Eng vs IND Test: Former India player VVS Laxman wants to see KL Rahul opening in England. He says that Lokesh Rahul should get a chance with Rohit.
VVS Laxman, the former veteran cricketer of the Indian cricket team, believes that the Indian cricket team should consider giving Lokesh Rahul a chance in place of Mayank Agarwal as the opening batsman.
Along with this, this former great cricketer of India has justified the decision of young batsman Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav to go to England. RELATED| Eng vs Ind: English cricketer Ben Stokes takes an indefinite break
Former India cricketer VVS Laxman said in a StarSports show that I want Lokesh Rahul to open for the Indian team on the England tour(Eng vs IND Test).
Because he is a great and world-class batsman. I am not saying that Mayank is not a great player of Agarwal. But Lokesh Rahul has shown his ability by scoring a century on foreign soil.
In such a situation, there is no better option for the Indian cricket team than him. Yes, Mayank Agarwal is also included in the Test team of this Indian team.
But I want to support Lokesh Rahul as an opener along with Rohit Sharma.RELATED| IND vs ENG: Before the Test series against India, Eng spinner Jack Leach advised his own team
VVS Laxman further says that I am a bit surprised that Lokesh Rahul was seen playing middle-order cricket in both innings during the warm-up match.
Does this mean that the selectors and their team management want him to bat for the Indian cricket team in the middle order?
He says that whenever you play an international match for your team, there is always a feeling of insecurity.
You always want as a batsman that whenever you get a chance in your team, you apply your formula on the field. RELATED| Saba Karim selected IND for T20 World Cup 2021 teams, Chahal and Shami out
The challenge in front of Mayank Agarwal is that with what technique he will have to bat against James Anderson and Stuart Broad.
The same Laxman said that I think Suryakumar Yadav and Prithvi Shaw have been called to England because we have five Test matches(Eng vs IND Test) in front of us.
This is a very big series and we all have a big challenge with coronavirus. In that sense, having a lot of openers is very good for us.
