Team India captain, Virat Kohli clarified the situation, saying that the XI will be revealed on the day of the match. As first-choice openings are already out of competition owing to injury considerations, it would be interesting to watch who will take the pads alongside Rohit Sharma. Everything Will Come Back Down To How Effectively Team India Will Execute

Mayank Agarwal sustained a concussion before the opening game and will sit sideline in that same match, whereas Shubman Gill was termed out earlier due to a stress injury.

“We will announce the XI before we go for the toss, so you can know who is opening with Rohit. We are absolutely fine and happy with where we are placed,” said Kohli in a virtual press conference on Tuesday.

In terms of this high-profile series India and England, it needs to be seen if the visitors will be able to transform the bases. The very last time they played on English soil was in 2007 when great batsman Rahul Dravid smacked England’s bowlers. In the previous 14 years, India has failed to win a series in England, and their ability to handle the ball will be tested once more in front of the English quicks.

Kohli, on the other hand, believes they are in a better position than they have been in the past, but everything will come back down to how effectively they execute. Trent Bridge, India’s finest profitable venue from over years, will host the opening game. Virat Kohli led the way with the batting in India’s lone success on their most recent visit to England.
