Dinesh Karthik explains the right resource between Shubman vs KL Rahul for WTC India Squad

The current 4th Test between India and Australia will be remembered as fans witnessed a century of Virat Kohli. This century has come after a long spell of more than years in the Test format. The former India captain batted 186 on Day 4 to lead Team India to 571 overall with the hosts leading on 91 runs. Alongside Kohli, it was youngster Shubman Gill who also scored his second test ton on Day 3 and gave India a brilliant start. With this century, Gill lived up to the expectations of fans and voters as he carved his way into the team after replacing an out-of-form KL Rahul.

be used as a good backup option behind the stumps. “I’ll see how Rahul feels because KL isn’t someone who likes to play cricket in Test because it’s a completely different ballgame. But I’ll keep that in mind. It’s an option that’s very, very viable when KL is ready for ground maintenance,” Karthik said. Karthik then praised Gill for his incredible pitch and stated that he definitely wants to see the 23-year-old batsman in the Playing XI for the WTC Finals.

“I will select Shubman Gill, undoubtedly. The man got the hundreds in the last test before the WTC final. There’s a feeling that Shubman Gill is going for the long haul. He is a long racehorse. He’s the one you want to invest your money in and say, ‘I want it to still open to India in 2033,’ added Karthik. Virat Kohli had 186 points to start the game as India finished their first innings with 571 points in Sunday’s fourth and final Test against Australia in Ahmedabad.
