This strong player will be used in the fourth Test against England. Who will be held responsible for this?

India vs England 4th Test: Team India has now taken the lead in the Test series between India and England. After three matches, India have won two matches and England have won one match. Now it is the turn of the fourth game, which will be played in Ranchi from February 23. In this game, some changes can be seen in Team India’s playing eleven. Especially the news that has come out so far. It was announced that KL Rahul might return in the fourth game. Jasprit Bumrah, on the other hand, can be rested. Now the question is who will be released due to Rahul’s return and who will come into the team in place of Jasprit Bumrah.

KL Rahul could return in the Ranchi Test

KL Rahul only played the first game against England and got injured. Although Rahul played an excellent innings of 86 runs in difficult times in the first innings of this match, it was 22 runs with his bat in the second innings. He then dropped out of the second test. When BCCI announced Team India again before the third match, it was announced that Rahul had been included in the team, but a condition was maintained that he will only play if he is fully fit. He was out again before the game even started. When KL Rahul was ruled out, Devdutt Padikkal was included in the team. However, Devdutt could not play the third game as he was not given a chance in the starting XI.

The blame could lie with Rajat Patidar

Meanwhile, KL Rahul has a few more days of rest. There is also a difference of a few days between the third and fourth games. In such a situation, there are chances of him making a comeback in the game in Ranchi. Meanwhile, Sarfaraz Khan got a chance, he scored half-centuries in both innings. It is believed that Rajat Patidar may have to miss out if KL Rahul returns. He played two games in the series but couldn’t pitch a big inning once. On his debut he scored 32 and 9 runs. After that, his bat scored five more zero runs in the Rajkot Test. That means he couldn’t score a single half-century. In such a situation, it shouldn’t be surprising if he is forced to sit outside. However, before that, we should wait for the BCCI to announce whether KL Rahul is fully fit for the fourth game.

Jasprit Bumrah can also be given rest

There is also news that Jasprit Bumrah may be rested in the fourth Test. He played three consecutive matches and took wickets. If Bumrah misses out, Mohammed will definitely play against Siraj, but who will be the other fast bowler? It is believed that this could be Mukesh Kumar. If the Indian team management decides to field two pacers, Siraj and Mukesh could get a chance, whereas if only one pacer gets a chance, it is possible that Akshar Patel could return once again and work as a pacer. But Siraj should play. However, there are still three days left for the fourth game, so the condition of the pitch will only be decided afterwards.
