Should you preserve a dry wicket, ball will flip and additional lacquer gained’t be of any consequence,” the previous India worldwide mentioned. “Nevertheless, if there’s dew then clearly the ball will begin skidding and it would simply be good for batting. So that may’t be discounted.”

With Jasprit Bumrah anticipated to return after being rested for the second Check, both Umesh Yadav (topic to clearing a health take a look at) or Mohammed Siraj might be part of the veteran Ishant Sharma in a three-pronged tempo assault.

“Umesh’s health take a look at will occur in a few days time,” a senior BCCI official informed PTI.

The four-match sequence is at the moment locked at one-all.
