IND vs AUS: Only 3 days are left in the beginning of the Test series to be played between India and Australia. The first match of the Border Gavaskar Trophy will be played from 9 February. In Team India, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma have been the first choice of management as openers for some time now. But former Team India spinner Harbhajan Singh has given a big statement regarding the Indian opening pair.

Harbhajan Singh gave a big statement

Talking on the Indian opening pair on his YouTube channel, Harbhajan Singh said, 'The opening partnership is the most important. Only openers set any match. According to me, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill should open against Australia. Gill's form is at a different level right now. KL Rahul is a top class player. But after the year 2022, he is not a favorite. Gill has broken many records recently. If Team India has to win this Test series, then Shubman Gill should open with Rohit Sharma.

Shubman Gill in fine form

Shubman Gill's bat is going on fiercely this year. He has also scored a double century in ODIs. At the same time, he also scored a century in T20 against New Zealand recently. Shubman Gill has played 13 Test matches for Team India so far. In these matches, Shubman Gill has scored 736 runs at an average of 32.0. During this, 4 half-centuries and 1 century have been seen from his bat.

Gill can also get a place in this place

Team India's batsman Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the first match of the four-Test series against Australia due to a back injury. In such a situation, Shubman Gill can get preference in the middle order. Gill has opened the innings for most of the team in Test cricket, but this time he can be seen batting in the middle order as well.
