“The Best Batter In 2021”, Boria Majumdar Picks A Surprising Option for India’s No.3 Spot In Tests

India's No.3 in Tests

The No.3 spot is extremely important in Test XI. The cricketer will require patience and the right skill set to do well in the role. India needs a new No.3 and popular sports journalist Boria Majumdar had an out-of-the-box option on his mind. In this article, we take a look at the interesting option suggested by Boria Majumdar for India’s No.3 spot in Tests.

India’s No.3 spot in Tests is up for grabs

Cheteshwar Pujara has been in poor form for the last few years. Against South Africa, he managed to score runs at an average of just 20. After the openers fell early, Pujara could not add much to the scoreboard. This was one of the main reasons why India lost the series. A run of poor form means that he could be dropped in future games.


At the moment, Hanuma Vihari is being tipped as the player to take up Pujara’s spot. The likes of Priyank Panchal could also get an opportunity. However, Boria Majumdar had another idea.

Boria Majumdar backed his suggestion of Rohit Sharma with solid facts. He stated that Rohit possesses skill, class and temperament in the No.3 role. Rohit is currently an opener and Boria said that KL Rahul and Shubman Gill can do the job at the top. While it is not sure if Team India would go ahead with this, the option is surely an interesting one to consider.
