Border Gavaskar Trophy: KL Rahul or Shubman Gill… How will the captain and coach solve the riddle of the opener?

New Delhi. Team India defeated Sri Lanka and New Zealand. But now Australia will be in front, which is currently playing high level cricket. There will be a close fight between the two teams. Both the teams will fight hard for the World Test Championship (WTC) final. The challenge in front of India is huge but injuries remain a big problem. Team India did not recover from the blow of the team’s star bowler Jasprit Bumrah that Shreyas Iyer’s injury raised concerns.

The Border Gavaskar Trophy is to start from 9 February. Before that, team captain Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid must have been thinking about the playing XI. The first concern will be who will play in place of Iyer in the first Test? Two options will be in his mind, first Shubman Gill and second Suryakumar Yadav. However, looking at Gill’s form, it can be said that he will be a part of the team. The young batsman has won everyone’s heart with back to back centuries.

Former selector made a big disclosure on Ishaan Kishan’s flop show, said – this is not the first time…

Who will open with Rohit Sharma?

The solution to the first problem will surely come out. But after that the second problem will be the opening pair. The question will be who will open with Rohit Sharma. Captain and coach will take risk on this decision, if successful then it will be icing on the cake. However, if seen, Shubman Gill will be the best option along with Rohit Sharma. The figures of the opening pair in the ODI series are testifying to this. A good partnership was seen between both the players. KL Rahul can play his role in place of Shreyas Iyer in the middle order.
