ndia vs Australia: India’s predicted XI for Perth Test; change expected

The captain praised the efforts of the bowlers and also asked his batsmen to step up and give a better account of themselves in the upcoming Test matches.

Virat Kohli, who keeps tinkering with his playing combinations, could well change the playing XI at Perth.

Here we try to predict the playing XI India would play in the second Test match.

KL Rahul

After a shocking stroke in the first innings, KL Rahul looked far more settled in the second dig and despite the fact that he got out looking to play an expansive stroke, he gave a glimpse of getting back his form.

Perth, which will have pace and bounce, could suit Rahul’s style of play and presents him with a great opportunity to seal his spot.

Murali Vijay

With news coming in that Prithvi Shaw is still not a 100 per cent match fit, Vijay looks set to get another go at the top of the order on what is expected to be a green top in Perth. One of India’s best batsman on the away tours of 2014-15, the Tamil Nadu opener has struggled to get going outside India this year. The Perth Test could just be his last opportunity to keep his Test place.

Cheteshwar Pujara

“We were down and out at lunch on day one. His belief, grit and determination kept us in the game, he brought us back beautifully,” Kohli said after the match.

Cheteshwar Pujara, who walked away with the man of the match in Adelaide, was the difference between the sides and his form augurs brilliantly for India in the upcoming matches.

Virat Kohli

The Indian captain did not set the stage on fire in Adelaide, but after a flashy stroke in the first innings, he dug in the second essay and played a crucial innings of 34.

The fact that India won the game without a significant contribution from their captain is a great space to be in as the team heads to the Perth Test match.

Ajinkya Rahane

Against the new ball, on the very first morning of the Adelaide Test, Ajinkya Rahane played a flashy stroke outside the off stump and lost his wicket.

However, like the other batsmen, he too put away all the spunk and dug deep to play an attritional innings and forged a crucial partnership with Cheteshwar Pujara, which proved to be match-winning in the end.
