Struggling to stay alive in the five test series after humiliated defeat in the first two tests, team India might make some changes for the third test which begins Saturday at Trent Bridge. Going by the practice session it seems Rishab Pant may make his Test debut.
Karthik has scored 0,20,1,0 in four innings, which is not good figures for a batsman. Karthik might not play the game as he was injured during the third test while trying to collect a wide delivery from Hardik Pandya. So, Rishabh Pant might be in the line for his Test debut as he was seen during a practice session with Kartik.
During a practice session in England, Pant was seen batting after all the batsman finished their rounds. Does this mean Rishabh Pant, who gained prominence in limited over version, is set to make his test debut?
No doubt, it was a bold call on part of the team management ad selectors to pick Pant in the Test squad. When Ravi Shastri was aksed if India would give a chance to Rishab Pant in the third test, he said, "About Rishabh, you will know 11am day after,".
So now we have to wait and watch if Rishabh Pant will make his test debut or not.
