Gautam Gambhir demanded to give chance to Vihari in place of Rahane

India-South Africa Former cricketer Gautam Gambhir has made a big prediction between the second Test match being played between (IND vs SA). Africa need 122 runs to win in Johannesburg. So on the other hand, Team India needs full 8 wickets to win. Ajinkya Rahane scored a half-century on the third day of this match. In the absence of Virat Kohli, the responsibility of captaincy rests on the shoulders of KL Rahul. In such a situation, after the return of the captain, Gautam Gambhir also tells you about which player has asked to be dropped from the team.

Gambhir wants to give chance to this batsman instead of Rahane

In the second innings of the second Test match, Rahane got the most runs (58) with the bat. Apart from this, Pujara scored a half-century (53). At the same time, Shardul Thakur and Vihari also played a good innings. But, now the question is arising regarding the third test match that if Kohli returns after recovering, then which player will be cut from the last eleven. Talking about this during the commentary, Gautam Gambhir said,

Hanuma Vihari did well in both the innings. Ajinkya Rahane may have scored a half-century but, he has got a lot of opportunities. Talking further, the former cricketer also said that Hanuma Vihari plays only one format. He also did well against Australia. You also have to think ahead.

Number-3 should be given to Pujara- Former cricketer

Actually, Vihari scored an unbeaten 40 in the second innings of the Johannesburg Test match. The team lost 8 wickets for 228 runs. During this, he played some big shots and took the team’s score to 266 runs. He also contributed 20 runs in the first innings. There was a lot of discussion about this innings of his, especially during the commentary, Gautam Gambhir while talking said that the place of number-3 is the place of specialist.

In such a situation, according to me, Cheteshwar Pujara should be given a chance. Cheteshwar Pujara’s bat has not scored a century for the last two years. But, in Johannesburg, he also played an innings of 53 runs and also had a century partnership for the third wicket with Rahane. At present, it will not be easy for the management to choose which player will be dropped after the return of Virat Kohli.
