Virat Kohli will not play in the three matches of the four-Test series against Australia and because of this, the batting of Team India looks a little weak. It will be very interesting to see which player will be given a chance in the team in place of Virat Kohli and this is also a great tension for Team India. Now former Australian cricket team fast bowler Glenn McGrath has expressed the hope that KL Rahul can be given a chance in the team in place of Virat.
McGrath said that India had started well in the first Test, but could not win. The hosts bowled brilliantly in the second innings. At the same time, he said that Virat Kohli is a very effective and talented batsman as well as an aggressive captain and it is not easy for anyone to fill his place but it is a big opportunity for new players. He advised Team India that KL Rahul could be included in the team in place of Virat Kohli.
At the same time, Glenn said that Team India also has another option in the form of Shubman Gill and he did well in the ODI series. Due to playing good innings in ODIs, his confidence is also increased at this time. He needs to think a bit about his batting as he was dismissed in the same way in both innings of ODIs. He will have to face bowlers like Cummins, Hazlewood, and Stark and will have to focus on his batting.
Let us tell you that Team India lost the Adelaide Test match by 8 wickets and the second match of the four-match Test series will be played in Sydney from 26 December. Now Rahane will lead the team in the next three Tests, it will be interesting to see which bowler will be included in the playing eleven in place of Shami.
