ENG VS IND: Sanjay Manjrekar Talks About Absence of KL Rahul in Test

“It was just the remarkable effort of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma at the top that saw India put up good enough scores to get the bowling to make a match out of it and get that scoreline 2-1. This time around, with KL Rahul missing out, it’s a massive setback for India.”

Manjrekar said in a virtual interaction organised by Sony Sports.

Although Sanjay Manjrekar is hoping that the selections of other players are giving him enough confidence. He shares that if the middle order goes well in the match then there will not be such issues. As we have seen earlier the Indian team always lagged because of their poor middle-order performance.

Sanjay Manjrekar adds more that he is hoping for a good performance from Shreyas Iyer along with Hanuma Vihari. And he is also expecting a strong comeback from Cheteshwar Pujara. Team India is currently leading the test series with a 2-1 score. And India’s recent test encounter was going very well. So it would be a joy to see team India taking over England’s new test setup.
