New Delhi. The fourth match of the five-Test series between India and England (India vs England, Fourth Test) will be played at the Oval from Thursday. This match is very important for both the teams as the series is currently tied at 1-1. India won the match at Lord’s by 151 runs, followed by England’s innings at Leeds and a big win by 76 runs. It is expected that the playing XI of both the teams will be changed in this match. Speaking of the Indian team, there are rumors that Ashwin will be playing in the series for the first time, but Indian bowling coach Bharat Arun said the decision to play the star off-spinner would be taken before the match on Thursday morning. Although Team India’s bowling coach has also admitted that these England players are afraid of Ashwin’s qualifications, Team India is still ashamed to include him in the playing XI.
One of the best off-spinners in the world, Ashwin has been out in the first three Tests, where Rabindra Jadeja is preferred as the batting all-rounder. Arun said, ‘Ashwin is one of the best bowlers in the world and it is unfortunate that he has not been able to play yet. If the opportunity arises and it is according to the team’s strategy, both can bowl together.
England will change the pitch of the Oval!
Arun further hinted that the nature of the pitch could be changed as England batsmen are afraid to face Ashwin and the weather in England is also uncertain. “The Oval has been helpful for the spinners but you also know that if the England team is afraid of Ashwin’s ability to do what he can if he helps the pitch here,” he said. “The decision will be made after seeing the pitch tomorrow morning because a lot can happen from today to tomorrow,” he said. We will decide tomorrow whether he will play or not. (With language input)
