These 3 batsmen will replace Rohit Sharma in the test series! Dust will lick New Zealand


New Delhi: The three match T20 series between India and New Zealand is going to start from today. The 3-match T20 series will be played from November 17 to November 21. After the T20 series, a 2-match Test series will be played from November 25 to December 7. Rohit Sharma will not play in test series. BCCI has decided to rest Rohit Sharma. There are 3 batsmen who can open in the Test series instead of Rohit Sharma. Let’s take a look at those 3 batsmen:

1. Shubman Gill

Shubman Gill, who made his Test debut against Australia in December 2020, has once again been selected in the Indian Test team. Shubman Gill played the last Test for India in the final of the World Test Championship against New Zealand in June this year. Shubman Gill has played a total of 8 Tests so far and has scored 414 runs. During this, 3 half-centuries have come out of his bat. Shubman Gill has good experience of batting with a legend like Rohit Sharma, so he can play the role of an opener in the absence of Rohit Sharma. KL Rahul is already there to support the rest.

2. Mayank Agarwal

Mayank Agarwal is considered to be a big contender to bat in place of Rohit Sharma. Mayank Agarwal last got a chance to play in the Brisbane Test in December 2020. Mayank Agarwal did not play in the last Test series against England as well. 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.

3. Wriddhiman Saha

Wicket-keeper batsman Wriddhiman Saha, who has played a total of 38 Test matches in his career, can also take up the responsibility of opening the innings in the absence of Rohit Sharma. We are saying this because we all have seen him playing the role of opener for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL. Apart from this, Wriddhiman Saha is a better wicketkeeper than Rishabh Pant on Indian pitches. Wriddhiman Saha usually bats in the middle order, but can also open the innings if needed. Wriddhiman Saha has also scored 3 centuries and 5 half-centuries in Tests. His innings has always been beneficial for Team India.
