India Playing XI: Bumrah out, Akash Deep makes debut in Ranchi Test

Bumrah, who has been the standout performer of the series so far, will be given a well-deserved break to manage his workload. In his place, the uncapped Akash Deep has been handed a golden opportunity to impress on the biggest stage.

India vs England 4th Test (IND vs ENG): The highly anticipated fourth Test between India and England is set to begin tomorrow, with both teams vying for series glory. Today, India unveiled their playing XI, revealing a key change: ace pacer Jasprit Bumrah was rested, paving the way for a debut for young Bengal fast bowler Akash Deep.

Bumrah Rested, Akash Deep Steps Up: India Playing XI

Bumrah, who has been the standout performer of the series so far, will be given a well-deserved break to manage his workload. In his place, the uncapped Akash Deep has been handed a golden opportunity to impress on the biggest stage. The 25-year-old has been in impressive form in domestic cricket, bagging 104 wickets in 30 first-class matches. His inclusion adds an exciting element of unpredictability to India’s bowling attack.

Familiar Core, Young Sparks:

The rest of the Indian XI remains largely unchanged. The dependable opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal will look to continue their impressive run, while the middle order boasts young names like Shubman Gill, Rajat Patidar, Dhruv Jurel, and Sarfaraz Khan. Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravichandran Ashwin provide the spin threat, while Mohammed Siraj leads the pace attack alongside Akash Deep.

England Seeks Redemption in Ranchi:

Smarting from their heavy defeat in Rajkot, England will be desperate to bounce back in Ranchi. They have brought in seam bowling all-rounder Ollie Robinson for the first time in the series, while spinner Shoaib Bashir replaces Rehan Ahmed. All eyes will be on captain Ben Stokes, who is expected to return to bowling after recovering from knee surgery.

A Match Poised for Excitement:

With India aiming to clinch the series and England determined to level it, the Ranchi Test promises to be a thrilling encounter. The inclusion of Akash Deep adds a fresh dimension to India’s bowling attack, while England’s bowling changes could disrupt the rhythm established by the hosts.

Don’t miss the action as India and England clash in Ranchi for a Test match that could decide the fate of the series!
