‘KL Rahul should replace Prithvi Shaw as an opener’ – Sunil Gavaskar ahead of India’s second Test against Australia
Former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar reckons that KL Rahul should be picked as Mayank Agarwal’s opening partner for the second Test against Australia, starting December 26 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Gavaskar feels that Shaw, who managed four runs in the Day-Night Adelaide Test, shouldn’t be included for the all-important MCG Test.
“Firstly, maybe KL Rahul should replace Prithvi Shaw as an opener. At No. 5 or No. 6, Shubman Gill should come in. His form has been good. Things can change if we start well,” Gavaskar was quoted as saying on YouTube channel ‘Sports Tak’.
