New Delhi: Team India, who beat England by 151 runs at the historic ground of Lord’s, would now like to double their lead by winning the third Test. The third match of the 5-match series against England will be played in Leeds from tomorrow. Before this match, it will be interesting to see whether the captain of the team Virat Kohli will make some changes in his team or not.
Vaughan suggests replacing Ashwin
Meanwhile, former England captain Michael Vaughan has given a big statement regarding the selection of Team India. Talking to Cricbuzz, Vaughan said, ‘It seems like it’s a good week. During the third Test, the pitch will be very dry and the sun will also come out. So I would be surprised if Ashwin doesn’t play in this match. I think the Indian team will go on the field with three fast bowlers and two spinners, which I think will be a good decision at Headingley. You play with your three great fast bowlers. Ishant Sharma may miss out on getting a chance in the playing XI. Even if Ishant had a good spell on the last day at Lord’s.
Headingley pitch gets turn
Michael Vaughan said that it would be better to land at Headingley ground with two spin bowlers as the spinners get good turn there. Vaughan said, ‘It has been seen in the last few years that there is a lot of spin on the pitch here. You get spin on this wicket. Usually on the third, fourth and fifth day the ball turns a lot so spin can play a role in Leeds. I will not be worried about replacing R Ashwin.
