Team India is set to clash against New Zealand in the second and final test of the two test match series.
Virat Kohli is coming back in the role of the skipper from the second Test after a brief break. His presence will not only boost team’s strength but also the morale.
The first test ended in a draw but Team India had a great control and Indian spinners almost bowled Kiwis out.
With Virat coming back and Saha’s injury there are a few possible changes in the Indian playing XI before the second match.
Three Possible Changes
Team India will be coming in the second match with Virat Kohli as the skipper that means one of the player will surely leave the playing XI.
Wriddhiman Saha’s injury is not said to be serious but his presence in the second match is still a question. With still no confirmation, there is a possibility that Team India decides to give Saha a little rest.
Shreyas Iyer’s spectacular performance in his debut will make it hard for the team to drop him right in the next match.
Ajinkya Rahane and Pujara still got experience and Team India still backing them will make it hard to replace them.
The following are the possible changes:
1) Mohammed Siraj can come in place of Ishant Sharma and Prasidh Krishna can make his test debut by replacing Umesh Yadav.
2) Srikar Bharat can make his debut by replacing Wriddhiman Saha, if the management declares him unclear to play.
3) Surya Kumar Yadav can make his most awaited Test debut by replacing Mayank Aggarwal in the upcoming test. Mayank failed to score in both the Innings and management can give him rest for a match or two.
This can be the most possible changes in the playing X1 of team India for the Mumbai Test.
