India-England Fourth Test

Ranchi's JSCA International Stadium Complex February 23–27, 04:00 GMT


Indian speed bowler Jasprit Bumrah will rest for the fourth Test against England in Ranchi on Friday.


The decision was made "keeping in mind the duration of the series and amount of cricket he has played in recent times," according to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).


As the only frontline pace bowler on either side to have participated in all three Test matches thus far, Bumrah has the top ranking in the world for men's Test bowlers.

India is ahead 2-1 in the five-Test series.


With 17 wickets taken at an average of 13.64 in the series thus far, Bumrah30, is the leading wicket-taker.


Due to a quad injury, batsman KL Rahul will lose further time and be evaluated before next month's last Test in Dharamsala.


After being cut from the team for the third Test in Rajkot, fast bowler Mukesh Kumar re-joined the team in Ranchi.


India defeated England by 434 runs in the third Test, returning from behind to take the lead in the series.


India squad for fourth Test: Rohit Sharma (capt), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Rajat Patidar, Sarfaraz Khan, Dhruv Jurel, KS Bharat, Devdutt Padikkal, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohd. Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Akash Deep.


Virat Kohli, the Indian batsman, has announced the birth of his second child in the meantime.


On February 15Kohli announced on social media that his wife, Anushka Sharma, had given birth to Akaay.


The 35-year-old withdrew from the entire series last month after announcing he would miss the first two Test matches of England's trip due to personal circumstances.
