India will play the second Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia on February 17, 2023, at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi.
KL Rahul managed only 20 runs in the first Test, leading to speculation that he might be dropped for the second Test.
Former cricketer Aakash Chopra believes that KL Rahul should retain his spot in the playing XI.
Chopra suggested the only change in the Indian batting lineup should be to bring in Shreyas Iyer in place of Suryakumar Yadav.
An incumbent player like KL Rahul should not be dropped just because there is someone else waiting to take his place, according to Chopra.
Cheteshwar Pujara is set to play his 100th Test match for India in the second Test against Australia, and Chopra believes that he will want to make his milestone occasion memorable by playing a substantial knock.
India will persist with Mohammad Shami and Mohammed Siraj as the two seamers in their bowling attack, according to Chopra.
Only two fast bowlers will play in the second Test, and Umesh Yadav is unlikely to get a chance.
The Indian team management will have to make a choice between Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel in the spin-bowling department.
