Shubman Gill vs KL Rahul IND vs AUS Indore Test: The second day of the Test being played between India and Australia in Indore is going on and the match has reached a very interesting phase. Team India performed very poorly in the first innings, after that Australia’s batsmen batted well, thanks to Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin and Umesh Yadav, who did not allow Australia to score more runs, otherwise once upon a time Team India Was on the backfoot. The Indian bowlers took six of Australia’s wickets in just 11 runs in the second hour on the second day, so Australia’s lead could not be extended. However, even after this, the Australian team managed to take a lead of 88 runs. When batsmen are craving for single runs, then 88 runs is a lot. After this, when Team India came out to bat for the second time, the start was bad again. Both the openers of the team got out and returned to the pavilion. Especially Shubman Gill got a chance after two matches, but Gill did the work of killing it.
Shubman Gill has replaced KL Rahul in the third match
Shubman Gill did not get a chance in the first two Tests against Australia. KL Rahul played in the matches played in Nagpur and Delhi, but did not get much out of his bat. After this a lot of talk happened on social media. It was said that KL Rahul is out of form, while Shubman Gill is scoring runs, so he is not getting a chance. After this somehow, in the third match being played in Indore, there is an entry of Shubman Gill and KL Rahul has to sit out of the playing XI. Now just know about Shubman’s two innings. Shubman Gill scored 21 off 18 balls in the first innings of the match, which included three fours. After this, only five runs came from his bat in the second innings and for this he played 15 balls. That means 26 runs in total in the match. It is true that when no batsman from either team India and Australia was able to score runs then it is meaningless to expect a good innings from Shubman Gill. But it also has to be remembered that Usman Khawaja of Australia scored 60 and Marnus Labuschagne scored 31 runs on this pitch. It is also noteworthy that if Shubman Gill had scored big in a single innings of this match, he would have been applauded, but he did not succeed in doing so.
Shubman Gill and KL Rahul
Who will get a chance in the fourth test between Shubman Gill and KL Rahul
Now let’s look at the figures of KL Rahul as well, because the competition is only between Shubman Gill and KL Rahul. KL Rahul scored 20 runs off 71 balls in the first innings of the first match played in Nagpur and after that did not bat in the second innings. In the first innings of the second match, 17 runs came from his bat and in the second innings, he returned to the pavilion after scoring one run. That is, overall, there is not much difference between the figures of Shubman Gill and KL Rahul. But the question is which of these two will get a place in the playing XI in the fourth Test. The third match will be played in Ahmedabad, which will be very important. Meanwhile, captain Rohit Sharma, coach Rahul Dravid and the rest of the team management will definitely consider who should be given a chance before the fourth Test. Although it should be considered that the way KL Rahul got two matches, in the same way Shubman Gill should also be given two matches. It has to be seen what is the decision in the end, but for the time being the eye is on where the third match of the series goes.
