India has secured an unassailable 2-0 lead in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023 but one riddle that is yet to be cracked is finding a formidable opening pair. The question looms over the selection of KL Rahul who is going through a rough patch and has been removed as the vice-captain of the team for the last two Tests. When wicketkeeper KS Bharat was asked about India’s top-order for the upcoming game, he played safe and said it was the team management’s call. Recently, Bharat showcased his batting talent when India were three down in the chase of 115 in Delhi. He scored a valiant 23 not out and stood by Chesteshwar Pujara’s side to guide his team to victory. He mentioned about trusting defence and shot selection being critical on these tracks.
