Niranjan Shah Stadium in Rajkot

The tables were turned in the third Test played at the Niranjan Shah Stadium in Rajkot, with India adopting a style of play that could be patented by England. Contrary to expectations, England, known for their new ‘be positive in any situation’ culture, suffered a humiliating defeat. More than the loss itself, it was the style of England’s surrender that lacked the boldness associated with much British conduct. In fact, the boot may be on the other foot in the third Test.

England captain and coach Ben Stokes

The fearless cricketer, often referred to by England captain and coach Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum, was absent for large parts of the third Test. The Indian team, on the other hand, found and embraced this approach, coming back from a precarious position of 33 for 3 on the first morning to record their biggest ever margin of victory in terms of runs (by 434 runs).

The English numbers don’t exactly tell a positive story. In the current era of baseball and under the philosophy of Stokes and McCullum, his scoring rate has dropped from 4.82 to 4.71 in this series. Here in the second innings, when he was all set to chase the 600-run target, he managed just 122 runs at 3.07.

“You need to be flexible at times. When you visit places like India, the turning ball and bounce change later in the match makes it difficult for you to find the middle of the bat and hit a lot of boundaries. Be flexible. Also, England don’t have buzz bowlers. You need bowlers like West Indies and if you want to be a buzz bowler, you need Shane Warne in your team. It’s basically But it’s about batting and being very aggressive,” former England all-rounder, Derek Pringle told Cricbuzz, analyzing the buzz ball, England’s performance that day and the series.

India Beat England in the Third Test

India did not have to struggle for quality bowlers. Rohit Sharma has plenty of ammunition in his bowling arsenal and on Sunday, Ravindra Jadeja proved why he is one of the best all-rounders in the world. His control and accuracy were too much for the England batsmen, who failed to read his bowling and cope with the variable bounce of the fourth-day pitch. He took 5 wickets for 41 runs.

Jaiswal scored a powerful double century

Jaiswal scored a powerful double century, his second in as many Tests, but the difference between the sides was the quality of the Indian bowlers. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj in the first innings and Ravindra Jadeja in the second innings were hot for the visitors. But India could have won the series so far due to the tactical error of going for a rank turner in the first Test in Hyderabad. The scoreline would have been 3-0 instead of 2-1.

England do not have spinners

It was a big gamble which culminated in Hyderabad as England do not have spinners like Jadeja, R Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav. A large turning pitch in Hyderabad eliminated the Indian advantage and brought the spin quality of both sides close. Ever since, India started playing on pitches that don’t turn as much, like Visakhapatnam and here in Rajkot, there has been a big difference in quality between the spinners.

Difference between the sides

Also the difference between the sides was that England could not make the second innings which Ollie Pope (196) played in Hyderabad but such an innings does not happen in every Test. “Yes,” said Pringle. Pringle said, “England are relying on miracles to win. Ollie Pope’s innings was a miracle. He will probably never play such a brilliant innings in his entire career. England’s approach calls for flexibility.

Ben Stokes refused and refused

But Ben Stokes refused and refused to change the new ethos of cricket that the England team has embraced. “No, absolutely not,” the England captain declared after the match. “Our batting line-up is full of international quality players. We give them the freedom to play what is in front of them. You can see the difference in the way the two teams play in India. The last two matches, India runs the board, the way they want to run. We’ve been able to do it at times, but not sustain it as long as we’d like. That’s not what we do. We feel like we need something. Also, we need to look at our execution this week. Was it how we executed those shots that led to our downfall, and a lot of us would say that. That yes, I didn’t execute well.”
