India will be missing the services of Shubman Gill in the test series against England and this will be an opportunity to try out new opening combinations. Shubman Gill was recently ruled out due to an injury and no replacement has been named for the Indian opener.
However, enough opening batters are waiting in the wings with the squad and this will be the best time to try out those players at the top of the order. Batting in England is one of the toughest things and if the opener does make it through this series, he will certainly be looked like a future prospect. Here are 4 opening combinations India could try in the England Test series.
4 Opening Combinations India Could Try In The England Test Series:
Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal:
Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal have shared a lot of great partnerships in the limited time they have opened together and they started off with a monumental 317 run partnership against India in the first-ever match they opened together.
Rohit looks like a certainty at the top of the order and he opened in the World Test Championship too. Mayank Agarwal on the other hand hasn’t done much wrong to be left out and he will be looking to make a strong comeback in the England series. This will be the first choice opening combination for the England series.
