<p>After a tedious wait, Sarfaraz, who has been scoring a lot in the local league, received a call-up.</p>
<p>Sarfaraz, a middle-order batsman, is now expected to make his Test debut, although Rajat Patidar will be challenging him for the position. Prior to this, Patidar was included in lieu of Virat Kohli, who would miss the first two Tests for personal reasons.</p>
<p>However, Aakash Chopra, a former opener for India, believes that Sarfaraz is a better choice because to his unconventional strokeplay and ability to play spinners.</p>
<p>Rajat Patidar and Sarfaraz Khan have joined the Test team. Virat Kohli and Ruturaj Gaikwad are still absent. India’s next task is to play Sarfaraz or Rajat Patidar. Sarfaraz is a really excellent spin player and plays in an unconventional way, so you may choose him,” Chopra said on his YouTube channel.</p>
<p>Rahul’s right quadriceps ailment is his most recent fitness setback; he suffered a thigh injury during an IPL play last year that sidelined him for many months.</p>
<p>The biggest issue facing KL Rahul professionally has been this. Numerous times, diseases or injuries have struck at the wrong moment. He batted confidently in the second innings as well, given his performance in the first, according to Chopra.</p>
<p>“On our squad, there aren’t many players that can sweep. KL Rahul will now miss this game as he plays the sweep with Rohit Sharma, the speaker said.</p>
