new Delhi: After the embarrassing defeat in the first Test against Australia, the Indian team will have to return to the Melbourne Test. In the absence of Virat Kohli, there will be a lot of pressure on the team, in such a situation, to make the Test series equal, the guest team will have to press on. However, seeing the playing XI of Team India, it does not seem that the team management is afraid of defeat.
Team India’s weak batting line up
Prithvi Shaw, who is in poor form, has been dropped from the team. Now the pair of Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal will open. After which Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara will bat at number three. Virat Kohli used to land on the ground in number four, but now Ajinkya Rahane will replace him. After this, Pant, Hanuma Vihari and Jadeja will come to bat.
Ajinkya Rahane apologizes for big mistake, Virat Kohli gave such reply
Meaning that no experienced batsman has been included in the team in place of Virat Kohli. While the team had a good chance to try KL Rahul in place of Kohli and Hanuma Vihari could be rested in this match.
KL Rahul has played 36 Tests for the Indian team so far, in which he has scored 2006 runs. During this time, Rahul has scored 5 centuries and 11 half-centuries. While Vihari has scored 576 runs in 10 matches played. During which he has scored 1 century and 4 half-centuries.
Saha out of team after a match performance
Seeing this playing XI, big questions have arisen on team management. Hanuma Vihari could not do much in the Adelaide Test, he scored 16 runs in the first innings and 8 runs in the second. In such a situation, KL Rahul (KL Rahul) could be given a chance, who is much more experienced than him.
Perhaps Hanuma Vihari is trying to give the team another chance, but then the question arises, why this opportunity was not given to Saha (Wriddhiman Saha).
Is team injustice in India? Gautam Gambhir revealed
Pant was selected in the playing eleven instead of being unable to perform in just one match. While Saha’s experience is more than that of Pant.
Gambhir accuses team management
Gautam Gambhir has also raised questions on this decision to drop Saha (Wriddhiman Saha) from the team. He has said that the Indian team management has created ‘insecurity’ among the players.
He said that if Pant fails in the next two matches, will the same be done to him? It is unfortunate that Saha played just one Test in the series and was dismissed.
