Hanuma Vihari Team India Virat Rohit Pujara Cricket News Indian Cricket IND Vs SL BCCI Rohit Sharma Ind vs SL | Team India’s longest search is over, this player will become the new number 3 batsman in Test!

new Delhi: A two match test series is to be played between India and Sri Lanka. The first match of the series will be played from March 4 at the PCA Stadium in Mohali. In this series, Team India will go on the field without big players like Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Ishant Sharma. After a long time, a new batting order will be seen in the Indian Test. Due to the absence of Pujara in the team at this time in front of Team India, who will bat at number three remains a big question.

How to find batsman at number three

The Indian team management is currently looking for replacement of Cheteshwar Pujara at number one. There are many contenders in the team, but at number three, the team is looking for a batsman who can become the wall of the team in batting. Batting at number three in the Test team is an act of patience. In this position, the batsman has to face the new ball, which is considered the most difficult in the red ball. Till now Pujara had been doing this work in Team India. Before Pujara, the number three position was held by Rahul Dravid for a long time. Rahul Dravid has played 136 matches for India in Tests at number three. At the same time, Pujara has played 89 matches for India at number three.

This player is the contender for number three in the team

Many players have placed their bets for number three, but in the eyes of the team management, there is also a batsman who can mold himself in every position for the team. We are talking about Hanuma Vihari. Vihari has played only 13 matches for the Indian team so far. The competition is less but the ability to play at number three is enough. Vihari has won many matches for India on many occasions. In such a situation, many veteran players are in favor of giving Vihari a chance in the team. Vihari has scored 684 runs in 13 matches at an average of 34.20 for India. Hanuma Vihari has also scored a century in his Test career so far.

India eyeing clean sweep

The Indian team will go on the field under the leadership of Rohit Sharma with the intention of cleaning this series as well. Under Rohit’s captaincy, Team India has made a clean sweep of New Zealand, West Indies and Sri Lanka team in T20 matches. Now his eyes will be on winning the Test series. Rohit Sharma will be seen captaining for the first time in Test matches. India has won 7 out of 10 Tests played at the Mohali ground, while three other matches have been drawn. Since 2000, the Indian team has not lost a single match at this ground. In such a situation, even in this match, the edge of India is going to be heavy.

Indian Test Team Squad:

Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Priyank Panchal, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant, KS Bharat, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Jayant Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Mohammad Siraj, Jasprit Bumrah (Vice Captain), Umesh Yadav and Saurabh Kumar.
