India trails by 134 runs, so it’s about winning the mentality

<p>The surface at the JSCA Sports Complex was not a rank turner, according to India’s bowling coach Paras Mhambrey, but they did not anticipate it to play so slowly on the second day.</p>

<p>After Day 2, the hosts were struggling at 219/7, as England’s off-spinner Shoaib Bashir had achieved an outstanding 4/84 in his second Test match.</p>
<p>“Considering the nature of the games we’ve had previously here, the wicket tends to get slower as the day progresses,” Mhambrey said. They usually perform at a slower tempo and with less intensity. Though to be honest, we weren’t prepared for it to perform that poorly on the actual second day. Unexpected was the varying bounce. I wouldn’t describe it as a rank-turner just yet; hitting is a little difficult because of the low bounce. I don’t believe there were an excessive number of balls that were unplayable or spun sharply.”</p>
<p><strong>“You must be prepared mentally.” </strong></p>
<p>Mhambrey expressed optimism that Dhurv Jurel and Kuldeep Yadav, who are slated to bat last for India, will be able to cut down on their 134-run disadvantage.</p>
<p>“We have two reliable batters at the crease who have combined to score about forty runs. They have really applied themselves.” Reaching as near to their score as possible is crucial. That’s the first stage, and tomorrow we’ll evaluate our progress toward achieving the goal (England’s first-inning score),” he said.</p>
<p>“We need to psychologically be ready to pursue, regardless of the number. This combination is where we need to start batting strongly in the second innings. We must improve our batting,” he said. —</p>
<p><strong>Baseball isn’t arrogant, according to Root </strong></p>
<p>Ranchi: Veteran England batsman Joe Root said Wednesday that his team’s Bazball strategy in Test cricket isn’t about being haughty, but rather about achieving the greatest outcome possible for the group.</p>
<p>Following their historic 434-run defeat to India in the third Test match in Rajkot, England’s ultra-aggressive strategy under captain Ben Stokes and coach Brendon McCullum was widely criticized.</p>
<p>Recently, there have been instances when acting a little more aggressively is the best course of action. It seems like (Jasprit) Bumrah will be under pressure if I make that shot and execute it better, and our perspective on the game will change significantly once again. It’s not about assuming too much… Although the term “baseball” is often used, Root said, “That’s your word; that’s not how we look at it.”</p>
