England Gains Momentum as Star Players Sit Out: A Chance for Redemption in the Fourth India Test…

England has received a significant boost ahead of the fourth Test against India in Ranchi, as star fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah will be sidelined for the match.

Bumrah, the leading wicket-taker in the series, has been rested due to the extensive amount of cricket he has played recently, having taken 17 wickets at an impressive average of 13.64 in the first three Tests.

In addition to Bumrah, KL Rahul will also miss the fourth Test due to injuries, providing an opportunity for Mukesh Kumar to rejoin the squad after an outstanding performance in the Ranji Trophy for Bengal.

Despite facing a 2-1 deficit in the series following a substantial defeat in the third Test, England’s captain Ben Stokes remains optimistic about their chances.

Stokes expressed confidence in the team’s ability to bounce back, emphasizing the importance of focusing on the upcoming matches rather than dwelling on past disappointments.

Coach Brendon McCullum echoed Stokes’ sentiments, highlighting the team’s progress over the past 18 months. He emphasized the need to turn the page, put pressure on India, and expressed hope for an exciting decider in the series.

In summary, England looks to capitalize on the absence of Bumrah and Rahul, aiming to level the series and potentially secure a series victory. Stokes and McCullum are focused on the upcoming challenges, emphasizing the team’s resilience and continuous improvement.
