New Delhi: Team India is going to play against hosts England in the third Test of the 5-match series from today. After winning the second match of the series, the Indian team is currently 1-0 ahead in the series and the confidence of all the players is on the seventh sky. But just before the third Test, Indian team captain Virat Kohli has given big indications that there may be some changes in the team.
Virat wants to include Ashwin
Indian skipper Virat Kohli has only kept the way for off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin to make a change in the playing XI as the team management has found that the pitch will have less grass in the third Test against England at Headingley. Kohli said that India is going to announce the playing 11 and Ashwin might play because of the pitch. He said that the team management will first choose 12 players and then on Wednesday, looking at the pitch, will take a decision on Ashwin.
Kohli said this thing
The captain said, ‘As far as Ashwin’s play is concerned, we are quite surprised to see the way the pitch was looking. We have seen many surfaces but to be honest, I didn’t expect it to happen. I thought there would be a lot of grass in the pitch. but it’s not like that.’
Jadeja’s leaf is about to be cut
Kohli said, ‘Anything is possible. We always pick 12 players and then look at the pitch and choose the right combination. If Ashwin is taken, he will be included in the playing 11 in place of Ravindra Jadeja. Let us tell you that Jadeja has not performed much in the last two Test matches and he only scored a half-century. However, he has failed to show any miracle with the ball.
Team India would like to take a 2-0 lead in the series
