New Delhi: The fourth match of the 5-match Test series between India and England has started from today at The Oval. In this match, except Indian captain Virat Kohli, all the batsmen of Team India were flop. But Kohli gave some such players a chance in this test, who once again disappointed everyone.
This batsman flopped again
Team India’s vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane, like this entire series, once again flopped in the fourth Test. Rahane got out for just 14 runs. The way Rahane has played in this series so far, it is surprising to see that Virat Kohli gave him another chance in the fourth match in a row. Rahane has been in very poor form in this entire series and has hit only one fifty so far. In such a situation, it was believed that in the fourth Test, Kohli would give a chance to Suryakumar Yadav in place of Rahane. But this did not happen and Kohli once expressed confidence in Rahane only.
It was believed that Rahane’s exit
Ajinkya Rahane is failing again and again. In the second innings of the third Test against England, he was dismissed for just 10 runs. While veteran batsmen like Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and Rohit Sharma were trying hard to take out Team India, Rahane once again disappointed. He has been running in poor form for a long time and it would not be wrong to say that it has a big impact on the performance of Team India.
All the batsmen disappointed
In the fourth test match against England, except Virat Kohli, all the batsmen of Team India flopped. Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Rishabh Pant all failed to show any great feat. Although Kohli scored 50 runs, he missed once again in scoring a century.
1-1 draw series
The 5-match series between Team India and England is currently tied at 1-1. The first match of this series was a draw due to rain. After which India defeated England in the second Test played at Lord’s. However, in the third Test, England returned and won the match in a one-sided fashion and the series was tied at 1-1.
