In some breaking news coming in England have announced their squad for the upcoming third test against India at Ahmedabad.
The English have gone ahead and included wicket-keeper batsmen Jonny Bairstow and fast bowler Mark Wood in the squad.
Both these players were not a part of the first 2 tests owing to the rotation policy of the ECB. On another note, the man who hit 3 sixes of 3 deliveries against Axar Patel and has become a hot-topic ahead of the IPL Auctions, Moeen Ali, will unfortunately not be a part of the third test as he has to return home for personal reasons.
In a massive boost for the England Cricket Team Jofra Archer who was struck with an elbow injury and had to miss the second test would be back in action and would be itching to bowl with the pink cherry in hand at Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad. It would be interesting to see the playing XI the English put out on the park as we could expect some serious changes after a massive 317 run defeat against the Indians at Chennai.
There is a serious chance for Jonny Bairstow to play instead of maybe a Burns or Sibley and also expect England to go with an extra fast bowler owing to the pink ball test. Can we see all 3 – Jofra Archer, Stuart Broad & James Anderson playing together? Well, England would certainly be tempted by that and we shall leave it to that.
Meanwhile Here is England’s Full Squad for the third test:
Joe Root (c), James Anderson, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Dom Bess, Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Zak Crawley, Ben Foakes, Dan Lawrence, Jack Leach, Ollie Pope, Dom Sibley, Ben Stokes, Olly Stone, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.
