India is scheduled to play its first Test match against West Indies from July 12. India have a total of 10 matches to play in this West Indies tour, two of which will be Tests. But while selecting the playing eleven for the test match, the team management is going to have a big problem this time.
The first Test match between India and West Indies (West Indies Vs India 1st Test) will be played from July 12 in Dominica. A new question has arisen as to which batsman will open for India along with Rohit Sharma in this match. The pair of Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma are certain as openers. Both of them have played the role of opener for India since long ago. However, this series may change at this point.
India are yet to get a left-arm opener after Shikhar Dhawan was dropped from the Test squad. Left-armer Yashasvi Jaiswal has been a part of the Indian team in this series and can be seen as an opener for the future. Gill has yet to find much success outside India as a Test opener. Yashasvi can get a chance with Rohit as a left-right pair. As Cheteshwar Pujara’s seat is vacant at number three, Gill can claim that spot. After that, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane will make the Indian batting strong.
India’s Probable Playing XI for First Test against West Indies –
Rohit Sharma, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli, Ishan Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Ravichandran Ashwin, Navdeep Saini, Mohammad Siraj
