Parthiv Patel Comeback in Mohali Test against England
Question in detail
Parthiv Patel comes as the only replacement for Wriddhiman Saha for the time being. Parthiv Patel's comeback in Mohali Test against England fell into place given Saha's injury. Well played Parthiv; all praise to the southpaw for not throwing the opportunity that came his way after an eight-year of exile from Test cricket! He scored 42 and 54-ball 67 not out in the last game to power India an emphatic 8-wicket win at Mohali. Parthiv Patel's runs in third Test against England ensured India an early finish on day four.
Though it was all-rounders' show at Mohali, Parthiv also didn't perform less well. He was just phenomenal, particularly in the second innings. The comeback-man contributed his bit in India's mission to get an unassailable 2-0 lead. Before hitting a roaring 54-ball 67*, Parthiv scored a gritty 42 in the first innings, thereby helping India stamp an easy win. If Saha recovers from injury, Parthig may have to go back to Ranji Trophy. But, he would not get disappointed at all. Parthiv Patel's runs in third Test against England has proved that he is the No. 2 wicket-keeper India has at the moment.
Will Parthiv Patel be retained for the fourth Test against England at Mumbai?
