Eng vs Ind 2018: I Don’t Want Changes for Fourth Test – Virender Sehwag
Former batsman Virender Sehwag said he doesn’t want any changes to the Indian playing XI for the fourth Test match at Aegis Bowl, Southampton. In fact, Virat Kohli has led in 38 Test matches and he has played a different XI in all the matches.
However, India found their right combination in the last Test match at Trent Bridge where they won by a gargantuan margin of 203 runs. Thus, Virender Sehwag doesn’t want to alter the winning combination of the team.

The former combative opener said India was able to tick the right boxes in the previous match. The openers provided a 60-runs stand in both the innings and the fielding was also up to the mark.
“It is difficult to say that there won’t be any changes. I personally don’t want changes for the next Test but he (Kohli) might not. The team looks balanced and strong with a good pace attack and Ashwin in good form. The openers are doing well and the middle order also played well at Trent Bridge. KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant and Kohli were phenomenal with their catching which was a big factor in the win. During my playing days, we had an experienced slip cordon filled with greats like Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman and Tendulkar who hardly dropped catches,” Virender Sehwag told in an interview with India TV.
Meanwhile, Ravichandran Ashwin had suffered a hip injury in the last Test match. Thus, there are some clouds hovering his place in the fourth Test match.
Consequently, India will hope that the talismanic all-rounder regains his full fitness.
The Indian think tank and Virat Kohli hasn’t been consistent with their selections. However, as India won the third Test match and found their best combination, there isn’t any need for a change.
Unless India is forced to make a change due to Ravichandran Ashwin’s fitness, they should stick to the same playing XI.
