This is Ishant Sharma’s 100th Test match.
Kuldeep Yadav will be sacked as Umesh Yadav will be fielded. Akshar Patel, meanwhile, could be replaced by Hardik Pandya if the team management considers the need for a 4th fast bowler. This is because in the day-night Test against Bangladesh last year, the spinners bowled only 7 overs in total.
There may be some changes in the England squad as well. James Anderson, who did not play in the last game, could bang Jobra Archer. Markwood or Stuart Broad could feature as the 3rd cracker. Tom Bess could fill his place due to the absence of Moin Ali.
Rory Burns could be ruled out as Zack Crowley is fit at bat. Similarly it is expected that he will get Johnny Barstow instead of Dan Lawrence. Daytime Test Because in the end the balls are a little faster and swing more.
