- Know the India-England playing XI
- Both have made changes in their teams
The teams of India and England are facing each other in the second Test from Thursday. This match is being played at the historic Lord’s ground in London. The first match of the five-Test series was drawn due to rain, after which both the teams would now like to take the lead. Both the teams have landed in the second match with changes. Many players have returned.
Ashwin’s return almost certain
Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin’s return was almost certain after the injury of all-rounder Shardul Thakur, but it could not happen. Ashwin was not given a place in the playing XI in the first Test, due to which there was a lot of criticism from the Indian team management. However, now he has been left out in the second Test as well. Fast bowler Ishant Sharma has been entered in the playing XI in place of Shardul. He could not make it to the first Test due to being unfit.
no change in batting
While there was one change in the Indian bowling attack in the second Test, there was no change in the batting order. Openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul performed the responsibility well in the first Test. Even though Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane’s bat remained silent, these players have the power to turn the game around when they are on their day. The responsibility of wicketkeeping lies with Rishabh Pant. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is also in the squad as he scored a half-century in the first innings.
England kicked them out?
England’s batsmen did not perform much in the first Test, due to which changes have been made in the batting line-up. Except Captain Joe Root, no one could hit fifty. Root had taken England to a respectable score by scoring a half-century in the first innings and a century in the second innings. Haseeb Hameed has been kept in the playing XI in place of Jack Crowley. At the same time, Moeen Ali has been included in place of Daniela Lawrence.
Wood instead of Stuart Broad?
England suffered a major setback in the form of fast bowler Stuart Broad ahead of the Lord’s Test. Broad has been ruled out of the entire series against India due to injury. He is battling a knee injury. In such a situation, the fast bowler Mark Wood has returned to the team.
