India vs England Pink Ball Test – Bumrah to make a comeback in XI: After being rested in the 2nd Test in Chennai, India’s pace star Jasprit Bumrah is all-set to come back to the Playing XI against England in the 3rd Test that will be a pink-ball Day/Night affair at the Motera stadium in Ahmedabad, beginning on February 24.
Bumrah has been India’s best bowler in the last few years, giving India’s pace attack an edge. But injuries have limited his time in India colours. To get him fresh for the third Test, India rested the talented pacer. As he is expected to be rested for ODIs as well, Bumrah according to information available with InsideSport.co will surely be included in the Playing XI for the Pink-Ball Test.

The 3rd Test, being a Day/Night game, is expected to yield a result as has been the case in all 15 pink ball Tests so far. More importantly, it is the pacers who dominate the Day-Night Test matches. The only Day-Night Test match ever played in India (Kolkata) in 2019 is a huge testament to the fact. The Indian pace trio of Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami destroyed Bangladesh batting – with spinners R.Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja had a little role to play.
