threat to india
All-rounder Chris Woakes has returned to the England team for the fourth Test. England head coach Chris Silverwood said on Sunday that Woakes has regained full fitness and has been included in the England squad for the fourth Test against India. Woakes is a big threat for India in this remaining series as he is an amazing player with both bat and ball.
Chris Woakes has been a big threat to India in the past too. The last time in 2018, when the Indian team came on the tour of England, in the second match of that series, Woakes had scored a century with the bat. That century is the only century of Woakes’ career. Team India was very close to winning that Test, but coming down the order, Woakes pulled the match out of India’s hands. Apart from this, the ball of Woakes swings excellently on both sides of the pitches of England. In such a situation, Woakes is now a big threat in this series for Team India.
The Indian team has lost the third test match of the series against England. In the second innings, India scored only 278 runs for the loss of 10 wickets.

With this, the series is now tied at 1-1.
