Former coach supports young Shubman Gill, does not trust the pair of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul
The series between India and Australia is starting from 9 February.
The first match of the series between India and Australia will be played in Nagpur.
Nagpur. Former India coach Ravi Shastri says that Shubman Gill should be preferred over vice-captain KL Rahul in the playing XI in the first Test against Australia starting on Thursday (February 9) in Nagpur. Shastri said that the vice-captaincy should not mean that a place in the team is safe when a batsman like Shubman Gill is performing consistently. The former all-rounder said that no one is even close to Suryakumar Yadav at number five and he should be fielded in that order.
He said, “The decision to select Shubman or Rahul depends on the team management. Form matters a lot when someone is performing so brilliantly.” He said, “I have seen Gill and Rahul closely in the nets. Even if a tough decision has to be taken. I look at footwork, I look at timing. If Gill has to be preferred over Rahul then he should be. you have to see. I do not say that because of being the vice-captain, Rahul’s selection is fixed.

There is a heated discussion in Australia about making favorable pitches in India but Shastri said that there is no harm in taking advantage of the home ground. He said, “If someone asks me what kind of pitch is needed. what to expect. I would say that even after losing the toss, the ball started taking turn from the very first session. As a coach, I will only think how to beat Australia 4-0.

Former coach Ravi Shastri said that wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav will have to do his job well. He said, “I want to see Karishma. Kuldeep Yadav will have to do it. If you lose the toss and the wicket is not turning then a bowler like Kuldeep will prove to be effective. When the finger spinner is not getting help, then the leg spinner should show amazing.
He said, “India should think about winning 4-0. We are playing in our country. I have toured Australia twice with the team and I know what happens.
