Team Analysis

India

Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill have been two of the in-form batters for India in the ongoing Test series against England, while Dhruv Jurel has got vital runs in both innings in the previous match for the team as well. The bowling attack of India, in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, who was rested in Ranchi, had the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, and Kuldeep Yadav pick up the majority of the wickets.

England

Joe Root and Zak Crawley were amongst the runs for England in the fourth Test in Ranchi, but the lack of significant contributions from most of the top order led to their ultimate demise against India. In the bowling department, Shoaib Bashir picked up eight wickets in the previous match, and Tom Hartley was quite effective with the ball most times while bowling long spells.
