Dilip Vengsarkar advocates for the inclusion of Suryakumar Yadav in the playing XI

IND vs ENG: Former Indian captain Dilip Vengsarkar has advocated the inclusion of Mumbai's Suryakumar as the sixth specialist batsman for the fourth Test against England starting on September 2. Of. India lost the third Test by an innings and 76 runs but skipper Virat Kohli is in favor of playing five specialist bowlers despite consistent middle-order failures. Former chief selector Vengsarkar said, "I believe that we need to strengthen our batting line-up which we can do by including Suryakumar Yadav As Sixth Batsman instead of Hanuma Vihari.

We should get one bowler out and go with the sixth batsman. India's great player Sunil Gavaskar has also supported playing with six batsmen. Vengsarkar believes that Suryakumar has the talent and spirit that can make a difference for the Indian team in the next Test match. He said, "Surya is the best for this Indian team in terms of skills and he has been with the team for some time now. He should be included in the team before it is too late. Suryakumar Yadav has scored 5326 runs in first-class cricket at an average of over 44, including 14 centuries.

Apart from this, it is also being speculated that Ajinkya Rahane may be dropped in the fourth Test. Rahane has so far scored 95 runs at an average of just 19. At the same time, Pujara's innings of 91 runs in the third Test has definitely raised some hope. In such a situation, the Indian captain will have to think a lot about the change in India's playing XI for the fourth Test starting from September 2. Suryakumar Yadav, Wriddhiman Saha and Hanuma Vihari are waiting for their innings. Pant's performance has also been very poor. By the way, the support of captain Kohli still remains with Pant.

Ashwin may return

Ishant Sharma has been ineffective in the third Test. In such a situation, Ashwin can get a chance in the fourth Test. It is being told about the pitch of Manchester that spinners can get help there. In such a situation, Ashwin's arrival in the fourth Test is believed to be fixed. In the series, the team of India and England has now reached one each.
