The Indian team has gone ahead 1-0 in the series and now the eyes are set on the last match. Team India would like to consolidate their position in the World Test Championship table with a series victory in this match. Please tell that Rohit Sharma is going to stay out of this match as well, in such a situation only KL Rahul will captain.

Only Gill-Rahul will start the innings
As far as the opening is concerned, in the absence of Rohit, once again Shubman Gill will start the innings with captain Rahul. Please tell that Gill had scored a brilliant century in the last match. At the same time, a good innings will also be expected from Rahul. This pair is performing brilliantly even after Rohit is not in the team.
middle order will be like this
Chances of change in India’s batting line-up are very less. Cheteshwar Pujara, who scored a century in the last match, will land at number three. And once again Virat Kohli will be seen at number 4. Both these batsmen are considered the backbone of the team. Virat was dismissed cheaply in both the innings of the last match, so he will also be eyeing a comeback. Shreyas Iyer will come there at number 5. This year has been nothing less than a dream for Iyer and he will try to end it on a happy note. Apart from this, the name of Rishabh Pant comes at number 6. Pant is also the wicketkeeper of the team.

Ashwin-Akshar will be all-rounders
Ravichandran Ashwin and Akshar Patel are set to be included once again as the two main all-rounders in the team. Ashwin did not do much in bowling in the last match, but runs came from his bat in the first innings. And Akshar has emerged as the new force in India’s spin department. This player took the wicket of 4 Bangladeshi players in the last innings of the match. In the second Test, Akshar will try to contribute with the bat as well.
There can be a change in the bowling line-up
There can be a change in the bowling department of Team India. Left arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav’s inclusion in the team is certain once again. This bowler made a wonderful comeback in the last match, taking a total of 8 wickets. Apart from him, fast bowler Mohammad Siraj will also be included in the playing 11. But in place of Umesh Yadav, the management can give chance to Jaydev Unadkat in the second test. Unadkat is a brilliant left arm pacer and has made a comeback to the Indian Test team after 12 years.
India’s probable playing 11 for the second test:
Shubman Gill, KL Rahul (c), Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Akshar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Jaydev Unadkat, Mohammad Siraj
