Handed initiative back to England: Stuart Broad explains what India did wrong in IND vs ENG 4th Test

Although Stuart Broad praised Shoaib Bashir's outstanding consistency, he questioned India's decision to drop World No. 1 Test bowler Jasprit Bumrah for the 4th Test

After facing a drubbing by 434 runs in the IND vs ENG 3rd Test, the Ben Stokes-led team has bounced back in the IND vs ENG 4th Test. The way that England were controlling the second day of the fourth Test against India in Ranchi has delighted former England fast bowler Stuart Broad. Broad described the tourists as “massively on top” and said he was perplexed by India’s decision to rest speedster Jasprit Bumrah.

Jasprit Bumrah has taken aim at 'well wishers' for showing support after he was announced as the new Test No. 1 bowler.

Although Stuart Broad praised Shoaib Bashir’s outstanding consistency, he questioned India’s decision to drop World No. 1 Test bowler Jasprit Bumrah for the 4th Test. India are currently in a spot of bother as the hosts have lost 7 wickets while trailing by more than 100 runs. Dhruv Jurel is the only recognised batter in the middle.

Earlier, England rode on Joe Root’s century to post decent total of 353 on the board. England youngster Shoaib Bashir has been outstanding with the ball, taking 4 crucial wickets to deepen India’s woes.

“Haven’t seen much of this Test match as of yet, just clicked on now. England massively on top. Spinners bowling accurately, uneven bounce. Cracks. Bowlers dream. 350 looks 100 above par. Toss in this series seems crucial. Bat first, dominate the game. Bumrah ‘rested’- can’t understand it. 8 overs in his last innings. Handed initiative back to England,” Broad wrote on social media platform X (previously Twitter).
