Mumbai, November 22: The Indian cricket team is currently on a tour of Australia. The ODI series will start on November 27. India captain Virat Kohli will play three ODIs, three T20Is and one Test in the tour. Virat will return to India without playing the remaining three matches of the Test series. Virat’s wife Anushka Sharma will leave the tour of Australia halfway as she is about to give birth. So, after Virat’s departure, discussions have started about who is the alternative for Team India.
Former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh has also expressed his views in this regard. KL Rahul could be a substitute for Virat Kohli for the remaining three Tests. Harbhajan has said that it would be appropriate to replace Rahul Virat at number four.
‘I’m not going to change the opening pair. Rohit Sharma should start the innings in Australia. Rahul can replace Kohli. Rahul is the third, fourth and best option for the opening, ‘Harbhajan told India Today.
‘The pink ball moves a lot at first, but once the seam is set, it is easier to bat. India’s bowlers will be eager to bowl with the pink ball, as India’s bowling attack is good. Mohammad Shami, Jaspreet Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and other bowlers can hurt Australia, ‘said Harbhajan.
