India vs England 4th Test Match: India will take on England in the fourth Test at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium, Motera on 4th March, Thursday. The host would be looking to win the series and give the English side no chance to create any upset or draw. This match is important in terms of India’s chance to qualify for the World Test Championship Final against New Zealand.
With the spinning heroics of Axar Patel and R. Ashwin India had no problem whatsoever in annihilating England in the third test at Motera. England was defeated in record two days in the First pink ball test of this series. Joe Root-led side would now be looking to avenge that humiliating loss and ruin India’s chances at WTC Final.
India vs England Predicted XI 4th Test
Virat Kohli will have a challenge on his hand as India’s premium fast bowler, Jasprit Bumrah is out of the 4th Test due to personal reasons. As things are looking, Bumrah will be either replaced by Washington Sundar or Kuldeep Yadav in the last test match of the series.
Joe Root has a decision on his hand whether to play England’s legend Stuart Broad in the 4th test or not. Broad form in India has been absolutely terrible, to say the least. English bowler has failed to take a wicket in the last two test matches in India. In the absence of Moeen Ali, it is likely that Dom Ress will take the place of Stuart Broad in playing XI vs India.
England: Dominic Sibley, Rory Burns, Joe Root (C), Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Foakes (WK), Ollie Pope, Dom Bess, Jack Leach, Jofra Archer, and James Anderson.
