Veterans like Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma have not been able to score a single half-century in the entire match. Especially in the second innings, the Indian batsmen were seen surrendering. Meanwhile, there is talk that some major changes could take place in the Test series against England, which starts in August. Various predictions are being made mainly about the middle plate. Great Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has suggested a change in India’s opening pair. According to him, the opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill is likely to change.

In the Indian team, mainly Cheteshwar Pujara and skipper Virat Kohli have not scored a single century in the last two years. Pujara’s last century came on a tour of Australia in January 2019. He hasn’t been able to make any big plays since. After failing in the final, Pujara could be replaced by KL Rahul or any other batsman. However, Gavaskar disagrees and wants Pujara to retain his place in the team. However, Gavaskar has suggested that Mayank Agarwal should replace Rohit Sharma in the opener.
The Mayank-Shubman duo will open the practice match
The Mayank-Shubman duo will open the practice match. Meanwhile, anyone would be surprised to hear this. But this is true. The Indian team will play a practice match before the actual England Test series. The BCCI has requested the England Cricket Board to hold practice matches.

Gavaskar has given such instructions while talking to Sports Takshi.
