cook2New Delhi, Wednesday, December 7 – Probability of seeing a first-class show by the Men in Blue in opposition to England is up and this is due to their good performances in the earlier matches they played in the last few weeks.

Taking into account this fact that Indian players defeated England in 2nd and 3rd Test after a draw in the opening match, it can be said for sure that some more colors of the hosts can be seen during the fourth Test that is to be hosted by Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Since the match start from Thursday, December 8, preparations are in full swing. Given that it has been more than a few weeks when England players landed on the foreign soil to contest the opponents in all formats of the game, they are assumed to have steadily adopted the unfamiliar conditions. This may help them as presentation now matters.

On the other hand, under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, India are looking forward to another Test win, which will help them claim series. Home turf is best to experiment with available options. What Kohli, Murali Vijay, Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Parthiv Patel, Ravindra Jadeja, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jayant Yadav, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Karun Nair, Amit Mishra, Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar can do, people are aware about it.

Their ability to rise can be a threat for England, who will be led by England captain Alastair Cook. Hopes of the skipper and England cricket fans must be up from Gary Ballance, Gareth Batty, Moeen Ali, Zafar Ansari, Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball, Stuart Broad, Jos Buttler, Liam Dawson, Ben Duckett, Steven Finn, Haseeb Hameed, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, James Anderson and Keaton Jennings.

With only few hours left for the match to start, both sides must be looking forward to come up with great strategies to keep opponents under the pump. Players will wish to refine their skills while tackling the rivals in the remaining time before the Test match begins. Gaining expertise is probable to work and improve way of attack as well. England are a talented camp but India have been ahead of them in several regards. How Cook’s men restrict the hosts from achieving something big will be interesting to watch.
