𝕁𝕚𝕠𝕋𝕧𝕧𝕚𝕟𝕖𝕖 –The second match of the series of Test matches between India and Australia will be played from 26 December.
After Virat Kohli’s return home, the captaincy will now be in the hands of vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane. Before the start of the second Test match against Australia.
Former Indian cricket team’s legendary cricketer Gautam Gambhir has said that in the absence of Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane should get down to bat at number 4 himself.
Apart from this, Gautam Gambhir also said that captain Ajankya Rahane should include all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja in his team in this match.
Who can also play the role of the fifth bowler of Team India? Talking to Cricinfo, former opener batsman Gautam Gambhir said that in the absence of Virat Kohli, the team management need not think much.
Because he has a great batsman in the form of captain Ajinkya Rahane. Which can fill the place of Virat Kohli, the captain of India. Gautam Gambhir asked for Ajinkya Rahane that he should field with five bowlers.
The same all-rounder player Ravindra Jadeja is also in his brilliant form at the moment. Off-spinner R Ashwin at No. 8 should feed. While playing with three fast bowlers should land in XI.
While advising Ajankya Rahane, veteran player Gautam Gambhir also said that he should come up and bat as a captain. And it should strengthen its grip on the match.
If they give an opportunity to either Lokesh Rahul or Shubman Gill at number 4, then it will be negative.
It is worth mentioning that India had suffered a crushing defeat in the first match of the series. And the Indian team lost that match in just 3 days.
Whereas on the second day of that match, India got their grip. But two hours after the start of the third day of play, India’s batting became like a deck of cards.
Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins gave a very dangerous bowling view in the second innings. On the basis of these two bowlers, India all out for only 36 runs in Australia. The Australian team got the target of only 90 runs and achieved this target at the loss of 2 wickets.
