The India vs Australia series has been a closely contested one, with both teams giving their all in the three Tests so far. The third Test is set to begin in Sydney on January 7th, and it could be the perfect time for India to make a change in their batting lineup.
KL Rahul has been India’s opener in the series so far, but his form has been inconsistent. He has scored just one fifty in the series, and his average of 24.50 is far below what is expected of an opener.
Shubman Gill, on the other hand, has been in excellent form in the domestic circuit. He has scored heavily in the Ranji Trophy and the Duleep Trophy, and he has been one of the most consistent performers in the Indian Premier League.
Gill has the technique and temperament to succeed at the highest level, and he could be the perfect replacement for Rahul as India’s opener. He has the ability to play long innings, and he could provide the stability that India’s batting lineup needs.
The third Test is the perfect opportunity for India to make the change. Gill has the potential to be a long-term solution for India’s opening woes, and he could be the difference between a win and a loss for India in the series.
It is time for India to take a chance on Shubman Gill, and give him the opportunity to prove himself at the highest level. It could be the start of a new era for Indian cricket.
