POLL | Do You Agree With the Decision to Drop Pujara from the Playing XI?

There has been a lot of speculation about the make-up of India’s playing XI for the opening Test against England. In the end, India fielded a side comprising of four fast bowlers and just one spinner. Perhaps the bigger talking point was the exclusion of Cheteshwar Pujara, with India preferring K L Rahul for his spot at number three behind the established opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan & Murali Vijay. Pujara has endured a dry patch of late and failed in both innings of the warm-up match as well.

So, CricketNext asks, Do you agree with the management’s decision to leave him out of the playing XI?
