Kanpur: Men in Blue will be without Shikhar Dhawan or Ajinkya Rahane when they will play England amid the cheers of local fans. Then who will open Indian innings at the Green Park stadium?
As skipper Virat Kohli has already cleared that he is in no mood to drop out-of-form openers, so in that case Lokesh Rahul would be the first pick to open Friday’s game. The other opening slot still remains vacant despite Mandeep Singh in the house. Mandeep would not be the perfect choice after his not-so-good performances in the previous given chances in International Cricket.
