The five-match Test series between India and England will start on August 4. Given the English conditions, Indian batsmen have a big responsibility in the series. It is particularly interesting to see how India’s top-order batsmen react to the swing deliveries of James Anderson and Stuart Broad. Rohit Sharma will have a good chance to prove himself as a Test opener in this Test series. However, following the departure of Shubman Gill, suspense remains about who his partner is. It is believed that Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul support Hitman. Former Indian cricketer and critic Akash Chopra has commented on this.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Akash said he hoped Mayank Agarwal would enter the Test series with Rohit Sharma as an opener. According to him, the former cricketer said KL Rahul could be seen playing in the middle order if he was allowed to. Akash has said that he has to field five bowlers in the Team India Test series. He said three fast bowlers and two spinners would be good options. According to the former opener, Jaspreet Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and Mohammad Shami should be given a chance to triple the line and Virat Kohli should trust Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in the spin.

Akash said the absence of Ben Stokes would be a huge benefit for India in the Test series. He said, “India will benefit greatly from the absence of Ben Stokes. He is the only two-man team. In the absence of Stokes, Team India host tail batsmen can be ruled out quickly.
