Ben Stokes has been whisked straight back into England’s XI for the Third Test against India at Trent Bridge on Saturday at the expense of the Surrey all-rounder Sam Curran. Stokes starred in the opening win at Edgbaston but missed the Second Test at Lord’s to stand trial in Bristol.

England are otherwise unchanged, with suggestions that Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler and Adil Rashid could make way – with the balance of the side changing – proving unfounded.

In 2016-17, when Virat was scoring 100s and 200s against a visiting England side, James Anderson was asked what the difference was between Virat back in 2014 and now. His response was to dismiss talk that Virat’s really improved; rather, he suggested unless he makes a much bigger impact on the same soil, he can’t be called an improved player. While talking about greatest batsman … [Read more...] about Is Kohli right to skip a Test to play English county cricket?
