KL Rahul India vs England Test Series : The Indian team will be seen playing its first test match against England just 2 days from now. The first match of the 5 test match series between India and England is in Hyderabad. The work of preparation and strategy for this is now in the final stage. Meanwhile, there is still suspense regarding the playing eleven of the Indian team. The role in which KL Rahul will be seen was not revealed, but now the cards are clearly visible.
KL Rahul will not keep against England
Before the India vs England Test match, it is now almost clear that KL Rahul will not be a wicket-keeper batsman in the Test series. If he gets a place in the playing eleven, he will play as a specialist batsman. This has been revealed by Team India’s head coach Rahul Dravid himself. According to media reports, the head coach has clearly said that KL Rahul will not play as a keeper in the Test series. This decision has been taken keeping in mind the conditions and duration of the series. That means, in such a situation, the doors have opened for the keeper in the team’s playing eleven.
Either one of KS Bharat and Dhruv Jurail may get a chance
KS Bharat and Dhruv Jurail have been selected by BCCI as keeper batsmen in the team. KS Bharat has already played a debut match for the Indian Test team. But he has not been given a place in the team for the last seven months. In such a situation, it is possible that Kona Bharat may be given another chance. Whereas if Dhruv Jurail is given a chance then it will be an opportunity for him to make his international debut. Who of the two will play will be revealed on January 25 at 9 am, when captain Rohit Sharma will take the field in Hyderabad for the toss.
KL Rahul’s excellent figures in the test against England
Meanwhile, if we talk about KL Rahul and look at his statistics in the Test against England, then he can be called quite good. KL Rahul has scored 847 runs in 12 matches so far against England. He averages 38.50 and has batted at a strike rate of 53.84. Rahul has scored three centuries and one half-century in Tests against England. His highest score against this team is 199 runs. If seen in this way, even as a specialist batsman, Rahul can be given a chance in the playing eleven of the Indian team.
