After winning the Lord’s Ground, Virat Kohli and Co. are now eyeing a win over England at Headingley Leeds. Team India batsmen and bowlers performed well in the second Test. Mohammad Siraj and Jaspreet Bumrah were forced to bowl the English batting order while KL Rahul played a good innings in Ajinkya Rahane’s batting. In such a situation, in the third Test, skipper Virat Kohli was not tempted to tinker with the winning combination. Even former Indian cricketer Ajit Agarkar is not in favor of changing the XI playing at Headingley. However, he said that if there is a change of circumstances and the pitch is dry, Ashwin could be allowed.

Speaking to Sony Sports Channel, Agarkar said, “I am not expecting any change in Playing XI unless there is a change in sudden conditions or the pitch is dry due to the hot weather.” No, Ashwin may change, but I can’t think of a reason why you want to change the team that comes after winning the Test matches without any real problems. Shardul Thakur performed well in the first Test, but in the second Test, Ishant bowled well so he could miss the match.

India currently lead 1-0 in the five-match Test series. India defeated England by 151 runs at Lord’s. Chasing a target of 272, the English batting order shattered like a card pack in front of India’s fast bowlers and the entire team was all out for just 120 runs. Captain Joe Root scored a team-high 33 runs. Mohammad Siraj took 8 wickets in the second Test for Team India. At the same time, Bumrah played 34 unbeaten innings with the bat and took 3 wickets in the second innings. A memorable 89-run partnership for the ninth wicket between Mohammed Shami and Bumrah put the British away from victory. The first Test match of the series at Trent Bridge is drawn by rain.
