Virat Kohli to play same XI for third Test match against England
London : Team India skipper Virat Kohli has hinted that he will be playing with same squad in the third Test match against England. India is leading the series 1-0 and would be looking to take an unassailable lead at Headingley, Leeds.
India has been playing the game wisely with consistent performance from the team combination of four pacers and a spin-allrounder in Ravindra Jadeja.
Ahead of the third Test match, Virat Kohli said that he does not feel a requirement to change the squad unless any player encounters a niggle.
“We have no reason to change anything [in the XI] unless people have niggles, which we haven’t encountered since the last Test. You usually don’t want to disturb the winning combination,” Kohli said in the press conference.
Meanwhile, the English side is dealing with players' injuries with Jofra Archer and Stuart Broad not playing alongside Ben Stoke who has taken an indefinite break from cricket.
The hosts have been struggling to get a grip on the game against India.
