IND vs SA Ready to Replace Rohit Sharma Special Preparations Going on For That Player

IND vs SA: Rohit Sharma is not part of the 3-Test series against South Africa due to injury. In his place, Mayank Agarwal opened the innings in the Centurion Test.

South Africa got a big setback before the match

South Africa has suffered a major setback before the opening match of the series. Their main bowler Enrique Norcia has been ruled out due to injury. Kagiso Rabada will lead the bowling attack along with Duane Oliver. He returned to play for South Africa after the end of the Kolpak deal with Britain. Lungi Ngidi will also be on the team. Elgar hopes. That the weather will clear before the opening Test of the series and the pitch will help the fast bowlers.

India and South Africa will play the first match of the test series from 26 December

The first match of the Test series will be played between India and South Africa from 26 December at Centurion. Team India’s eye will be on starting with victory. However, due to the injury of Rohit Sharma before this series, the trouble of Team India has increased. Rohit is not a part of this test series. In his absence, Mayank Agarwal will open the innings. He knows that he has a big responsibility as an opener. That is why he does not want to leave any stone unturned to give India its first series win in South Africa.

Mayank scored against D.Africa at an average of 85

By the way, Mayank has a good record against South Africa. He has so far scored 340 runs in 3 Tests against this country at an average of 85. It also includes a double century, which he scored against South Africa in Visakhapatnam. However, Mayank does not have the experience of playing on the bouncy pitches of South Africa. This is his first visit. In such a situation, it will not be easy for him to score runs in South Africa. Mayank also averages 50 as an opener. He has scored 1247 runs in 25 innings of Test.

Will Mayank Agarwal get a chance to do the captaincy?

There is always some moisture in South African wickets. Especially in the highveld areas (altitude area). I don’t see much change from the last series. As a batsman, if you are disciplined and show your skills, you can score runs in Centurion.” Asked about the team’s inexperience in the batting order, he said, “Professional cricket can be an opportunity for you. It’s about cashing in. If you don’t do this, another player is ready to take the place. But it is always difficult to play against the best team in the world. They have a very strong bowling attack and we are aware of that.”

All three batsmen looked upset

Here, Deepak Chahar also opened his hands in bowling. He has added to the team as a standby player. But he was also seen practicing in the practice session of the team. He was seen bowling to Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, and KL Rahul. During the practice, these three batsmen looked upset due to Chahar’s swing bowling.
