Could Kohli’s Departure Dent India?
After a humiliating loss in the first test at Adelaide, India head into the boxing-day test knowing they have a big void to fill in the absence of skipper Virat Kohli and also get back into the series. Kohli has flown back to India on the eve of the birth of his first child. Going into the test, India have a number of questions to answer and disappointments to put behind. Apart from Kohli’s absence, concerns loom over the form of opener Prithvi Shaw who was a major failure in the first test. Mohammad Shami may miss out from the test after injuring his bowling arm while batting in the second innings.
Australia on the other hand will look to cash in on the opportunities which could see them go 2-0 up in the series and retail the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Australia spinner Nathan Lyon said India have got enough players to fill in the “big hole” left by their skipper.
Gill, Pant in? Shaw, Saha out?
It could perhaps be one of the trickiest team selection debates currently going into the Melbourne Test. Prithvi Shaw one of the biggest letdowns from the first test could face the axe but his effective strike rate could still give him a nod. Or we could rather see Shubham Gill make his test debut. Aggressive batsman cum keeper Rishabh Pant could make it to the team over Saha. However, Saha’s cautious batting approach and keeping skills make him the preferred choice. The bowling department could see Mohammad Siraj make his test debut as Mohammad Shami has been ruled out. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja could sneak in as an additional cover in the bowling department.
