London: Team India was defeated by an innings and 76 runs in the third test match against England. Despite this, the England team is scared of India. The fourth test match will be played from tomorrow at The Oval. Before the fourth test, the England team is in panic. Team India was all out for just 36 runs in the second innings of the Adelaide Test against Australia in December last year and had to face a humiliating defeat within two and a half days, but without Kohli, Team India stood again and After defeating Australia 2-1 in the Test series at his home, he gave a befitting reply to everyone.
England shivering with India
Now the British are also haunted by the same fear of Team India. In England’s last Test match, India was bundled out for 78 runs, but Team India is trying to counterattack again like an injured lion. The 5-match Test series is going on at 1-1.
Root himself told the reason
Team India, forgetting the embarrassing defeat in the third Test played at Headingley against England, will now try to make a comeback with a win in the fourth Test starting at The Oval from September 2. At the same time, before this fourth Test, a fear is haunting Joe Root. England captain Joe Root said that he will have to keep Indian skipper Virat Kohli calm in the next two Tests if he wants to win the five-match series. The eyes of the whole world are on the Oval Test starting from Thursday.
Root told Virat the best in the world
Root said, ‘So far we have kept Virat calm and the credit goes to our bowling attack. Virat is a world class player. So the credit should be given to our bowling group. We have been able to keep Virat calm, it is a very good effort from our bowling group and if we want to win this series then we have to keep it up.
Root said, ‘We have found ways to get Virat out. He is a good player and has done a great job in Test cricket. We have to look at ways to get the best players out. There is a world class team like India led by Virat Kohli. It is important that we do not get confused. We have to work harder now.
The wind of England coach also came out
England team assistant coach Paul Collingwood said before the Oval Test that the Indian team is ready to make a strong comeback. He said that his team is fully prepared for this. India made a spectacular comeback in the series against Australia at the beginning of the year and won the Gabba Test to take the series 2-1.
There was too much movement in the pitch
Paul Collingwood said in a virtual media interaction with select Indian journalists, ‘It is easy to criticize the Indian batsmen, but there was a lot of movement in the pitch of the third Test on the first day. It was such conditions that with little moisture on the pitch, things were not easy for the batsmen.
India will retaliate
On his return to India, Collingwood said, ‘I am sure that we are preparing ourselves for the return of India. We know that his team is of very high quality and we have always prepared ourselves that in the new conditions at The Oval, he will be 100 percent ready for the next match. Collingwood, who played 68 Tests for England, said that the Indian team, like Australia, is a bit harsh when it comes to aggression on the field.
