Most of the experts and spectators remind Virat Kohli, Cheteswar Pujara, and Shikhar Dhawan when talking about Indian batsmen but there are many dark knights for the team who could guide India towards victory at the need of the hour. Here are some of the players other than the hyped ones who could win the test series for India.
- Murali Vijay
He slammed a lightning century against Afghanistan in the one-off test match and made a patient fifty for India in the game against Essex. He will be the first choice of the management to play as an opener in the first test match against England at Edgbaston on 1st August 2018. He is in a very good form and expects to slam 4000 runs in his test cricket career.
- Ajinkya Rahane
He is one of the unsung heroes for Indian team and led the test team for the one-off test against Afghanistan. He is known for a few match-winning innings at an average of 43.17. He is one of the consistent tail-enders for the team and is awaiting his completion of 3000 test runs.
- Umesh Yadav
He is one of the bowling spearheads who performs consistently to pick wickets at the need of the hour. He is the nightmare for many of the left-handers and picked a decent number of wickets in IPL 2018 and limited overs series against England. He is in the best of his form with the bowling average in the test format, 34.94.
- Dinesh Karthik
He is the hero of Nidahas tournament for his last-ball six. He made a comeback as the wicket-keeper for the test team and improved his batting skills under the guidance of Abhishek Nayyar. He made 82 runs in the game against Essex and looking forward to making a few cameos in the test series against England.
