Former England captain Michael Vaughan stated that if the English bowlers can stay patient, they can get a cluster of wickets on Day 3 of the fourth Test match.
Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul gave India a good start on Day 3 with 83-run opening stand.
“This four-man seam attack that England have, they have been all over this Indian batting line-up. We saw it in the second innings at Headingley. The Indians made it tough, they hung in there, then there was a collapse. I do think that if England stays patient, I do think there will be a cluster of wickets somewhere,” said Vaughan on the Test Match Special podcast on BBC.
“The first hour is the key. It will swing more in the first hour. See off the first hour and just play your game. In terms of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, they have got the gift to be able to see off those balls that are bowled into that channel.”
“We have seen continuously throughout this series how the England seamers are good enough to be able to control that channel. If they go chasing that channel too early when the ball is moving around, they will probably snick to the cordon.”
India were at 108/1 at Lunch on Day 3.
