England is currently touring India for a 5-match Test series. Ben Stokes's side surprised everyone by beating the Men in Blue in the 1st Test by 28 runs. The visitors have shown a brilliant brand of cricket against a dominant Indian side. Rohit Sharma's side after taking a lead of 190 runs could not capitalise on the same leading to a loss at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.
England were the last side to win a series in India back in 2012/13. Since then Rohit's side is yet to lose a series at home as they have won 16 consecutive games over the years. They have a chance of beating them this time as they have taken a 1-0 lead, but they need to show consistent performance in the 2nd Test as well.
Head coach Brendon McCullum since his inclusion in the side the team has fully changed and has played an attacking brand of cricket named 'Bazball'. The side have won 14 out of 19 Test matches so far in the former New Zealander's tenure. The side might be making some changes in the 2nd Test, especially in the bowling department.
Here are the three bowling changes England can make in 2nd Test
3. Ollie Robinson
Ollie Robinson has been a key bowler for the Three Lions in recent years. He has been a hit-the-deck bowler for the side and has performed superbly when got the chance. Robinson was the hero for the side in the Test series against Pakistan as he picked 9 wickets in the flat tracks of Pakistan during the 2022/23 season. He can be a possible change in the 2nd Test for the side if the pitch somewhat helps his kind of bowler.
2. James Anderson
James Anderson is probably the greatest fast bowler of this generation. The 41-year-old still has the ability to struggle with the batters if he gets a swing from the pitch. As a fast bowler at his age in international cricket, the fitness and ability of his bowl in Tests have been mesmerising to watch. Anderson has picked 690 wickets in the longest format of the game and is just 10 wickets away from becoming the first pacer to pick 700 wickets in the traditional format of the game. The veteran pacer will be another choice who can get a nod in the 2nd Test
1. Shoaib Bashir
Shoaib Bashir has finally reached India, after having a visa issue while travelling from Dubai. The 20-year-old off-spinner is yet to make his debut in the longest format of the game. With Jack Leech getting injured the young man might make his debut in the traditional format of the game. Bashir will be eager to make his impact in one of the most difficult conditions to bowl against a side that has not lost a series in the last 12 years.
