India has been hit by late injuries. The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has confirmed that captain Rohit Sharma and moderator Navdeep Saini will not be available for the Second Test, while KL Rahul was hit in the arm during a netball session and may not recover in time. The away team can hardly make many optional changes.
Here is India’s predicted lineup for the second match against Bangladesh.
Opener: KL Rahul (c), Shubman Gill
India’s batting coach Vikram Rathour stated that Rahul’s injury was not serious, while reinforcing his claim that he will be available for the pitching match in Mirpur. If he doesn’t recover, Abhimanyu Easwaran could make his international debut.
Shubman Gill impressed with a ton in the second inning in Chattogram, and he will want to take advantage of the opportunity again.
Middle level: Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (week)
Cheteshwar Pujara, India’s vice-captain in the series and likely captain for the Second Test, was one of the best performers in the first contest. He scored a patient 90 in the first inning and followed by a century in the second essay, breaking his drought.
Virat Kohli had to spend some time in the middle in the second inning. He will want to take a sheet of paper from Pujara’s book and eventually score another hundred Tests.
Shreyas Iyer jumped at the chance to make a valuable contribution to Chattogram, while Rishabh Pant also played her part. The duo will want to add some intent to the middle order.
Almighty: Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel
Surprisingly Ravichandran Ashwin wasn’t too involved on the ball in the First Test as he looked a bit off-beat and hit only one racket over the course of two innings. Veteran cameramen will want to get in on the action in Mirpur.
On the other hand, Axar Patel showed himself in the second half with a great display of control. The left gyro will be a difficult problem to deal with in the Second Test.
Saurabh Kumar may have to wait a little longer for his debut.
Throwers: Kuldeep Yadav, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj
India is unlikely to make any changes in bowling. Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Siraj were bowling well in the First Test, and the guests had no reason to shuffle things and bring in either Shardul Thakur or Jaydev Unadkat as neither of the catchers had too many blocks. amount of work.
Kuldeep Yadav, who was rated Man of the Match in Chattogram, will be India’s biggest weapon against the Bangladeshi players.
