IND vs ENG: A series of 5 test matches are being played between the Indian cricket team and the England cricket team. Where three Test matches have also ended.
But there are still two Test matches left. In the three-Test matches held before this, the first match was drawn while India won the second match. In the same third match, England’s team won the match by a big margin.
India was able to win this match due to the brilliant batting of Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah in IND vs ENG, the second test match played at Lord’s ground.
During that time a half-century came from the bat of Mohammed Shami. As a result, India fielded without change in IND vs ENG next Test match and lost the match.
In such a situation, former England captain Michael Vaughan believes that the manner in which both of those players batted in the second Test match has instilled a false sense of security in the Indian team’s batting with Tail.
They cannot keep four batsmen with weak technique from number 8 to 11. Significantly, the Indian cricket team led by Virat Kohli lost the match by an innings and 76 runs in the third IND vs ENG, test match.
In that match, India could score only 78 runs in the first innings and 278 runs in the second innings. With this, the series of 5 Test matches is now tied at 1-1.
In such a situation, former England captain Michael Vaughan believes that India’s problem can be solved by including India’s senior off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin in the playing XI.
Vaughan said in a Facebook post, “Definitely next week R Ashwin should be included in the team’s playing XI.” You can’t have a very bad batsman from number 8 to 11.
Mohammed Shami’s innings at Lord’s gave a false ray of hope to Tail. In fact, you can’t get him to bat at number 8.
Michael Vaughan said on the BBC Test Match Special podcast that R Ashwin will have to be given a chance in the next match. They survived at Lord’s but you can’t play four weak batsmen at numbers 8, 9, 10, and 11.
In such a situation, Ashwin is definitely selected in the team because apart from scoring 5 centuries in Tests, he has also taken more than 400 wickets.
