England have comeback in style to level the series after a scintillating win against the visitors in India after losing in the most embarrassing way possible in the 2nd test at Lord’s. England couldn’t manage to bat out just 60 overs in the 2nd test courtesy some extraordinary bowling by the Indian pacemen.
They came into the 3rd test with Mark Wood declared unfit and with odds against them but they showed that they are a class test side atleast at home conditions. England are already missing their premium all rounder in Ben Stokes along with their veteran fast bowler in Stuart Broad and one of world’s fastest bowler in Jofra Archer.
It was quite visible that James Anderson was bowling not upto the mark in the 2nd innings at Leeds. He has played 3 back to back test games and it wont be a bad idea to rest him for the 4th game which is starting in less than 4 days time.
England might consider replacing their legendary bowler James Anderson with Mark Wood who is now declared fit for the 4th test at Kennington Oval, London.
Ollie Robinson was the pick of the bowlers in the 2nd innings at Leeds when the conditions flattened out. He was immaculate with his line and length and was consistently setting up the batter in a brilliant way that never allowed the batters to get into a good rhythm.
The lanky swing bowler from Kent is the leading wicket taker of the series with 16 wickets in 3 games at an average of just above 19. He has formed a brilliant new ball pair along with James Anderson. He has made sure that England aren’t missing Stuart Broad even one bit. With the series tied at 1-1 after 3 games, the 4th test is scheduled to take place in London on 4th of September.
