Shubman Gill Will In Team India Against Sri Lanka: Major reshuffle is expected in the Indian team. Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane, who are struggling with form, may be out of the Test team. If both these players are out of Team India, then Punjab’s talented batsman Shubman Gill can get a place. This change is likely to happen in the team after India’s 1-2 loss to South Africa.

India’s next test series will be against Sri Lanka. It will start in Bengaluru from February 25 and there will be a chance for the players to make it to at least two places in the middle order. Rohit Sharma is expected to be fit for this Test series and he can handle the responsibility of opening the innings along with Lokesh Rahul.

Gill has played mostly as an opener but once he recovers from injury and makes himself available, it is expected that the team management and selectors will pick him up as a specialist middle-order batsman.

Pujara and Rahane are certain to be dropped from the national team. They can save their place only if coach Rahul Dravid tells the selection committee to give a last chance to both the out-of-form batsmen. But if it happens then it will surely disappoint all the contending youths who might be feeling desperate due to not being given the opportunity at the right time in their career.

Sunil Gavaskar, while commentating in the India-South Africa series, said, “I think Pujara and Rahane will be dropped from the team for Sri Lanka. Both Shreyas Iyer and Hanuma Vihari will play.

He said, “We will see who plays at number three. Hanuma Vihari can replace Pujara and Shreyas Iyer can replace Rahane at number five, but we will have to see. However, I think two places will definitely be vacant in the series against Sri Lanka.

The Indian team will need such batsmen in the middle order who can bat freely and can collect a lot of runs in a session. Gill is better in this if seen in skill, technique and passion. If Gill plays at number five, he can take advantage of the situation when the ball gets old.
