Team India’s excitement has increased even after reaching the loser’s seat and winning the Lord’s Test. India will face the English side in Leeds on 25 August. In the third game of the series, India could go with a change and possibly in the spin department. According to reports, Team India, led by Virat Kohli, could replace off-spinner R Ashwin for Ravindra Jadeja. Ashwin has not yet had the opportunity to play in the First and Second Test matches at Nottingham and Lord’s. There is a reason, India usually goes with three pacers and two spinners, but on the England tour, the team decided to play with a combination of 4 pacers and one spinner.

According to a report by ‘Insight Sport’, Ashwin could take this opportunity as Jadeja is not doing well with the ball. Jadeja has played both matches in the series, but has never been able to get a single wicket. However, Jadeja has performed well in the bat. At Nottingham he scored 56, while at Lord’s he scored 40 in the lower order. One of the main reasons for Ashwin’s playing is that he played a warm-up match for Surrey in Test cricket before the Test series began and increased England’s pressure by taking six wickets in an innings.

You can play. ‘Then the rain started, and then the team had to change the decision.
