India vs England Ranchi Test: Team India is currently leading 2-1 in the 5-match series between India and England. England surprised everyone by winning the first game but after that the Indian team made a comeback and by winning the remaining two games in a row they not only leveled the series but also took the lead. Now the fourth match, to be played in Ranchi, has become much more important. Meanwhile, England announced their playing XI for this game a day earlier. Overall there were two changes in the team.

Ollie Robinson and Shoaib Bashir got a place in the team

The English team has continuously announced its playing eleven a day before the series match. This time too it happened in the same tradition. It was reported from England that two changes were made in the third match in Ranchi. Ollie Robinson has a chance to play in the team while Shoaib Bashir has returned. Shoaib Bashir has played the match before but Ollie Robinson will get the chance to play in the series for the first time. Mark Wood is out due to the arrival of Robinson, while Shoaib Bashir has been included in the team in place of Rehan Ahmed. There were no changes in the rest of the team. This means that the England team will once again field two pacers.

There are no changes in the rest of the team

Jack Crawley and Ben Duckett will once again play the role of opening batsman for England, as they have done before, and they have also given their team good starts. Another thing is that the rest of the batsmen are not capable of playing big innings. Ollie Pope, who missed the double century against India, will be back at number three. While the former captain will fulfill his responsibilities on route number four. However, his bat has not been used in the entire series this time around, which could be a matter of concern for England. After Jonny Bairstow, captain Ben Stokes will play himself. While Ben Fox takes care of the responsibilities behind the wicket. The team’s bowling command lies in the hands of Tom Hartley, Ollie Robinson, James Anderson and Shoaib Bashir. While Joe Root is a regular bowler for the team, there are also reports that captain Ben Stokes will also be seen bowling in the next game.
