India tour of England, 2021, Match-4th Test, and the match is going to be played between England & India and the match is all set to take place at Kennington Oval, London
Hello and welcome to another match of an International series which is going to be played today at 3: 30 PM IST.
Joe Root is in the form of his life and has already hit 3 centuries in this series. Jos Buttler will miss the 4th Test whereas Chris Woakes is back into the England squad.
On the other hand, India has still concerns playing against Swing where they bundled out for just 78 runs on the opening day of the 3rd Test. Captain and Vice-captain’s lean patch in this series is still a worrying thing for the visitors although they don’t have any plans to bring extra batter in for the 4th Test. They just need one victory to retain the Pataudi trophy.
Pitch Report – ENG vs IND
Traditionally the Oval pitch offers a little something for everyone. There is usually bounce and carry for the quicker bowlers while it tends to spin on days four and five as well. In between times, it is typically a nice surface on which to bat. All the indications are that the pitch for this game will follow a similar pattern although the day before the match, there was more of a green tinge to it than might be normal. The forecast is set fair for the first four days of the game although there is a chance of rain on day five.
