Shubman Gill

Indian team's opening batsman Shubman Gill has disappointed everyone with his batting in consecutive test matches. If we look at his last 10 Test innings, he has scored only 160 runs at an average of 17.77. Not a single half-century has been scored in the last 10 innings. Shubman Gill has become a matter of concern for the Indian team. In view of this, there is a possibility that he may be dropped from the team in the Test match to be held in Visakhapatnam from 2 February.

Despite batting calmly on the South Africa tour, Gill has failed to score a half-century in Test cricket. He scored his last century on 9 March 2023 against Australia in Ahmedabad. Gill's recent innings have seen scores of 13, 18, 6, 10, 29*, 2, 26, 36, 10, 23 and 0, while the current Test average has dipped below 30.

Will Rajat Patidar get a chance?

Rajat Patidar

Shubman Gill's poor batting has forced him to look for alternatives. Since the number three position is important, Rajat Patidar's name is being considered for the next match. Patidar, who was included in the team after the absence of Virat Kohli, performed brilliantly in domestic cricket. His recent record in the Ranji season and last season shows his ability to make significant contributions to the team.
