Breaking News: India’s Key Pacer Benched for Fourth England Test: As part of India’s strategic workload management policy, Jasprit Bumrah will miss the upcoming fourth Test against England, commencing on February 23.

Bumrah, who is currently leading the wicket-takers in the series, has been released from the squad, with uncertainty lingering over his availability for the final Test.

The decision to rest Bumrah aligns with India’s commitment to preserving player fitness and optimizing performance. Mohammed Siraj’s earlier rest in Visakhapatnam underscores the team’s adherence to this policy.

Additionally, KL Rahul’s absence in the fourth Test due to fitness concerns adds to India’s challenges. However, there’s hope as Mukesh Kumar, previously released for domestic cricket, is anticipated to rejoin the squad.

Despite these setbacks, India maintains a 2-1 series lead after bouncing back from an initial defeat. As they gear up for the crucial fourth Test in Ranchi, the team remains focused on maintaining momentum and securing victory.

India’s dominance extends beyond the series, with a commendable standing in the ICC World Test Championship. Currently occupying the second spot, India’s robust performance reflects its status as a formidable force in international cricket, while England strives to improve its standings.

India squad for the 4th Test:

KS Bharat (WK), Devdutt Padikkal, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohd. Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Akash Deep, Rajat Patidar, Sarfaraz Khan, Dhruv Jurel (wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Shubman Gill
