India's senior off-spinner Harbhajan Singh believes that Shubman Gill, who recently performed brilliantly for India A, is set to make his Test debut. Shubman & nbsp; scored 83 and an unbeaten 204 in the first A Test match. After this he scored a century in the second match. Prithvi Shaw is also a contender for selection in the playing XI, who returned to the Test team after 16 months.
Shubhman is scoring in New Zealand
Harbhajan said - Shubman should get a chance as he has been in the team for a long time as a reserve opener. With Rohit Sharma injured and KL Rahul not being selected, India could open the innings to Mayank Agarwal in the Test team. Aggarwal, however, failed in the A Test and all three ODIs.
Harbhajan said that Mayank has a good record in Test cricket. He understands the game very well. He cannot be ruled out due to three ODIs and a practice match. Does not happen like this. He said that he has scored all the time. I believe Mayank and Shubman should play the first Test.
Dasgupta said - Prithvi should be in the playing eleven
Former India wicketkeeper Deep Dasgupta believes that Prithvi should be in the playing XI. He said that I believe Shubman is in excellent form but Prithvi made his debut in Test cricket even before Mayank. He performed well and was the first choice before being injured. He said that Prithvi deserves a return to the team. Shubman will have to wait.
