Ind vs Eng: Who will end sweet? Fifth Test between India and England from today

Dharamshala : News Agency : The fifth Test match between India and England will be played at Dharamsala from today. The Indian team is already leading the series 3-1.

After losing the first Test, the Rohit Sharma-led side won 3 matches in a row and now have a chance to equal the record 112 years ago. But, England at least have a chance to win the fifth Test and save the series.

Compared to other grounds in India, the Dharamsala pitch is fast and bouncy as the pitch is considered for fast bowlers. England have announced their squad for this Test; But Team India seems to be confused about playing Kuldeep Yadav. Rohit Sharma is in a dilemma whether to play three fast bowlers or spinners.

The Indian team will announce their playing eleven during the coin toss on Thursday. Devdutt Padikkal may get a chance to replace Rajat Patidar. A Ranji match was played at Dharamsala grounds 3 weeks ago. This Ranji match was played between Delhi and Himachal Pradesh. 36 wickets fell in four days, all these 36 wickets were taken by fast bowlers. 4 Ranji matches were played in this ground. In this, the fast bowlers have bowled a total of 814 overs and have taken 122 wickets at an average of 23.17. The spinners bowled 122.2 overs and took just seven wickets at an average of 58.42.

The fast bowlers are likely to get the upper hand in this match. So spinner Kuldeep Yadav can be rested. Jasprit Bumrah has joined the team in his place. If that happens, Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin will be the main spinners of the team. After Bumrah's return, Mohammad Siraj and Akash Deep will also remain in the squad.

How will the Dharamsala pitch be?

According to Cricinfo, Dharamshala's pitch will be fast and bouncy, with overcast conditions helping the ball swing. Fast bowlers can make a big impact; But spinners can also enjoy the bounce. Although there is less grass on the pitch, the outfield is greener. In the event of a reverse swing, it may take some time to occur.
