shubman gill batting order: shubman gill will bat in middle order: shubman gill will bat in middle order

Kanpur
In the first Test against New Zealand starting on November 25, there is a lot of possibility that the Indian team management will get Shubman Gill to bat in the middle order. The team management wants to test Gill’s attacking style in the absence of the big players.

It is learned that he has been told that he will bat in the middle order in the first Test against New Zealand in Kanpur, where Ajinkya Rahane will lead the side in the absence of Virat Kohli. With Rohit Sharma missing for this two-Test series, it is a great opportunity for the team management to test Gill’s prowess as a middle-order batsman. Kohli will return to the team for the Mumbai Test while Rohit will tour South Africa.

Rahul-Mayank will open!
Lokesh Rahul, who is running in excellent rhythm, will open the innings where Mayank Agarwal can play the role of his partner. It is understood that the new selection committee headed by Chetan Sharma and the current team management feel that they need at least one player in the middle order, apart from Kohli, who can trouble the opposition camp with his attack. He believes that Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Hanuma Vihari have almost the same style of batting.

Pre selector support
Former national selector Jatin Paranjpe, who gave Gill the chance to make his Test debut in Australia, also backed it. Paranjpe said, “I have always believed that uniformity does not help in team selection. I really think playing Gill as a middle-order batsman will help the team. It will always help in giving additional options.

Against New Zealand, Wriddhiman Saha is the main wicketkeeper of the team, who is known for his defensive batting unlike Rishabh Pant. Without Rohit, Kohli and Pant, the batting order would require aggressive batsmen and Gill is apt. He has almost all the shots. He can do well against the second new ball as well. Paranjpe said, “KL Rahul batted in the middle order and had some success early in his career. Shubman can repeat this. The young batsman does not have much trouble in changing his role according to the requirement of the team.

Shreyas wait will increase
If Gill is successful in the middle order, then after the return of Kohli and Rohit, it will put pressure on Pujara and Rahane to perform well. The selectors have included Shreyas Iyer as a specialist middle-order batsman but the Mumbai lad may have to wait for his Test debut. Paranjpe feels that there will be a chance for him in the coming times. He said, ‘Look, sooner or later, Cheteshwar and Ajju (Rahane) will not play. Hence, there will be a tough fight between Vihari, Shubman and Shreyas for the middle order places.

We are ready for spin challenge: Santner
New Zealand left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner said that he and his fellow spinners are looking forward to helping spinners in the Test series against India. India made a clean sweep in the three-match series against New Zealand after an early exit in the T20 World Cup.

New Zealand rested some of their players, including captain Kane Williamson, for the series. The World Test Championship will also start with the Test series between India and New Zealand starting on November 25.

Santner said after the third T20, ‘Hopefully the players will be ready for the first Test match in Kanpur. This would again be another quick turnaround. We have got some good spinners. We know spin will play an important role in this series. It is about making the most of the circumstances. We know how good bowlers R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel are in these conditions. We also have bowlers like Ayaz (Patel) and (William) Somerville who are keen to play on pitches that help the spinners.
