- The game reaches its climax on the final day of the India-England Oval Test.
- Holding and Michael Atherton say England has a chance of winning
- England needed just 291 races to win on day five
London: Round four of the India-England series is heading towards its most exciting match. It was unpredictable which team would win on the fifth day at the Oval, where both teams battled for four days. With 10 wickets in hand, England needed just 291 races to win. But Indian pacemakers and spinners won’t make it easy for England to win.
The pitch, which had sunk the Indian batting into collapse on the first day, was still in favor of batting on the fourth day. West Indian legend Michael Holding predicts that Indian bowlers will not be able to shine on a field without the significant help of English pacemakers. I don’t think India can do what English pacemakers cannot. The case of Jadeja is also questionable. He also made it clear that there was a possibility if it were up to Ashwin.
Former England star Michael Atherton predicts that England have a chance of winning. The pitch is conducive to hitting. India’s bowling lineup, which doesn’t feature Ishant Sharma, Mohammad Shami and R Ashwin, doesn’t think it can do much. Jadeja is also expected to make no changes to the match. Atherton also hints that perhaps Jadeja will shine.
On the last day, the game is ready to move in any direction. With 77 not out, it will be easy for England to win on the batting field. But India is hoping to win if Jadeja can take land. At the same time, many former players are of the opinion that if R Ashwin had been in the team, India would have won the match on the final day. If they lose Test 4 against England, Virat Kohli will be blamed for not seeing Ashwin.
