There have been two games of the five-match Test series between India and England and India have taken a 1-0 lead here. Although the English team was strong in the fifth day of the Lord’s Test, the team scored a huge 151-run victory. There were many reasons for the defeat of England, but most of all the top-order batsmen failed. Ronnie Burns, Dominic Sibley and Haseeb Hamid could not perform better. The English side, who are trailing 0-1 in the series, can now make some changes in the third Test at Headingley. Sibley is believed to be out in this early game.

If we look at the combination of the third Test, the Englishmen can take Sibley out with a new opening pair in the form of Robbie Burns and Haseeb Hamid. Not everything is going well with England in this series. Fast bowling veteran Stuart Broad has already been ruled out of the entire series due to injury and has now increased the pressure of Mark Wood’s injury squad, who have performed brilliantly in the Lord’s Test. In such a situation, he is not sure of playing in the Third Test. In addition to these players, Joffra Archer, Chris Vox is also out of the series.
