India played a warm-up game in the lead-up to the rescheduled 5th Test against England but that match against Leicestershire turned out to be an intra-squad game. Could India have been a bit more competitive? Should India have played a proper first-class match?
And what about the opening combination? In Rohit Sharma’s absence, should India look to give Kona Bharat a chance at the top alongside Shubman Gill or will Mayank Agarwal get an opportunity after being flown in from India? There are plenty of questions to ponder for the Indian team management ahead of the crucial Test match.
A lot of these questions are addressed in the third episode of Sledging Room. And as is now the norm, the debate wasn’t always polite. India Today.in’s sports team, Saurabh Srivastava and Akshay Ramesh join in.
