Chahar-Teotia will have a golden opportunity
On this tour, the team will get a chance to experiment. For the leg-spin, Rahul Chahar or Rahul Tewatia can be tested as an alternative to Yuzvendra Chahal. Apart from this, left-arm fast bowler Chetan Sakaria can also be tried on this tour. In the list of batsmen, the availability of players like Devdutt Padikkal and Shreyas Iyer will be based on their fitness.
