India vs England 2nd Test: A 5-match Test series is being played between India and England. In the first match of the series, England defeated the Indian team by 28 runs. Now the second match of the series between the two teams will be played from February 2. This match will be played by Dr. Y.S. of Visakhapatnam. Rajasekhara Reddy will be held at ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium. Before this match, the head coach of a team has given a big statement.
There will be no fast bowler in the playing 11?
England’s Tom Hartley has hurt the mentality of the Indian batsmen by bowling brilliant spin in the first Test, after which England can go with all spin bowlers in the second Test. England head coach Brendon McCullum is now eagerly waiting to see the pitch of the second Test match. The ground in Visakhapatnam is generally known for big scores but for some time now the spinners have dominated here. McCullum said that if the conditions completely favor the spinners, then his team will not shy away from going with all the spinners in the bowling department. Shoaib Bashir may get a chance to debut in this match, while not much is known about the injury status of experienced spinner Jack Leach. If Leach remains fit, Bashir can replace Mark Wood, the only fast bowler who played in the first Test.
Head coach Brendon McCullum gave this big statement
England head coach Brendon McCullum said that if the wickets continue to turn as the series progresses as we saw in the first Test, then we will not shy away from playing all the spinners. Bashir was with us in Abu Dhabi and impressed us with his skills. He easily became a part of this group. Despite his young age and little first-class experience, he is a player who has no shortage of enthusiasm.
McCullum praised Ben Stokes
McCullum praised captain Ben Stokes for using inexperienced bowlers brilliantly. Indian batsmen had scored runs freely in the first innings against Hartley but they turned the tide of the match by taking seven wickets in the second innings. McCullum said that he did not have much first-class experience and was perhaps a bit vulnerable for selection. But we saw something in it that would have been effective here. He is a player with a strong spirit. The way the captain handled it was brilliant, and he clearly helped us win the Test. This was an example of brilliant captaincy.
