that. Let us tell you that India will play a 5-match Test series against England from August 4.
