India batter Shubman Gill will not be on the field on Day 4 in the ongoing Test match against England in Visakhapatnam. Shubman Gill has injured his finger while fielding in England’s first innings. Shubman who was under a lot of pressure regarding his performance smashed a century on Day 3 in the second Test match which helped India to set a target of 399 runs for England.

Despite his impressive batting skills, Gill’s injury kept him out of the game for the day. Sarfaraz Khan will take the field in place of the injured Shubman Gill as the match advances at Visakhapatnam’s Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium.

“I think that’s part and parcel of the game. You do well and everybody’s going to applaud you. You don’t do well, everybody’s doing too… But I think the important thing is to be able to know what you’re going to do when you go into bat. I’m someone who likes to see the situation, play according to the situation and take chances and I think play percentage cricket,” Gill said after scoring a hundred.

“It’s critical to be loyal to who you are and how your business operates. When you try to be over-defensive or over-aggressive in order to be someone you’re not, you end up prolonging those innings and being unable to break free. That was my mentality heading into the Test match. “I’m going to play like I’ve always played,” Gill said.

India seems to level the Test series

India will look to bowl down England and level the series by 1-1. On the other hand, England captain Ben Stokes will chase down the target and looks to lead the series by 2-0.

The circumstance provides a challenge for India as they try to take advantage of the early conditions, which usually favour fast bowlers and spinners. England’s approach may include sweeps and reverse sweeps to counter Indian spinners, especially on the ground with varying bounce owing to cracks.

The greatest successful fourth-innings chase in a Test match in India is 387, which India scored against England in 2008. England’s ongoing chase of 399 would create a new record if successful. With the match tightly matched and promising a dramatic finish, both teams will have their work cut out for them on what promises to be another fantastic day of cricket.
