IND vs ENG 5th Test Playing 11: Who will be Pujara or Mayank Gill’s partner, know what will be India’s playing-11


The Indian team has to play a Test match in the tour of England, but it is proving difficult to choose the right team for this match. Team captain Rohit Sharma has been out of the team after getting infected with Corona and the command of the team is in the hands of Jasprit Bumrah. The balance of the team has also been disturbed due to Rohit’s exit. Now the biggest challenge before coach Dravid and captain Bumrah will be about choosing the opening pair. At the same time, it will also be difficult to choose between Jadeja or Ashwin in the spin bowler.

Before the match, Dravid had indicated that Cheteshwar Pujara could get the innings started. At the same time, Mayank Agarwal has also been called to England and he is also with the team. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see with which 11 players India enters the field.

Opening pair big challenge

The importance of the opening pair increases in difficult conditions in England. The reason for India’s leading in the first four matches of this series was the opening pair. Rohit and Rahul together had a great start in every match and both were the highest run scorers for India. Both are not batsmen in this series. In such a situation, Gill is sure to get a chance, but instead of giving a chance to Mayank Agarwal, coach Dravid can start the innings with Pujara. Pujara has played as an opener in the past and has been successful too.

Hanuma Vihari can play at number three when Pujara opens the innings. It is decided to play Virat at number four and Pant at number five. Shreyas Iyer can play at number six and Jadeja or Ashwin can play at number seven. Apart from Shardul, Team India will enter the field with three leading fast bowlers.

Who will be the spin bowler?

Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja will be competing for a spot as the spin all-rounder. If coach Dravid and captain Bumrah put more emphasis on bowling, then Ashwin can get a Maca. Ashwin is a world class bowler and he can prove to be effective on any pitch with his variations. At the same time, Jadeja has done better with the bat and can be given a chance to strengthen the batting. However, the Edgbaston pitch will not help any spin bowler. In such a situation, the chances of Jadeja getting a chance are high.

Who will be the fast bowler?

In this match, India would like to go with four fast bowling options. Shardul Thakur will play as a fast bowling all-rounder. At the same time, apart from captain Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Mohammad Siraj will be the other two fast bowlers. The coach and captain also have the option of the famous Krishna and Umesh Yadav, but these two players are less likely to get a chance.

England has already announced the team

The team of 11 players has already been announced from England side. Fast bowler James Anderson has returned to the team. Apart from this, no significant changes have been made. Wicketkeeper Ben Focus has been out of the team due to Corona and his Sam Billings has been included in the team.

England team

Alex Lees, Jack Crowley, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes (c), Sam Billings (wk), Matthew Potts, Stuart Broad, Jack Leach, James Anderson.

India’s probable team

Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Hanuma Vihari, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (Vice-Captain), Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah (C), Mohammad Siraj.
