England got the advantage by winning the toss; they superbly executed their batting plans. Joe Root sincerely played the captain knock by hitting a double century. The Indian team did poor fielding, dropped catches, missed stumping chances, the field placement also not looked prominent, the changing of bowlers not viable. Delay in changing for new Ball led to many no-balls, by giving singles.
Apart from this, the Indian bowler’s allowed English batsman to rotate the strike. However, we can say, all these mistakes done by the Indian team while fielding. The most major mistake was made in the selection of the playing eleven. Why didn’t Kuldeep Yadav get the chance? He is one of the best world-class bowlers for this pls check his test Wicket records.
