Even for IPL, hundreds of fans gather in the stadium to cheer for their favourite team and enjoys viewership of millions through digital platforms. In our country, win and records of other cricket teams are also celebrated and appreciated equally.
England players faced difficulties against Kuldeep Yadav in the three-match Twenty20 International (T20I) series and the first two One-day Internationals (ODIs) of the three-match series. Yuzvendra Chahal also caused a lot of problems with the English batsmen failing to come to terms with India's spinners.
But ahead of the five-match Test series that starts on August 1, England has found a great bowler in their captain.
The England captain had a dismal outing with the bat for Yorkshire vs Lancashire in the County Championship but more than made up with the ball in hand, helping Yorkshire defeat their arch-rivals by 118 runs at Old Trafford on Tuesday. The part-time off-spinner finished with the remarkable figures of 4-5 from 7.4 overs, including five maidens.
Many of the Indian bowlers will not be able to play in the test which has increased tension in the team and also pressure on the batsman to score more. however, England bowlers have expected to cause some trouble for the batsman.
