England Makes Single Change for Dharamsala Test: Mark Wood In, Ollie Robinson Out

The only alteration to England’s squad for the fifth and final test match against India in Dharamsala is the addition of Mark Wood instead of Ollie Robinson. Ben Stokes, the team captain, and Brendon McCullum, the coach, discussed the possibility of adding another fast bowler to the lineup but ultimately chose to continue with the present group after assessing the playing conditions.

After appearing in the third Test in Ranchi, where he enjoyed varying degrees of success, Mark Wood has returned to the team. He had taken four wickets in the first inning but failed to pick up any in the second. He did not fare as well in the opening test of the series. Wood will be replaced by Ollie Robinson, who hit 58 runs in the fourth Test but did not claim any wickets.

India is anticipated to make a switch as well, most likely substituting Jasprit Bumrah with Akash Deep. After taking a break for the fourth test, Bumrah is currently back with the group. KL Rahul is out because of fitness concerns; it was anticipated that he would play in the last game.

After Rajat Patidar’s recent performances, there was considerable conjecture regarding possible changes, but it appears he will remain in the team.

Ben Duckett, Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Ben Foakes, Tom Hartley, Shoaib Bashir, Mark Wood, and James Anderson are the players representing England in the Dharamsala Test. The last test in Dharamsala looks to be a thrilling way to finish the series, with both teams prepared.
