The first Test of the 4-match series between India and Australia is to be played in Nagpur from 9 February 2023 and people are now discussing about the Playing 11 that what can be the possible 11 against Australia in BGT (Border-Gavaskar Trophy).
On the other hand, there are reports of the Indian cricket team landing in Nagpur with 4 spinners. If this happens then Team India can land with a fast bowler. Opting for four spinners and two fast bowlers, Rohit Sharma will have to hand over wicket-keeping to KL Rahul.
Rohit as a opener is fix without any doubt and Shubman can be the face of non-strikers end as in opening pair with Rohit Sharma. Now if we talks about 3rd and 4th position then it is expecting that Pujara will come above and Virat after 2 down.
According to some reports it is been saying that because of Rahul presence in Team, the International debut boy KS Bharat (Kona Srikar Bharat), born on October 3, 1993 in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, may get in trouble in the Team and can’t able to get the place. But according to our reports KS Bharat can get the chance in the playing 11 and there can be the two wicketkeeper options for Indian team.
Apart from this, it is not possible for the world’s number one batsman Suryakumar Yadav to make a Test debut in T20I International under any circumstances. Shubman Gill, who scored centuries in all three formats of cricket, is also expected to get a chance to bat with Rohit Sharma as opening partner and KL Rahul is likely to play in the middle order in this series.
Team India can play with 3 spinners and all 3 will be the good choice as they are all-rounders faces – Jadeja, Axar Patel, Ashwin. If we talk about pacers then Rohit will try to include his first choice i.e. Mohammed Shami because we have seen he has really well bowlder for team whether in home grounds or overseas.
And the 11th player can be seen in the face of Mohammed Siraj as he has done well in the previous test games.
