IND Vs ENG: Will the spinners perform well in the third Test starting February 15 at the Rajkot field or will we see the power of the fast bowlers? Indian star spinner Kuldeep Yadav gave the answer to this question. Kuldeep Yadav says that from a Test match perspective, a much better wicket will be seen in Rajkot. Kuldeep has made it clear that the Rajkot pitch will not be a rank-turner. This means there is a lot of potential for batsmen and fast bowlers on this pitch.
Earlier, there were speculations that spin bowlers could get help from day one on the Rajkot pitch. However, Kuldeep Yadav gave an update on the pitch two days before the match. Kuldeep Yadav said, “Rajkot’s pitch will be very good.” It cannot be said that this pitch is dominated solely by spin bowlers. Batsmen can score runs on this pitch. There are a lot of options on the field for fast bowlers too.”
India needs to make changes in the playing team
From a pitching perspective, major changes can be seen in India’s playing XI. There were earlier speculations that the team management might take the field with four fast spinners. However, if the pitch is not a rank turner, only three spinners will be included in the 11 players played. Ravindra Jadeja’s return has been confirmed. Along with Jadeja, R Ashwin and Akshar Patel will be part of the playing XI. In such a situation, Kuldeep Yadav may have to sit out. Jasprit Bumrah’s game has been confirmed. In addition to Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj will also return to the playing eleven. Siraj had a break from the second Test.
