In the first Test match of the Border-Gavaskar series, the Indian team had lost to Australia by 8 wickets. Due to the disappointing performance of the batsmen, Team India could only manage 36 runs after losing 9 wickets in the second innings. This was India’s lowest ever score in an innings of Test cricket. The second Test of the series will be played in Melbourne, where the Indian team will take the field with the intention of making a comeback. However, after the absence of Virat Kohli and the exit of Mohammed Shami, this task is going to be very difficult for Team India. Meanwhile, former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has advised KL Rahul to get the opening in place of Prithvi Shaw in the Boxing-Day Test match.

Team India needs to believe that it can make a comeback in this Test series right now. If India does not remain positive, the result of the series could be 4–0. But, if he stays positive, why can’t he come back? can do. Anger is natural after such a poor performance, but anything can happen in cricket. See what was the scene on the second day and what happened on the third day of the match.
Gavaskar spoke about the change in India’s team in the Boxing-Day Test match, saying, ‘India should look towards two changes. First of all, KL Rahul should replace Prithvi Shaw as an opener and Shubman Gill at number five or six. His form is quite good. Things can change if we start well. ‘
