India made a comeback in the Melbourne Test against Australia on Tuesday. After a humiliating defeat in Adelaide, India equalized 1–1 in the series after a win in the Boxing Day Test. The third match of the series will be played in Sydney from 7 January 2021. Meanwhile, the guests are big news to the team before the final, the team’s star batsman Rohit Sharma will join with Team India on Wednesday.
After the return of Rohit, there will be a little selection headache for the Indian team before the crucial third Test. Rohit Sharma last opened in Test cricket, but Shubman Gill is good on his debut and also see who goes out of the team.
Meanwhile, former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar feels that Rohit should start the innings for India with Mayank Agarwal. He also said that Hanuma Vihari should be kept out of the team while Gill can be shifted to the middle-order position. Speaking after the match on Sony Sports Network, he said,
“I will have more Rohit in the opening. Gill will be in the middle order while Vihari will be out (playing XI) for the third Test. ”
Now that the team has won the Melbourne Test, will India make any changes in the line-up? But Rohit Sharma is a very good player and after sitting out for a long time, he will be desperate to play the last two Tests. But the team management will have to pay attention to the way he plays. Mayank Agarwal and Hanuma Vihari are the only two players in the firing line as they have struggled in all four innings.
Whatever would be a drop would be unfair as both players visited Australia last time. It is believed that Mayank can remain in the team and Vihari can be dropped while Rohit Sharma can also bat at five as Gill opened the innings on debut.
