Rohit Sharma(c)

Rohit Sharma will be leading Indian team in 5th test and he will open the innings. Last year, he has brilliant tour with the bat. Rohit smashed his 1st hundred outside Asia as well in this tour. He would like to continue in test from where he left.

Shubman Gill

Last year, KL Rahul was opening partner with Rohit Sharma. This time KL Rahul is out of squad and also another opener Mayank Agarwal is not available. So, Shubman Gill has higher chance of being second opener. Gill had brilliant Australian tour in 2020-2021.
