The fourth and the final test match of the ongoing India-England four match series will start on March 4 in Ahmedabad and it is quite important for both the teams considering the fact that the winner of the this series will play the finals of the ICC World Test Championship 2019-21 against New Zealand at Lord’s.
Presently, the Indian team has taken the lead by 2-1 and even if it manages to end the fourth test match in draw, it will still reach the finals. A lot of debate is going on at the moment in regard to the pitch of the third test match which was played at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad, as it supported the spinners from the first ball and the match ended within 2 days with India wining the match by 10 wickets. In the third test match, the Indian spinners played a crucial role in the team’s victory and the pacers even didn’t get the chance to bowl in the second innings of England.
In the post match press conference of the third test match, the Indian skipper said that Jasprit Bumrah was talking about the workload management and Ishant Sharma said that he was playing his 100th test match but did not get a chance to bowl.
Before the fourth test match, the Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah made himself unavailable for the selection and it is also being said that he won’t be playing the T20I series and the ODIs series as well. Recently, Jasprit Bumrah made a tweet in which he shared an image of himself sitting in thinking pose with a thinking emoji.

Before the fans started commenting, the former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh took a jibe at Bumrah by commenting, “Paucha marun pehle yah jhadu? (Should I mop first or sweep?)”
Paucha marun pehle yah jhadu ?😁🤪
