Michael Vaughan Makes Big Virat Kohli Prediction Ahead Of 4th Test

Even among the A-team squads shadowing the main team, he was picked only for the oneday tri-series.

They had been whitewashed 5-0 in Australia, gone through the controversy of sacking Kevin Pietersen, suffered a home series defeat by Sri Lanka and were 1-0 down to India after two matches.

With his unconventional action and discipline, Jasprit Bumrah has made himself an integral part of Test side The senior keeper-batsman then had a horror run with the bat at Edgbaston and Lord's.

With England 2-1 ahead in the five-match series, but having lost the latest Test at Trent Bridge by 203 runs, Bairstow will bat at No 4 as a specialist batsman despite a cracked finger and a reluctance to give up the...

He went on to have a reasonable outing on his debut, scoring 24 in the first innings.

Root, explaining why Bairstow was playing as a batsman, with England white-ball gloveman Buttler keeping wicket, told reporters at Southampton on Wednesday: "It was a medical call".

That is the only thing Ican do, and that is what I have learnt.

Tony Finau, who could join DeChambeau in the mix for a US Ryder Cup spot, finished second with a 68 to go 14 under. Meanwhile, Australian Jason Day carded a lacklustre even-par 71 to finish tied 20th at eight-under.

"[The weather and overhead conditions] are going to be a massive factor as well because it's been cold for the last couple of days and it's going to remain like that from what I understand. That is the only solution".

That 2014 Test also saw Alastair Cook end a run of low scores with an innings of 95 and England would be delighted if their all-time leading Test run-scorer put another bad trot behind him in similar fashion this week. The standout moment for Pant came when he smacked leg-spinner Adil Rashid for a six off the second ball that he faced in Test cricket. "(But) when I see the ball I don't think too much, just see the ball and react to it. That is what happened.

As for Bairstow´s promotion in a reshaped top order, Root said: "I think he´s more than capable of batting in the top four".

According to a statement by England and Wales Cricket Board, captain Joe Root said, "Chris Woakes is not fit to play this week and Ben Stokes has a slight issue so for the balance of the side Moeen Ali comes in for Ollie Pope".

Normalcy has been hard-earned for Pant. "It was a dream for me to play Test match cricket". But I started from zero. There is struggle in everyone's life, and there was in mine too. "There is struggle in everyone's life, but you realise that if you work hard with dedication in anything, you will definitely achieve the goal". Pant has said before that Sinha is more father than father-figure for him, such has been his influence on his development.

Inclusion of a second spinner may appear a little surprising, given that the Ageas Bowl pitch sports a green look on the eve of the Test and is renowned as one of the quickest wickets in England.

"I'm very thankful to (A team coach) Rahul Dravid sir, but my coach Tarak Sinha, who has seen me from my childhood, has helped me at every point in my life". He also applauded captain Virat Kohli for playing a key role in India's win.
