India VS England Test Match: Rajat Patidar Will Play In Place Of Virat Kohli In The Team, Kohli Dropped Due To Personal Reasons

Rajat Patidar has been called up as replacement for the unavailable Virat Kohli for the first two Tests of the five-match series against England. Rajat Patidar was included in the team as a replacement for Virat and it was exactly like Prasidh Krishna was included in the team as his replacement after Hardik’s injury in the World Cup. A replacement is someone who can replace the original player and be included in the playing XI but currently the coach and captain of the Indian team are working on a different formula. Replacement is done but as a replacement, such a player is selected who is neither able to be part of the playing XI nor is eligible to become.

Virat Kohli Took Leave From Two Test Matches

When you ignore talent and keep recommended players in the team, the result will be the same as in the first Test match against England. You know that there is neither Pujara nor Rahane in your team and Virat Kohli had completed the right thing by taking a break from two Test matches, in such a situation, should the captain and coach not think that in the absence of Virat in the middle order, an experienced player should be included in the team in his place?

Virat Kohli Took Leave From Two Test Matches

Imagine Hardik’s replacement in the World Cup could have been Prasidh Krishna? Could Rajat Patidar have been Virat’s replacement? The answer to both of these questions is absolutely no. Some people may say that Rajat Patidar is young and a good batsman, so it is the right decision to become Virat’s replacement, but the question from him is whether a senior player’s replacement can be young? Were players with the same experience that Virat has not existed in India? In fact, Virat’s replacement could have been Cheteshwar Pujara because Pujara is experienced.

If Cheteshwar Pujara was picked as Virat’s replacement, the matter would have again been stuck that one of his favourite Gill or Iyer would have to be dropped. In such a situation, it does not even seem right to sit Pujara out. This is the reason that Rajat Patidar was selected in the team as Virat’s replacement. The management and coach insist that we may lose but we will not sit Gill and Iyer out. If Pujara had come as Virat’s replacement, he would have been playing the first Test and India would not have fallen  28  runs short of the target of 230 runs.
