India Seeks Redemption Against Bazball in Ongoing Showdown

Bazball: It’s happened before, right? It even happened to England when they were here last.

It occurred before. India rallied from 1-0 down at home. ‘We’ve been here before,’ India will say. We trust ourselves to escape. We trust our approaches.

They should tell themselves that. India has been successful in their conditions for a long time because their methods work, and work well, most of the time.

Hyderabad was one of those rare and strange cases. India has been through something very similar before, with Dinesh Chandimal, who was almost an exact copy of Ollie Pope. They came back to win that series too.

India’s Resilience

India has been there and done it. They will believe they can succeed again. Despite their shockwaves in Hyderabad, England will know they must do crazy things in Visakhapatnam to duplicate that result. They won the first Test with a 36-Test frontline spin assault and now play the second with one from three Tests. Three. Joe Root will likely bowl more overs than one of their main spinners again.

However, has England had a better chance in India since their 2012-13 triumph? India was in transition in the late Tendulkar days, and if they weren’t already, the number of absences has put them in a similar predicament.

India’s Resilience

Challenge for Visakhapatnam Battle

India will miss Kohli, KL Rahul, and Ravindra Jadeja in Visakhapatnam, their three most seasoned hitters from the first Test.

Of course, losing Jadeja will leave them without half of one of the best spin-bowling duos ever. This is a huge blow for India, who were already missing Mohammed Shami in Hyderabad, leaving them without a top wicket-taker in Indian conditions and putting extra overs on their spinners due to their apparent lack of faith in Mohammed Siraj.

It shows how good India is that Kuldeep Yadav is set to replace Jadeja. If they could alter his nationality, he’d be England’s first-choice bowler in every Test match, home and away. India is fine, but they may be better, which is England’s best opportunity.

Team news

India must decide without Rahul and Jadeja. Kuldeep’s wicket-taking or Sundar’s versatility? Rajat Patidar’s status or Sarfaraz Khan’s unconventional methods? Could Sundar and Kuldeep replace Siraj, a batter or quick bowler?

India (possible): 1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 Yashasvi Jaiswal, 3 Shubman Gill, 4 Shreyas Iyer, 5 Rajat Patidar, 6 Axar Patel, 7 KS Bharat (wk), 8 R Ashwin, 9 Kuldeep Yadav, 10 Jasprit Bumrah, 11 Mohammed Siraj.

England are going 3-1 again, with James Anderson and Shoaib Bashir coming in for Mark Wood and the injured Jack Leach.

England: 1 Zak Crawley, 2 Ben Duckett, 3 Ollie Pope, 4 Joe Root, 5 Jonny Bairstow, 6 Ben Stokes (capt), 7 Ben Foakes (wk), 8 Rehan Ahmed, 9 Tom Hartley, 10 Shoaib Bashir, 11 James Anderson.
