Ben Stokes will play master stroke to save the series, this did not happen in the first 3 matches

India vs England 4th Test : The English team roared by registering victory in the first match of the Test series being played between India and England. It was believed that whatever the result, the England team would give a good fight to India. But the way Team India played in the second and third Test, the English team did not seem to be lasting anywhere. Meanwhile, preparations are now being made for the fourth test match. It has been learned that England captain Ben Stokes can do something in the match to be held in Ranchi, which he has not done in the three matches played so far.

Ben Stokes can also handle the bowling

Actually, the England team has entered with 5 bowlers in the first three test matches. Here 5 bowlers are bowling throughout the innings. Captain Ben Stokes is counted among the star all-rounders of the world, but he has not bowled for some time. It is believed that if everything goes well, he can also take charge of the bowling in the next match. Ben Stokes had a knee operation last year, after which he is playing but only batting for his team. It is said that the doctor and physio have advised him not to bowl until he recovers completely. However, whenever he gets a chance, Stokes is bowling in the nets and also looks fit.

What did Stokes say after the Rajkot test?

After the third match played in Rajkot, when Ben Stokes was asked about bowling, he said that he is neither saying yes nor no. He says that he is always optimistic about most things. He said that he will talk to the medical team, only after that it will be decided whether to bowl or not. Ben Stokes not only leads his team to victory with the bat, he also has the ability to do wonders in bowling. If we look at his bowling figures in Test cricket, we find that he has taken 197 wickets in 100 Tests. That means he needs only 3 more successes to complete his 200 hunts in this format.

Options will open for the team

If Ben Stokes bowls, the extra pressure on the bowlers will also be reduced. Also, the team will have the option to play only one pacer and replace him with a batsman in their playing eleven. Even if the England team management decides to play two pacers, there will be no impact. However, all these decisions will be taken after looking at the Ranchi pitch.

This series is being played under the World Test Championship

The Test series being played between India and England is being played under the World Test Championship. In this, Team India has reached second place, but the condition of England is very bad. The England team is currently at eighth position in the WTC points table. Its PCT is currently 21.88. If England has to maintain its contention to play in the final of this tournament, then it will have to win at least one of these remaining two test matches, otherwise the problems for the team are likely to increase in the future. Can come.

England Test Team: Ben Stokes (captain), Rehan Ahmed, James Anderson, Gus Atkinson, Jonny Bairstow, Shoaib Bashir, Harry Brook, Jack Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ben Fox, Tom Hartley, Ollie Pope, Ollie Robinson, Joe Root, Mark Wood.
