Team India: The Indian cricket team is ready to face England in the last match of the 5-match Test series against England from July 1. Team India is ahead 2-1 in this series and captain Rohit Sharma’s eyes will be on winning the series by winning the last match. But Rohit will miss one of his deadly players in this match.
Rohit will miss this player
Team India took a 2-1 lead in the series last year. During that time openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma took over the responsibility of opening. Rohit Sharma was India’s highest run-scorer with 368 runs in 4 matches, while Rahul scored 315 runs. But this time Rohit has reached England with the responsibility of captaincy on his shoulders. At the same time, Rahul is out of Edgbaston Test due to injury. The lack of Rahul, who did wonders in the series last time, will definitely be missed by captain Rohit.
Series not won after 2007
Team India is trying to win the Test series in England for the first time since 2007. Former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar believes batting will be a big challenge for the guests at Edgbaston and Rahul’s absence is a big setback for India. “It was a brilliant effort at the top from KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma, which played a key role in helping India take a 2-1 lead. This time it is a big setback for India due to the absence of KL Rahul.
This player can do amazing
In a virtual interaction organized by Sony Sports, Manjrekar said, “India can make up for Rahul, but when you look at India’s seam bowling, there are quality options to choose from besides the two spinners.” It will be a big challenge to bat like last time. According to Manjrekar’s views, early dismissals of the top six batsmen on the first day of their four-day warm-up match against Leicestershire could cause some concern in the Indian camp.
