2. Kuldeep Yadav to be replaced with either Jasprit Bumrah or Umesh Yadav
The Indian management expected Kuldeep to bamboozle the English batsmen with his spin in the Lord’s Test as he did in ODI and T20I series.
But the chinaman, who came in the place of Umesh Yadav, failed to find his rhythm at Lord’s and was used for only 9 overs by captain Kohli.
Moreover the English conditions is more suited for pace bowlers and going in with three specialist pacers will benefit the team.
The management will wait to see if Bumrah regains his full fitness. If he does he will be included to the squad or else Umesh, who was dropped at Lord’s, might be given a second chance.
