After poor performance in both test match, this is time for make change in indian openers slot. Both indian openers Murli vijay and Kl Rahul failed to score runs. indian openers failure continued throughout year. Murli vijay comeback after West indies series but Vijay fails in scoring runs. Kl Rahul just loose his temperament. He need to come india and have to play for Karnataka in Ranji Tropy. Rahul just gets his enough chance for fixing his place in team. In current year Rahul failed in almost all matches. He not able face fast bowling attack.Which is not good for any opener. this applied same Murli vijay.
Indian openers for 3rd Test :
Indian team management have to try new player for opening slot. For Boxing day test Myank agarwal and Rohit Sharma will be good option. If there is having fitness problem with Rohit sharma then Partiv Patel is also good option.
Myank Agarwal scored too much runs in Ranji tropy. Myank agarwal scored runs with average of almost 50. Which is good sign for opining batsman. He scored 1000 runs in Ranji Tropy last year. In current year he scored good runs. Myank Agarwal is in form of his like. Indian team management cannot ignore these player who is scoring runs continuously.
Rohit sharma is good choice for opening slot. He can bat bouncy wicket. Rohit can pull sort which is good for batting on bouncy wicket. In Melbourne cricket ground there is no any seam movement, which is good for Rohit sharma. In ODI opening slot chance carrier for rohit sharma. so this is time for team management for give chance to Rohit sharma.
But if Rohit sharma have fitness problem then Partiv patel is also option. He can plays as wicketkeeper batsman and give position of Rishab Pant to Hardik Pandya. This gives good balance to team. Rishab pant also shows bad form in both test match.
