Wasim Jaffer says that if Shubman Gill is ruled out of the five-match Test series against England due to injury, then Mayank Agarwal should be included in his place.
Wasim Jaffer said, "This is a big opportunity for Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul. However, Mayank will be my first choice. His career has been great so far. Mayank was dropped after two bad innings in Australia, but I am sure he will look forward to this opportunity."
Jaffer, who played 31 Tests for India, said, "This is a big series of five matches which can make or break the career of cricketers. I think Rahul can also fit in the middle order."
Shubman had failed to perform well in the final of the World Test Championship. He scored 28 and eight runs in the title match. At the same time, he could not perform as expected in the four-match home Test series against England.
Shubman was questioned for his disappointing performance in the WTC final and former selector Gagan Khoda said that Shubman should go down the middle order instead of opening.
