Important Cricket Series For Both Team India And Kohli
is the crazy country of cricket. The Corona epidemic had kept the cricket fans away from the sport. Now after about 11 months, international cricket is coming back in the country.
From 5 February today, in the first Test of the series between India and England at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium, it will not be possible for the cricket enthusiasts to enjoy the match by going to the stadium, but in the second Test, this stadium will have half the capacity of 50,000 spectators.
It is allowed to come. Test matches are not able to attract too many viewers. In this sense, it is not heart breaking to allow an audience in half the capacity.
The gap of one year was
India’s last international series against South Africa which took place between March 12 and 18 last year. However, it proved to be a series in which the game could not be played.
The first ODI of the series was washed away due to rain in Dharamsala. The remaining two matches were canceled after Corona’s case escalated.
In fact, the Indian team played their last international match at home on 19 January 2020 against Australia in Bengaluru.
In this way, the cricket lovers of the country have not been able to deal with this game for more than a year.
Although the IPL was held in the UAE at the end of last year and then the Indian team’s tour of Australia, cricket fans started enjoying the game, but the desire to see their heroes play in front of their eyes is not fulfilled.
Was getting This deficiency is going to be fulfilled by the second test.
This series is important for both Virat Kohli and Team India personally. Kohli has made various achievements in his bright career. During this series, there will be a chance for him to put two new achievements in the bag.
One, as soon as he scores a century in this series, he will be able to make a world record for the highest century as a captain.
Right now former Australia captain Ricky Ponting and Virat Kohli are on par with 41 centuries.
Virat’s betterment in this case is also evident because he has shown this miracle in only 191 innings as compared to Ponting’s 376 innings.
Secondly, if Virat’s team wins two Tests in this series, it will become the first Asian team to win the hundred Tests in the 21st century. India has won 98 Tests from 216 Tests played since 2000. She lost 59 matches while 59 Test draws.
Virat Kohli has brought many successes to the country but he has not been able to win any ICC tournament so far. This series can also provide an opportunity to move forward on this path.
This series is to decide the team challenging New Zealand in the final of the World Test Championship. With Australia’s tour of South Africa cancelled
, New Zealand are placed in the finals as they complete their event by scoring 70 per cent.
Akshar Patel was about to debut for India, but due to this he was out
Now India, Australia and England, any one of these three teams can go above 70 percentage points and play the final from New Zealand.
India will have to win the series by at least 2-1 if not 4-0, 3-0, 2-0 or 3-1 to make it to the finals. England will get a chance to play in the final if they win the series 4–0, 3–0 or at least 3–1.
Australia may get a chance to play in the final if they win the series 0–0, 1–1 or 2–2 or India win 1–0 and England 1–0, 2–0 or 2–1.
Talking about the strength of both teams, India and England, both pace attack and middle order are strong. The presence of captain Virat Kohli, Pujara, Rahane and Rishabh Pant in the Indian middle order makes it strong, while captain Joe Root, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes are the batsmen in the England team with the ability to turn matches from anywhere.
It is true that both teams will try to test the ability of the opposing team by scoring big. Every cricket lover knows that it is hard to beat India in his house.
Chepak Stadium in Chennai has been helpful to spin bowlers anyway. This time too, it does not see much change. In this Test of India, there is a possibility of playing Kuldeep Yadav and Akshar Patel along with Ravichandran Ashwin.
The position of the wicket can be understood with the intention of feeding three spinners. It will be difficult for any team to stand in front of this trio on a spin-friendly wicket.
Left arm spin roll
Since independence in India, England have won three series and left arm spinners have played an important role in all three victories.
If we look at the England teams visiting India after 2000, it happened only once in 2016-17 that the team came without a left arm spinner. As a result, he had to lose all four Tests.
England won the last Test series in India in 2012-13, with 17 wickets by left arm spinner Monty Panesar. This time England team has brought with them left arm spinner Rick Leach and off spinner Dom Bess.
Both took 10 and 12 wickets respectively, contributing significantly to the recent Sri Lanka series win.
England’s performance will depend a lot on the success of these two. It is true that due to playing in the IPL, foreign cricketers are also learning to play spin well.
But there are no spin-friendly wickets in the IPL. The English batsmen will have to take the exam in a different way on the Chepak ground.
