New Delhi: Team India recently dusted off Australia, now it’s England. The series of 4 tests between India and England (IND vs ENG) will start on February 5, the thrill of the cricket test will be seen again at the Chepak ground in Chennai.
The Indian team will be missed by Jadeja
On England’s last visit to India in December 2016, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja together took 54 wickets from England’s 93 wickets and India won the five-game test series 4-0. bears his name.
Due to a broken thumb, Ravindra Jadeja will be unable to compete in the first two tests of the four-game test series with England. It’s obvious that Jadeja’s lack is sure to devour the team. In such a situation India may have to choose one of the Kuldeep Yadav, Washington Sundar and Akshar Patel as the spinner along with Ashwin.
Ravichandran Ashwin has announced that he will play a match with a half mustache, if Cheteshwar Pujara fulfills this requirement
Left arm spinner Jadeja (Ravindra Jadeja) has so far taken 157 wickets in India out of its 220 wickets. He has taken five wickets or more nine times in tests so far and among those he has achieved this feat at home seven times. Jadeja of Saurashtra has pace and variety, which makes her successful on Indian pitches, where the turn begins on day one.
But in the absence of Jadeja in the first two tests, India will have to depend on its reserve spinners, who have little experience playing the test.
These players may have a chance
India beat veteran Ravichandran Ashwin (with Washington Sundar (one test), left arm spinner Axar Patel (no test) and Kuldeep (six tests) for the first two tests from MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai to from February 5. Ravichandran Ashwin) is selected.
There is a high probability that India could play with five specialist bowlers in the first test. It can have three spinners and two fast bowlers, including the Sundar (Washington Sundar). Sundar, who made his test debut in Brisbane on a tour of Australia, can do wonders with the bat and ball.
Question about Kuldeep’s return
Team management have also indicated that Kuldeep could have a chance to play in the series at home. Acting captain Ajinkya Rahane and bowling coach Bharat Arun have previously said the wrist spinner has trained a lot on the Nets, but he hasn’t had the chance to play in Australia.
Chinese bowler Kuldeep Yadav has not played a test match for more than two years. On the Australian tour, he played against Australia-A in Sydney, where he didn’t get a wicket in 16 overs.
In such a situation, Sundar and Ashwin may also have a chance to replace Kuldeep Yadav because this land in Chennai is the original land of Sundar and Ashwin.
