The last day of the first Test was washed out in rain and the match was drawn. England have included all-rounder Moeen Ali in the team for the second Test. The last day was washed out in rain which resulted in a draw. However, now England have included all-rounder Moeen Ali in the squad for the second Test at Lord’s.
Barring England’s top-order batsman captain Joe Root, this New Zealand cricketer has been battling death for some time now. Head coach Chris Silverwood has indicated a change in the team due to the team’s consistent poor performance. In the first Test against India, England’s first innings was reduced to 183 runs. In the second innings, the team scored 303 runs in which Joe Root played 109 innings.
Silverwood said the team has lost all-rounders Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes. Due to which Moeen Ali is being considered for inclusion in the team. Moeen Ali is a great cricketer and is currently doing well in The Hundred. He can make up for the loss of an all-rounder in the team.
Ind vs Eng: Why would Kohli and Shastri be happy even if the chances of winning the first Test are low? Moeen Ali played his last Test match against India. He played his last Test in February last year during the tour of India. At home, he played the last Test in 2019. He hasn’t played a Test at home since the first Test of the Ashes series.
The absence of Ben Stokes is the biggest setback for England. Ben Stokes has taken an indefinite break from cricket even before the start of the series against India. This is the reason why the team is missing an all-rounder.
