Pujara’s place is not made in Team India’s Playing XI, these 3 batsmen are ready for the third test


New Delhi: Cheteshwar Pujara scored 45 runs in 206 balls against England in the second test match played at Lord’s. Even though a few runs came off Pujara’s bat, but the way he batted is being questioned. Pujara’s slow innings of 45 runs in 206 balls bore the fans a lot. Pujara played very slow on the fourth day of the Lord’s Test. Pujara was missing the opportunity to score runs even on bad balls. On the other hand, Rahane showed some speed. Pujara has been battling poor form for a long time. In such a situation, due to slow batting, Pujara does not fit in the playing XI of Team India. Let’s take a look at who are the 3 players who can replace Pujara in the third Test against England in Leeds starting on August 25.

Mayank Agarwal

Mayank Agarwal is considered to be a big contender for batting in place of Cheteshwar Pujara at number three. Mayank Agarwal has more than 1000 runs in his name in Tests and his average is also 45.73. Mayank Agarwal has good experience in Test cricket. Mayank Agarwal can be a better option in place of Cheteshwar Pujara at number three. After Cheteshwar Pujara’s poor batting performance, questions are being raised about his place in the Test team.

Hanuma Vihari

If we look at the records of Hanuma Vihari, he is considered a strong contender in place of Cheteshwar Pujara at number three. Team India’s reliable batsman Hanuma Vihari is often in and out of the team’s playing XI. Team India can give Hanuma Vihari a chance at number 3 in place of Cheteshwar Pujara. 27-year-old Hanuma Vihari has scored 624 runs in 12 Test matches at an average of 32.84. Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara’s run is not taking the name of the end of the drought. Looking at Cheteshwar Pujara’s poor form, it seems that his Test career is now on the verge of ending.

Suryakumar Yadav

Suryakumar Yadav is considered a strong contender to bat at number three in the third test match. Cheteshwar Pujara’s performance is under question. Suryakumar Yadav can cut Cheteshwar Pujara’s leaf from the Test team. The Indian cricket team has a talented batsman like Suryakumar Yadav, who knows the art of playing more than one shot around the field and getting runs. Suryakumar Yadav’s entry in the Test team seems certain.
