The Indian team management wants to test Gill's attacking style in the absence of big players.

The Test series between guest New Zealand and host India is going to start from November 25. Team India has made a strategy to beat New Zealand in the T20 series. According to PTI News, in the first Test match, there is a lot of possibility that the Indian team management will get the talented Shubman Gill to bat in the middle order.

The Indian team management wants to test Gill's attacking style in the absence of big players. According to the information, the team management has instructed Shubman Gill to bat in the middle order.

Significantly, in the absence of captain Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane will lead the team. With Rohit Sharma missing for this two-Test series, it is a great opportunity for the team management to test Gill's skills as a middle-order batsman.

Kohli will return to the team for the Mumbai Test while Rohit will tour South Africa. Lokesh Rahul, who is running in excellent form, will open the innings where Mayank Agarwal can play the role of his partner.

Looking for middle order player

It is worth mentioning that the new selection committee led by Chetan Sharma and the current team management feel that they need at least one player in the middle order, apart from Kohli, who can trouble the opposition camp with his attack. He believes that Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Hanuma Vihari have almost the same style of batting.

Former national selector Jatin Paranjpe, who gave Gill a chance to make his Test debut in Australia, also backed it. He says that I have always believed that uniformity does not help in team selection. Playing Shubman Gill in the middle order will help the team and if he succeeds then it will be a boon for Team India.
