London. The names of the 11 players with whom Ben Stokes will play against Team India in the Test starting tomorrow have been revealed. The England and Wales Cricket Board announced this on Thursday. A change has been made in the squad for the third and final Test against New Zealand. Fast bowler James Anderson, who did not play the last Test due to injury, has returned. He also completed his 650 wickets in Tests during the New Zealand series itself. The fifth Test could not be played last year due to Corona. Team India is currently 2-1 ahead in the series. Indian team can land under the captaincy of Jasprit Bumrah.
The England team is currently running in excellent form. In such a situation, there will be a tough challenge in front of Team India. Recently, he defeated New Zealand 3-0 in the 3-match Test series at home. On the other hand, the Indian team is in a difficult phase. It is very difficult for regular captain Rohit Sharma to enter this match due to Corona. KL Rahul is already out. In such a situation, there will be a big responsibility on Virat Kohli.
Root and Bairstow in fine form
Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow performed brilliantly in the series against New Zealand. Both scored 2-2 centuries. Apart from this, Ollie Pope also scored a century. Bairstow scored 394 runs. During this his strike rate was 120, which is very good. At the same time, former captain Root scored the highest 396 runs in the series. Pope also played an important role in winning the team by scoring more than 250 runs.
