Rohit Sharma’s opening partner I Mayank Agarwal to open with Rohit Sharma after BCCI says to for Prithvi Shaw report Who will be Rohit Sharma’s opening partner in England? This player’s name has got a green signal
- Mayank Agarwal will open the innings in the Test series against England
- There was confusion about the opener after the injury of Shubman Gill
- KL Rahul has not been picked for the opening, clear in the reports
London: The Indian team will field Mayank Agarwal as an opener along with Rohit Sharma in the upcoming Test series against England. There are reports that BCCI has signed Mayank Agarwal’s name for the opener along with Rohit Sharma. KL Rahul, who opened the innings in four matches on the England tour last time, is not involved in the strategy for the opener this time and has been left behind by Agarwal.
According to the Times of India report, if everything goes well, Mayank Agarwal will open with Rohit Sharma. It was told in a report that the team management wanted to call Prithvi Shaw and Devdutt Padikkal to England for the upcoming Test series. But the BCCI rejected this request.
The Indian team needs a reliable opener at the moment as Shubman Gill is injured. Multiple reports suggested that Gill’s injury was serious and that he would return home. Gill’s absence has left a place in the top order vacant. Apart from Mayank and Rahul, Hanuma Vihari and backup opener Abhimanyu Eswaran are also contenders for the opening. Cheteshwar Pujara has also opened in Test cricket, but it is difficult for him to open in England.
Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal opened together in the 2019/20 domestic season, where India dominated South Africa and Bangladesh. Mayank opened with Prithvi Shaw in New Zealand. When Rohit Sharma made a comeback, Mayank Agarwal had to lose his place. After the return of Rohit, Mayank did get a chance to play the Test, but he had to bat in the middle order. After that he did not play Test.
By the way, who will be the real opening partner of Rohit Sharma, it will be known from the practice match. The five-match Test series between India and England will begin on August 4.
