NEW DELHI, Dec 21: Legendary Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar wants KL Rahul to open in place of an out-of-form Prithvi Shaw in the second Test against Australia at the MCG from December 26.
The former India captain wants Shubman Gill to play in the middle-order.
�India will look at making 2 changes. Firstly, maybe KL Rahul should replace Prithvi Shaw as an opener. At No. 5 or No. 6, Shubman Gill should come in. His form has been good. Things can change if we start well,� Gavaskar told YouTube channel Sports Tak on possible changes in the line-up.
He did caution that if India can�t stay positive, a 0-4 drubbing might just be on cards.
�India have to believe that they can come back in the remainder of the Test series. If India don�t find the positivity, then 4-0 series loss can happen. But if they have positivity, why not? It can happen (comeback),� Gavaskar said, sounding hopeful. � PTI
