IND vs ENG LIVE – Jasprit Bumrah Injured? “That’s (resting pacers) bound to happen. It is a logical and sensible thing to do. You obviously don’t want to push individuals to a point where they break down. That conversation is very important. Very sensible and logical one at that as well,” Virat Kohli said ahead of the 4th Test at Oval.

“We will have that conversation with individuals and see who is placed where physically and who needs to have a game off. You can’t expect with a short turnaround like this for guys to play four Tests in a row. So, we will have to assess who are the guys who will be given that many days to recover and be okay for the fourth one,” Virat Kohli added.
