England vs India, 4th Test: Hosts lose skipper Joe Root, 3 down

India vs England Virat Kohli Makes A Young Fan On Thursday Virat Kohli regained the top position in ICC Test Rankings for batsmen

Sam Curran who was the man of the match in first Test match has been included in the eleven nanes as he will replace Chris Woakes who is suffering from a thigh injury.

Bairstow is understood to be very disappointed over the decision having been "desperate" to retain his place behind the stumps, where Jos Buttler will take the gloves. Bairstow then spent time...

What can be expected in the fourth Test match?

As for Bairstow´s promotion in a reshaped top order, Root said: "I think he´s more than capable of batting in the top four". Indian team captain made no changes to the squad that defeated England in the previous Test match while Joe Root has made two alterations in the England squad. "He´s in fine form, he´s had a fantastic 12 months home and away". To keep the dream alive, India will need to do pretty much what they did in the third Test- bat well, build partnerships and take wickets.

"He´s in fine form; he´s gone back to his county - and what you want from global players is for them to go back and prove a point", said Root.

England´s Adil Rashid, Stuart Broad, Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes and Ollie Pope pose during nets, August 29, 2018. The grass is even. Looks like a proper Test match pitch.

"Sam went back and played for Surrey and now has another opportunity". England now leads the series 2-1.

"I think one of our big strengths as a squad is our strength of character and, at home in particular, we´re very good at bouncing back after hard weeks".

Indian Test team simply outclassed England in all departments.

"We under-performed last week - that´s the bottom line - and we have a great opportunity to put that right this time around", said Yorkshire batsman Root.

After a narrow 31-run loss in the first Test at Edgbaston, the visitors suffered an innings defeat at Lord's and were on the verge of losing the series.

In the first two Tests, India's middle order meant Virat Kohli, for batsmen on either side of him weren't contributing significantly. It's all very well mugging India at Lord's when it's damp and dark, but putting them in at Trent Bridge was a daft mistake.
