Plenty of headache for Skipper ahead of 1st test !

KL Rahul celebrating his fifty with M Vijay
India's real test will be tested in whites which will start from 1st of August. Team India's skipper Virat Kohli have Plenty of headache for the team selection and playing condition as weather forecast for upcoming days is not so good.

1. Who should open with Vijay

Murli Vijay has been India's regular test opener from one side over the last few years, but neither Shikhar Dhawan or nor KL Rahul has performed consistently. Shikhar Dhawan grabs duck in both the innings against Essex in 3 day practice match however he had scored century in the last test match in Bangalore and as far as KL rahul is concerned he has been in fine touch through the ipl.

2. Uncertainty over Pujara

Overseas record of Cheteshwar Pujara is not so good nethier he has performed much in country and practice match. Karun Nair who has been selected over Rohit sharma could be an option in a long test match series.

3. Combination of Bowlers

Without Bhuvi and bumrah, India's pace attack looked so fade against essex and Ravi Ashwin got injured while doing nets and he didn't bowl a single over. Ashwin injury could be a concerned for team India.

India's Possible playing XI for the first test- 

 1. Murli Vijay
 2. KL Rahul
 3. Cheteshwar Pujara
 4. Virat Kohli
 5. Ajinkay Rahane
 6. Dinesh Karthik  
 7. Hardhik Pandya
 8. Ashwin
 9. Umesh Yadav
10. Ishant Sharma
11. Shami
