IND vs AUS: Will he be strong for Gill?

India vs Australia 1st Test: As the Test series between India and Australia begins in Nagpur from February 9, setting the batting order has become a big challenge for India.

Test series between India and Australia is going to start. There will be a war of words between the two teams from February 9. As the first match is going to be held in Nagpur, both the teams are gearing up for victory. Along with this, discussions are also going on about Team India’s playing 11, batting combination and bowling combination. Especially setting the batting line-up has become a big task for Team India. In fact, after Shreyas Iyer’s injury, Team India is looking for an answer to a big question.

The question is who will replace Shreyas Iyer. There is no shortage of players to take his place in the team. Batsmen like Shubham Gill and Suryakumar Yadav are in this team. Gill is in fantastic form. He has declared himself a strong contender for inclusion in the playing eleven after scoring centuries in ODIs and T20Is. However, the question is whether Shubman Gill will get a chance or not. What will his batting order look like if he joins the team? It also remains to be seen.

Will he play in middle order or opener?

Shubman Gill started his international career as a Test opener. Gill also played some good innings during the tour of Australia. But, this player could not perform consistently in this format. Gill test average is only 32. Even though Gill is in form now, it is not right to keep him out of the team. And in such circumstances, does Team India think of opening Gill again in the Test? That means wait and see. Currently, Rohit and Rahul are the openers in Tests. Rahul’s performance as an opener is also average. His Test average is also less than 35. So will Team India sacrifice Rahul keeping Gill’s form in mind? Will Rahul be played in the middle order? It remains to be seen. Rahul has excelled in the middle order in the ODI format. It seems that Team India is likely to think the same in the Test format as well.

According to reports, there was also talk of giving Shubman Gill a chance in the middle order. Gill scored a double century in the middle order during the Australia-A tour. Gill can play spinners well. So, this player can be used there as well. It remains to be seen whether Suryakumar Yadav will play in the midst of all this.

India’s playing XI ?

Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill, Srikar Bharat, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Akshar Patel, Mohammad Siraj, Mohammad Shami.
