New Delhi: Team India, captained by Virat Kohli, is facing England in a five-match series. The second Test of this series was played at Lord’s where Team India won the historic victory. But in the very next Test played in Leeds, England equalized the account by giving India an innings defeat. After this defeat, Indian team captain Virat Kohli would definitely like to make some big changes in his team. But in spite of this, there are some players on this tour, whom the captain will not be able to give a chance in the playing 11 even if he wants.
Abhimanyu Easwaran was included in the Indian team for the first time for the England tour. Easwaran was included in the team as a reserve opener for the England tour. However, it is very difficult for him to get a place in the playing 11. At present, the Indian team has many batsmen for the opening. Veteran openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul are performing very well. But if either of these two players gets injured, then Prithvi Shaw will take his place. In such a situation, this tour for Abhimanyu Easwaran will be cut on the bench itself.
Mayank Agarwal has the same fate as Abhimanyu Easwaran on this tour. After the injury of Shubman Gill, Mayank Agarwal was the biggest contender to open with Rohit Sharma on this tour. But just before the first Test, Mayank got injured and KL Rahul got his place. With this, Rahul has cemented his place by batting well on this tour. In such a situation, it is very difficult for Mayank to get a place in the team on this entire tour.
Team India’s star fast bowler Umesh Yadav finds it very difficult to get a chance in the entire series against England. This is because India has many excellent fast bowlers against England, who have completely confirmed their place in the team. Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj, Mohammed Shami and Shardul Thakur have all proved themselves on a few occasions. In such a situation, Umesh Yadav will now be able to get a place in the team only when two or three players get injured.
