Shubman Gill was preferred as a constant choice but Mayank Agarwal was neglected over Hanuma Vihari and Shreyas Iyer because of which Cheteshwar Pujara has to open the innings with Shubman Gill.
Shubman Gill has been in talks about being one of the amazing opening batsman for team India, specially when the blues have to tour to the dominating teams of England, Australia, South Africa.
James Anderson and Stuart Broad have started the pace attack with the field setup being closed-in with 4 slip fielders and 3 short fielders from the leg side.
Shubman Gill’s highest score was 91 runs and he played a critical role against the Aussies to bring the Gabba win for the Border-Gavaskar trophy.
With this final test left to conclude, can opener Shubman Gill find his maiden Test hundred against the home side Englishmen.
The only Test left to play in Birmingham is live and in action as Ben Stokes, skipper of team England won the toss to allow the visitors to bat first.
Team England will start by bowling first and the decision seems tactical enough to catch the attention that team India has not experienced a good time South Africa Test series and the abroad conditions have been not played much past these months and the home side will be looking to take advantage to it.
Team India leads the ongoing series since 2021, with 2-1 and the home side has a potential opportunity to equal the series and snatch away the historical win for the Asian side as well as Bumrah’s maiden win as a captain.
