Should Pujara Play In 2nd Test Against England? Virender Sehwag Sparks Debate On Twitter

The second Test match between India and England will start on August 9 at Lord's

Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag sparked a debate on Twitter after he asked his fans if Cheteshwar Pujara should play the second Test.

Sehwag tweeted this after Pujara was dropped from Team India during the first Test match against England at Edgbaston which India lost by 31 runs.

Virat Kohli showed trust on KL Rahul and asked him to bat at crucial No 3 in the opening Test match of the five-match series. Pujara was made to sit on the bench.

Following the loss, Indian captain Kohli is facing criticism over his team selection.

On early August 6 morning, Sehwag posted on his Twitter handle, “Pope likely to play for England, Should India play Pujara in the second test. ? After all it’s Lords.”

So far, Sehwag’s tweet has 1,520 retweets and over 500 comments. Here are a few of them.

Right team combination would be the key for India as they would be hoping to bounce back in the second Test at Lord’s which commences on August 9.

Pujara might get his place in playing XI as the Indian skipper Kohli would now want a strong batting line-up.

Besides Pujara, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav may also make it to the playing XI for the Lord’s Test.
