Former Australian cricketer Brad Hogg believes India won’t need to make any changes to its playing XI in the fourth Test in the oval, particularly in the batting department. Players like Ajinkya Rahane didn’t have a good game at Headingley and couldn’t score big in either innings.
But according to Brad Hogg, players like Cheteshwar Pujara and Rahane have a lot of experience and that could be crucial for India’s next test in the oval. Your calm demeanor can be very useful.
In a video on his YouTube channel, Brad Hogg had this to say:
“I think they have to go to the same XI in the next Test. I think Suryakumar Yadav will have to wait. They have to support players who were there and did the job before. It’s going to be a heated test match at The Oval and you will be there who need calm shoulders. “
No need to panic and make extreme changes: Brad Hogg
Brad Hogg pointed out that Rahane was a good servant of Indian cricket and has also scored runs when the team asked for it. While Suryakumar Yadav can be seen as a potential replacement, Hogg doesn’t want visitors to panic just yet.
“I think Suryakumar Yadav is the middle player if you want to make this change. But you have to be very careful because Rahane is a very experienced customer. He played a very good in the last test he had good innings. ” He’s done the job for India before. Remember, the score is 1: 1 and you don’t panic and make extreme changes here and there, “concluded Brad Hogg.
The fourth test between England and India begins on Thursday at The Oval.
