The test series against England will be India’s first assignment after the loss in the World Test Championship final and this could be the last chance for the underperforming players too. India despite being a dominating team around the world in tests, hasn’t done particularly well in England and this will be the best time to correct the statement.
The senior players have to step up for the side in a crucial series and the England seam bowling attack is a tough one to face always. There will be a lot of opportunities waiting in the wings and here are 3 Indian players for whom this could be the last England tour.
3 Indian Players For Whom This Could Be The Last England Tour:
Cheteshwar Pujara hasn’t been in the greatest of forms in the last two years after having a phenomenal tour of Australia in 2018 and he hasn’t scored a century in the last 18 tests which is very unlike him. Pujara is one of the important batsmen for India in tests as he grinds away the time and also he can play those long innings.
However, his technique was exposed in swinging conditions against New Zealand in the World Test Championship and he never could get going too. He showed some positive intent in the practice game against County Selected XI but couldn’t get the big score under his belt to be on the safer side. The likes of KL Rahul and Hanuma Vihari are fighting for a spot in the Indian team and Pujara will need a good series to save himself from getting dropped.
