Who is Akash Deep who can get a chance in the playing XI in place of Bumrah in the fourth Test?

The fourth match of the five-match Test series between India and England begins on Friday (February 23). This match will be played in Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand. Team India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah was rested for this game. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see which fast bowler will be paired with Mohammad Siraj.

In Bumrah’s absence, Team India has two fast bowling options. First Mukesh Kumar and second Akash Deep. Mukesh Kumar has also acted in this series once. He got a chance in the Visakhapatnam Test where he looked completely colorless. In such a situation, the chances of Akash Deep making his Test debut are high. This player can contribute well to Team India in batting and fast bowling.

Akash Deep hasn’t had a chance to make his international debut yet. However, this player’s statistics in first-class cricket were excellent. Akash Deep, who made his first-class debut in December 2019, has taken 104 wickets in 30 matches so far. During this period his bowling average was 23.58. It is these strong performances in first-class cricket that earned him a place in the Indian squad for the England series. Akash Deep recently bowled brilliantly against England Lions while playing for India-A. He had taken 10 wickets in two matches. Even during training sessions, he showed better rhythm.

Akash Deep plays domestic cricket for Bengal. He is a right-arm fast bowler. He has also appeared in IPL. He plays IPL for Royal Challengers Bangalore. Akash Deep’s performance is good in white-ball cricket but he has proven that he is more effective with red-ball. He looks deadlier with the red ball. For this reason, when Mohammed Shami was absent from the England series due to injury, the team management felt it was better to keep this bowler in the squad.
