New Delhi: In the first Test against England, except for KL Rahul and Jadeja, none of the batsmen could do anything special. English fast bowler Anderson destroyed the top order of Team India. Everyone is criticizing Virat Kohli, Pujara and Rahane for their poor performance, but Indian team opener Rohit Sharma is also unable to do anything special in the Test. In every match, he makes some mistake or the other, in such a situation, his playing as an opener in the Test team is now raising questions.
How right to play Rohit as an opener in Tests!
Be it the World Test Championship against New Zealand or the first innings of the first Test against England, Rohit Sharma could not show the power of the bat. It would not be wrong to say that the way Rohit performs in ODIs and T20s is not the same in Tests. Could only score 38 runs. In this match, Rohit played well with other players, but if we talk about Test cricket, then there is a question on whether his place is made as an opener in the team or not.
Rohit Sharma has played 40 Tests so far in his Test career, in which he has scored 2215 runs. Team India has no shortage of young players and on the England tour, it is expected that such a player gets a chance to open instead of Rohit and Team India’s top order can be stronger.
Prithvi Shaw may get a chance
Prithvi Shaw has reached England straight from the Sri Lanka tour. Shaw is not a part of the first Test match yet, as he is in Quarantine. But this player has impressed the team management a lot with his game and only then he has been called to England after the players got injured. There is a glimpse of Sachin Tendulkar in this young player, the way he bats is brilliant. Shaw was running in poor form for some time due to which he was dropped from the team. But now this player is doing amazing, so it is expected that Prithvi Shaw should be given a chance along with KL Rahul.
