Prime Time Zone, Sports: Team India, which won with the boys in Australia, entered the ring with a full-fledged team and suffered a heavy defeat in the Chennai Test. Until then, Team India, the top team in the World Test Championship final race, had slipped to fourth place with a single defeat. If he wins the second Test, which starts tomorrow, he will definitely be in the series race, the Test Championship final race. The team has already done a full review on the first Test defeat .. is fully prepared for the second Test.
Captain Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri are squabbling over the final team composition. As the strategy of the three spinners in the first Test went awry .. I became interested in what tactics to go into the ring for the second Test. England, on the other hand, are coming into the ring with full confidence with their first Test victory. With one exception, England will play the second Test against the old team. The English team is looking forward to the World Test Championship final with a Test series victory.
Changes in bowling ..
The Indian team is likely to enter the ring with changes, especially in bowling. The Indian bowlers bowled 190 overs for England in the first innings of the first Test. The original bowlers were unable to make an impact on the first day. Akshar Patel, who has been ruled out of the second Test due to a left heel injury, looks set to miss the second Test. Akshar, who has a good reputation as a spinner all-rounder in domestic cricket and the IPL, is expected by the team management to make an impact on the Chennai pitch. Shahbaz Nadeem, who played in the first Test, failed to make a big impact.
It is learned that Akshar Patel will be included in the final squad. The BCCI has also recently added Shahbaz Nadeem to the standby players and Akshar Patel to the key players. Kuldeep was criticized for not getting hurt in the first Test. But Washington Sundar will have to be sidelined to play Kuldeep. But with Sundar in good form in terms of batting, it is unclear whether he will continue on his own or take on Kuldeep. If Team India wants to take another fast bowler, it seems that there is a possibility of playing Hardik Pandya instead of Sundar. But, with the curator saying the pitch would turn from day one, analysts expect the three-spinner Vuhanne to run.
Rohit, Rahane should be in the ass ..
Opener Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane failed miserably in the first Test against England on the tour of Australia. The burden falls on the rest as the two key players in the top order fail in a row. Rahane is failing in a row after scoring a century in Melbourne. Rohit Sharma is unable to support fellow opener Gill. If the two meet, Team India will have no problem batting. Captain Virat Kohli’s return to form, Pant, Sundar and Pujara playing to suit the needs of the team. With the spinning pitch being used for the second Test, England need to face the spinners more boldly. Dom Bess and Jack Leach are in good form. The Indian team is practicing with the sninners in the nets as the ball spins fast.
England with key changes ..
The England team is continuing the form it started with the Sri Lanka series. Entering the ring with full confidence with the victory of the first Test. Keeper Joss Butler has been replaced by Ben Fox as he returns to England to rest. Joffre Archer has been ruled out with a hamstring injury and will be replaced by Stuart Broad. Anderson was replaced by Chris Vokes in the final squad. Moin Ali replaced Dom Bess, who excelled in the first Test. Making changes to the winning team surprised many .. It seems that the team has made key changes as changes are taking place on the pitch.
