The career of these 2 batsmen almost ended

Let us tell you that both Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane were getting continuous opportunities despite flops for a long time, but the name of the run was not taking the name of both of them. With these poor performances, the Test careers of Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane are almost over.

By dropping Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane from the Indian Test team, the selectors have vacated the number 3 and 5 spot for two new batsmen. The Indian team will need such batsmen in the middle order who can bat freely and can collect a lot of runs in a session.

These 2 new batsmen will enter the test series against Sri Lanka

Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer can replace Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane in the Test squad. In the Indian Test team, Shubman Gill will be fit to bat at No. 3 and Shreyas Iyer at No. 5.

The 2-match Test series against Sri Lanka will start from March 4. Shubman will strengthen Gill’s middle order. Gill has played mostly as an opener, but the team management will pick him at No. 3 as a specialist middle-order batsman.

This batsman can land at number 3 instead of Pujara

Shubman Gill can also replace Cheteshwar Pujara in the Test team. In the Indian Test team, Shubman Gill will be fit to bat at number 3. Shubman will strengthen Gill’s middle order.

Gill has played mostly as an opener, but the team management will pick him at No. 3 as a specialist middle-order batsman. Shubman Gill has the experience of playing on hard and bouncy pitches. There is no issue with technology.

There is a hunger for runs inside Shubman Gill. Last year, Shubman Gill has come out to bat at No. 3 in the Mumbai Test match against New Zealand.

This batsman can play at number 5 instead of Rahane

Shreyas Iyer is considered to be a strong contender to bat at number 5 in Test matches instead of Ajinkya Rahane. The Indian cricket team has a talented batsman like Shreyas Iyer, who knows the art of playing multiple shots all around the field and getting runs. He is an expert in scoring runs by raining fours and sixes around the field. Shreyas Iyer made his Test debut against New Zealand in Kanpur in November last year.

Shreyas Iyer played a memorable inning of 103 runs against New Zealand, scoring a century in the debut test match itself. Iyer plays in all three formats for India.

Shreyas Iyer has scored 202 runs in 2 test matches. Iyer has scored 947 runs in 26 ODIs and 809 runs in 36 T20 Internationals. Shreyas Iyer has scored 2375 runs in 87 IPL matches. Iyer has 1-1 century in Test and ODI.

Indian test squad against Sri Lanka:

Rohit Sharma (Captain), Mayank Agarwal, Priyank Panchal, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Hanuma Vihari, Shubman Gill, Rishabh Pant, KS Bharat, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Jayant Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah (Vice-Captain), Mohammad Shami, Mohammad Siraj, Umesh Yadav and Saurabh Kumar.
