India vs England 2018 4th Test Match Preview and Updates

India vs England 2018 4th Test Match Preview and Updates
Written by Abhishek Lohia

There is a lot of discussion happening these days of India’s return to the five-Test match series in England, After trailing by 0-2, Team India is now trailing by 1-2 in this series. Last match win was very special for Team India. On one other hand, the team has proved that it does not have a weak batting on the foreign pitches. Having faced brilliantly English Pacer, team India scored more than 300 runs in both innings of the Nottingham Test and proved that Team India is now recovering from being a much better team in English Conditions.

Now the remaining two matches of this series will be a tough test for Team India. The important role of preparing for the England team is in his homework. The England team closely observes the weaknesses of the opposing team and plans accordingly, and its players give priority to implementing that plan. Like if an English batsman’s weakness is a bouncer, then the bouncer is used as a weapon against him. But now it is visible in both depth and severity.

The victory of the first two Tests covered England’s top-order weakness but in the third test, this weakness came in light. The Indian team took lessons from the defeat of the second Test and thrashed English batting order in a way when England’s team lost to only 161 in reply to India’s 329 in the first innings of the Nottingham Test.

Experts believe that the England team wouldn’t like to take risk of being dependent on pitches. The way Team India’s bowling is becoming increasingly sharp, England’s team wants as a team to increase its strength, not only the confidence of Team India’s bowling. In both tests, weather and pitch cases have been helped both the teams. In batting order, the confidence of Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Hardik Pandya is coming back. The performance of the bowlers is at the peak.
