Middle-order

Virat Kohli will look to get some runs under his belt

The batsmen featuring in the middle order will depend on the team combination that the management wants to go with. With the wicket expected to assist the spinners, it won’t be a bad idea to go in with an extra batsman instead of an extra bowler. 

If Virat Kohli goes in with five bowlers, one bowler might go underused and at the same time, having an extra batsman will give the team more edge in the batting department. If the team management chooses the 7-4 combination, then all the batsmen who played in the middle order in the second Test will be retained as India don’t have the luxury of an extra batsman in the squad.

This will be the perfect opportunity for Karun Nair to seal his spot in the Test XI. Skipper Virat Kohli and wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha will look to score some runs in the Test after having a silent series with the bat.
