<पी शैली="पाठ-संरेखण: औचित्य सिद्ध करें;">IND Vs ENG: There is sure to be a change in England's playing 11 for the match against India to be played in Rajkot from 15th February. England can take the field with two fast bowlers for the first time in the series. James Anderson's play is confirmed. Apart from this, for the first time in this series, England can also make fast bowler Ollie Robinson a part of the playing 11. However, in case of Robinson playing, spinner Rehan may have to sit out. England's number one spinner Jack Leach has already been out of the last three matches due to injury.
Till now against India, the England team has taken a surprising decision by keeping only one fast bowler in the playing 11. England is now considering changing this strategy. Tom Hartley and Shoaib Bashir are certain to play for England in the third test. Apart from these, Anderson and Robinson will be part of the playing 11. Joe Root will play the role of the third spin bowler. Root has been very successful as a bowler in this series so far. However, Mark Wood may once again have to sit out of the playing 11.
The role of pitch will also be important
Another reason for England not going with three spinners is the pitch. There are speculations that the Rajkot pitch will not be a rank turner. The pitch of Rajkot will be such where apart from spinners, batsmen and fast bowlers will also benefit. For this reason, England can take the field with only two spinners instead of three. At present, England does not have much option in spinners. After Jack Leach's exit, his replacement was not announced. Rehan is seen getting trapped in a visa dispute. The picture is yet to be clear on whether Rehan will be allowed to play in the third test or not.
