IND vs AUS: The Indian cricket team is clashing against Australia in the four-match Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Team India won the first two matches of this series unilaterally. But in the third match, the Indian team had to face a crushing defeat by 9 wickets. In such a situation, in the fourth Test, captain Rohit Sharma can make some major changes in the playing 11. Let’s take a look at how Team India’s playing 11 could be in the Ahmedabad Test.
Who will be Rohit’s opening partner?
In the Ahmedabad Test too, Shubman Gill can be seen opening the innings along with captain Rohit Sharma. Gill was included in the team in place of KL Rahul in the third match. However, he could not leave much impact on the bat. However, once again the team will have high hopes for this young player in the Ahmedabad Test.
Cheteshwar Pujara will come at number three. Pujara showed in the Indore Test why he is considered the team’s most reliable player in this format. On a difficult pitch where the rest of Team India’s batsmen were unable to even stand, Pujara, hit Fifty. Whereas Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer will come to bat at number 4 and number 5.
Both Virat and Iyer have not been able to do anything special so far. Especially on Kohli, more eyes will be fixed on Ahmedabad Test, because this batsman has not been able to score a century in Test for the last three years.
Ishaan will come in place of KS Bharat.
At the same time, a big change can be seen in Team India for the fourth Test. Ishaan Kishan can be given a chance by leaving out KS Bharat, who is continuously flopping in the series. Till now Bharat has not been able to make a single 30-plus score in this series. In such a situation, aggressive batsman Ishaan Kishan can strengthen the team. While Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Akshar Patel will be the spin-bowling all-rounders of the team.
Entry in Shardul’s team instead of Siraj?
A change can also be seen in the fast bowling department of Team India. Shardul Thakur can be given a chance this time along with Umesh Yadav, who performed amazingly in the last match. Shardul was out of the first three Tests due to his marriage. At the same time, Mohammad Siraj can sit out of the next match.
Possible India’s Playing XI 4th Test:
Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Akshar Patel, Shardul Thakur, and Umesh Yadav.
