Virat kohli drop rahul and vijay for next test.Vihari and Mayank as openers for the Boxing Day Test

Virat Kohli and co. must start thinking responsibly for the third Test against Australia. The Boxing Day Test accept tremendous centrality for the two groups, however particularly so for the visiting side, as another foul up here could expedite draperies the rarest of uncommon opportunities to win an arrangement down under.

The primary thing that Team India must get right is its group choice. Also, the most serious issue in the group lies at the simple best. India's two openers in the initial two Tests have performed horrifyingly. Rahul and Vijay have scored 48 and 49 keeps running in the four innings they have played, up until this point.

Their shoddy expulsions have put huge weight on India's center request. The opening misfortunes alongside the truth of a longish tail has implied that the heft of India's batting must be finished by the center request.

In spite of the fact that the center request has done sensibly well in the arrangement, the general batting execution has endured because of the fragile opening pair and a tail that can't sway.

As indicated by numerous specialists, Rahul is sure to be avoided and Vijay could hold his place in the group on account of the battle he appeared in the second innings at Perth. In any case, the truth is he dealt with a sum of only 20 keeps running in the second Test, and got out to a free shot against Nathan Lyon.

In this way, there is no motivation behind why both of the two openers ought to be held on with for the third Test, after disappointments in four progressive innings. Mayank Agarwal is the save opener and he ought to be a shoe in to open the innings at Melbourne. With respect to his accomplice, India ought to consider allowing that chance to Hanuma Vihari.

In spite of the fact that Vihari is a center request batsman, he has a strong procedure, reasonable against both pace and turn. He has a sound head on his shoulders, as was sufficiently exhibited in the Perth Test. Previous Indian cricketer and expert Sanjay Manjrekar too has upheld the possibility of Vihari as a conceivable answer for India's opening misfortunes.

In the event that both of Vijay and Rahul inspires a chance to accomplice Mayank, there is each possibility of Vihari passing up a great opportunity from the playing Xi all-together, as Hardik Pandya appears to be sure to take up the all-rounder's space in the group. By having both Pandya and Vihari in the playing XI, the Indian group gets two additional knocking down some pins choices too.

Everything considered, Kohli and co. must give a genuine thought to opening with Vihari and Mayank at Melbourne.
