New Delhi: After a humiliating defeat by an innings and 76 runs in the third test match against England, the big players in Team India can be blamed, which includes the name of Ajinkya Rahane. Ajinkya Rahane does not fit in the playing XI of Team India. India’s batting lineup is proving to be a flop, in which Ajinkya Rahane has been very poor. There are 4 players in Team India, who can bat at number 5 instead of Ajinkya Rahane in the fourth test match. The fourth test match will be played from tomorrow at The Oval.
Mayank Agarwal is considered a big contender to bat at No. 5 in place of Ajinkya Rahane. Mayank Agarwal last got a chance to play in the Brisbane Test. Mayank Agarwal did not play even in the first three Test matches against England, but he can get a chance in the fourth Test match. Mayank Agarwal has more than 1000 runs in his name in Tests and his average is also 45.73. Mayank Agarwal has so far scored 1052 runs in 14 Test matches for India at an average of 46. He has scored three centuries and four half-centuries in 23 innings. Mayank Agarwal’s average on home grounds is more dangerous than Australia’s legendary batsman Don Bradman. Agarwal has played innings of 215, 108 and 243 runs on Indian cricket.
If we look at the records of Hanuma Vihari, he is considered a strong contender in place of Ajinkya Rahane at number 5. 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 5 in place of Ajinkya Rahane. 27-year-old Hanuma Vihari has scored 624 runs in 12 Test matches at an average of 32.84. Test specialist Ajinkya Rahane’s run is not taking the name of the end of the drought. Looking at the poor form of Ajinkya Rahane, it seems that his Test career is now on the verge of ending.
Batting brilliantly against the new ball on the England tour, KL Rahul has shown that he can play at any number. In the second test match played against England at Lord’s, KL Rahul scored a brilliant century. Looking at KL Rahul’s excellent form, he can be sent to bat at No.5 in place of Ajinkya Rahane. If KL Rahul bats at number five, Mayank Agarwal can be fielded along with Rohit Sharma for the opening. KL Rahul also bats at number 5 for Team India in ODIs.
Suryakumar Yadav is considered a strong contender to bat at number 5 in the fourth test match. Ajinkya Rahane’s performance is under question. Suryakumar Yadav can cut Ajinkya Rahane’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.
