India Vs Australia Border Gavaskar Trophy
Since there are sufficient signs that the team management won’t drop an out-of-form vice-captain, KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma was specifically questioned about his decision between Suryakumar Yadav and Shubhman Gill.
Rohit responded with a sardonic smile and a knowing nod, “Tomorrow 9 o’clock at the toss.”
The Indian skipper made it clear that although Shubman Gill’s excellent form is vital, so is Suryakumar Yadav’s extraordinary capacity to control a raging bull like Nathan Lyon. The playing eleven would be chosen based on which talents are appropriate for each playing surface.
It’s going to be difficult. We are aware that several of the players are in good shape, which is encouraging for the team, Rohit added.
“You have a problem with the selection, and it speaks highly of the performers. From the team’s perspective, this is very important; we must visit each location, inspect the field, and select the top eleven. The skipper made it plain that they had been doing that in the past and would continue to do so.
The boys are getting a very clear message. To play horses for courses, we are prepared. We have to bring in anybody or whatever we pitch. Just like that. We have discussed that with the men. He was more focused on driving home the point, saying, “We will have to examine the circumstances and determine who are the proper folks, so we are fairly open with any choices.”
When asked who among Suryakumar and Gill was more suited for the series opener in Nagpur, he deftly dodged the question.
They offer us a variety of contributions. We all know that Gill has been in excellent shape for the past three to four months. many large hundreds as well. In T20s, Surya has demonstrated his skills and the type of game he can bring to Test cricket.
We haven’t made a decision about which of the two men will play yet, but both are excellent options for us. I won’t offer you guys anything today,” the smile returned, sensing the media group’s desperation.
The captain declared that he is willing to walk the talk.
“I mean what I say when I speak. You must follow the rules that apply to that specific Test match. You must choose that specific man. In a Test match, things change every session and every day.
Additionally, he omitted to say if he preferred K S Bharath to Ishan Kishan.
“You must make the courageous decision. The way Rishabh batted for us was crucial. In the midst of the order, we have men who can perform that duty. We have a strong top order and all of our batters can find ways to score, so maybe we can accomplish those things when the game begins tomorrow.
