A series of five Test matches between India and England is underway. India have performed well in this series but the Indian batting middle order is struggling to score runs. India’s Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane’s bat are completely silent. The No. 3 batsman in Test cricket is of particular importance but India’s No. 3 batsman is completely out of form. Many former cricketers in the cricket world have expressed concern over Pujara’s batting, and debate has begun on the names of players who have played in their place. Former Pakistan batsman Salman Butt has been added to the list. Salman has described the young batsman as ‘fit for pooja’.

The former Pakistani batsman has said on his YouTube channel, “Pooja is struggling. The situation is also very difficult. If India wants, they can give Suryakumar Yadav a chance. Everything depends on what the captain and coach think. Only three innings have been completed so far. I think it is too early to send any young batsmen in this difficult situation. This can be a really hard job for them. Pujara, on the other hand, is a very reliable batsman and has run in these conditions. They have failed so far but they should be allowed another test. He added, ‘It is not easy for any young player to face James Anderson and other bowlers in England. England’s bowling attack is good and conditions are tough. You see England players, they are playing at home.

Butt said of Rahane and Pujara’s poor form, “Pujara and Rahane are both top batsmen. Unfortunately, they are not in form now. Performance is not an easy task for any batsman, who has only played 3 innings so far, and it is too early to remove him from the squad.
