Former India batsman and commentator Akash Chopra feels that the batting department is lacking in the England team. He said the rest of the players were just filling in the squad, with the exception of England captain Joe Root on his YouTube channel. In the Lord’s Test, India beat England by 151 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match Test series. Poor batting is the main reason for England’s defeat in the second Test. With the exception of Joe Root, no batsmen have faced the Indian bowlers.
Chopra said, “There are many options available but the quality of the England team is not about quality but quality.” In batsmen, only one batsman has that quality and that is Joe Root. Speaking of the Test match, the rest of the batsmen are just completing the numbers. Especially when India has a good bowling attack. He further said, ‘This is reality. You either hate it or like it. The bowling department has surrendered to the batting side of the opposing team.

Chopra, “Dom Sibley and Jack Crowley have been dropped. David Malan and Saqib Mahmood have been called back. Shakib played well against Pakistan. You may want to increase reserve in bowling, Malan T20 champion Haseeb Hameed opens up and it looks like Malan or Oli Pope may be down the middle order.
