Former India cricketer Aakash Chopra has predicted that Team India opener KL Rahul will play in the first Test against Australia in Adelaide starting on Thursday. While Team India is taking this match in the form of Day / Night Test with pride .. who should be sent as opener along with opener Mayank Agarwal ..? Management has not yet received clarity on that. Young openers Prithviraj Shah and Shubhman Gill are in the race. In the recent practice match, they did not live up to expectations. With that .. Former India fast bowler Ashish Nehra suggested that KL Rahul should be given a chance to be the opener again.
Aakash Chopra reacts when KL Rahul’s name reappears as the opener. “Do not consider KL Rahul as the opener for the first Test. He has scored 2,006 runs in 36 Tests so far at an average of 34.59. It also includes five centuries. The statistics are good. But his scores in the last 10 innings of Tests are 6, 13, 38, 44, 9, 0, 2, 44, 2, 33 *. This calculation is likely to keep him away from the first Test, “said Aakash Chopra.
Rohit Sharma, who was injured at the end of IPL 2020 season, recently returned to Australia after regaining fitness. But in the wake of the corona virus outbreak, he will be on quarantine for at least 14 days. With that .. Rohit Sharma is away for the first two Tests .. Who will be playing as the opener in these two matches with Mayank is now a million dollar question.
