England has initiated to go with a pacer attack and not only they want the pacers to take wicket but would force the batsmen to get distracted to pull an edge as quickly as possible.
England starts with 4 slips and 2 short fielders, which proves the team is guided by none other than Brendon McCullum as the same condition was witnessed during the Baz time with the Kiwis during coach’s playing era.
The overcast conditions will definitely benefit James Anderson and also to Stuart Broad who is master of adjusting with the climate.
The first over ends with a single boundary hit by Shubman Gill in the last ball of James Anderson’s delivery which was flicked for a beautiful four.
India are 4/0 at 1 over.
Team India leads the ongoing series since 2021, with 2-1 and the home side has a potential opportunity to equal the series and snatch away the historical win for the Asian side as well as Bumrah’s maiden win as a captain.
