New Delhi. Team India, who got a surprise win at Lord’s, lost to England by an innings and runs in the last match. The five-match Test series ended in a 1-1 draw and now at the Oval (India v England, 4th Test), both teams will be looking to take the lead. The Indian team can go to the Oval Test with a change (India potential playing 11). Virat Kohli showed signs of change soon after losing the match in Headingley Test. Virat Kohli said that feeding fast bowlers continuous Test matches would be a torture to him and he could get injured.
Let us tell you that Team India can come down with just one change in the Oval Test. If reports are to be believed, Ishant Sharma could be rested and off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin could get a chance to replace him, who has not played in this Test series so far. The Oval’s pitch is spinner friendly and so the Indian team can go with Ashwin and Rabindra Jadeja. However, Team India’s bowling coach Bharat Arun said a decision on Ashwin’s play would be taken before the toss. Bharat Arun thinks the England team could change the mood at The Oval in the wake of the Indian spin attack. Therefore, Ashwin’s decision to play will be based on the final change of pitch.
Will Rahane get a chance?
Rahane’s place is in question due to his poor form. It is constantly being demanded to give a chance to Hanuma Bihari or Suryakumar Yadav, but it is difficult to do considering the thinking of Team India management. The Indian team stands by its players. The same was said against Pujar before the third Test, but in Headingley’s second innings he silenced the critics with a great innings of 91 runs. However, the poor form of Rahane and captain Kohli is a matter of concern. Ishav Pant can’t run either. Although it is believed that the Indian team can enter the Oval with just one change.
