Shubman Gill has been ruled out of injury in a five-match Test series between India and England. Team India has Mayank Aggarwal to play the opening role with Rohit Sharma. Speaking of Agarwal, his record as an opener is excellent. Despite not being able to perform well in the last few Tests, he has scored 1005 runs with two double centuries in Tests. Apart from Mayank Agarwal, India has the opportunity to adopt KL Rahul as an opener. Former India cricketer and commentator Akash Chopra believes this is not happening. He was surprised by reports that the team’s management was looking to field him in the middle order.
KL Rahul has batted as the most opener in the Test so far. Rahul has opened 33 of his 36 Tests for India. Rahul has scored 1915 runs at an average of 36.152 in these Tests. Akash Chopra on his YouTube channel said, “There are two main points to this story. First, there are Mayank Agarwal and Abhimanyu Eshwaran in India. The second is KL Rahul. But it is believed he will not open. The team management has already stated that Rahul is their choice in the middle order.
I mean it’s amazing that he said. After all, he has scored five centuries when he opens. Why do they suddenly want him to be middle-order now, I don’t know. I always thought he was a back-up opener. But clearly he is not. Even in exceptional circumstances. I understand but what I don’t understand is that KL Rahul is no longer opener, he is a middle order batsman, wow. India may also see Abhimanyu Eshwaran, a reserve player with the current squad, but Gill is expected to join the main team following his official departure.
