The five-match Test series is being played between India and England, with India leading 1-0 after two matches. The first Test of the series was played in Nottingham, which ended in a draw, the second Test was played at Lord’s Cricket Ground, and India won by 151 runs on the last day. Following this defeat, the England cricket team, led by Joe Root, has been targeted by former cricketers. Former England captain Andrew Strauss has also sharply classified Joe Root and Co., praising Virat Kohli.
After losing control of the match, England lost by 151 runs on the last day. Strauss told Sky Sports, ‘They were close to winning but the match was out of their hands before lunch on the last day. The top order has fallen again. “It put pressure on the middle order and India had enough overs to get him out,” he said. He said, ‘Any series can be competitive with India and especially Virat Kohli. He played good Test cricket for five days.
Strauss said, ‘India deserves the win. He did his best to win. The defeat for the England team is long over. He demanded a change in England’s top order. For the first time in the history of England Test, both openers were dismissed without opening an account in both innings. Strauss said, ‘England has a lot of problems. Not in the form of Dom Sible. Olly Pope’s return is necessary but is this the right time to put him in third place? All these questions must be found. Following this statement from Strauss, England have also made changes to their Test squad. Both Sibley and Jack Crowley have been dropped from the team.
