Former English captain Alastair Cook seems very angry with the way the England batsmen batted in the Rajkot Test, especially Jonny Bairstow. He believes that England should not select Bairstow in the playing eleven for the fourth Test match. He also said that if the visiting team takes this decision, it will be in their interest.

Let us tell you that this series has been very bad so far for the explosive batsman Bairstow. He has scored just 102 runs in six innings at a modest average of 17. Alastair Cook feels that he faces challenges on the Indian tour. Therefore, the break may help Bairstow to regain his confidence.

His tour so far has been difficult – Alastair Cook

Speaking to TNT Sports, Alastair Cook said about Jonny Bairstow, his tour so far has been difficult. And India is a very difficult place to get on that treadmill. I’m taking Johnny out of the firing line for player safety.

Cook also suggested that England could look at someone like Dan Lawrence, who could add more strength to the batting line-up.

Let us tell you that after winning the first Test match in Hyderabad, England had to face consecutive defeats in Visakhapatnam and Rajkot Tests. With this defeat, the visiting team has lagged 1-2 in the five-match series. Now to remain in the series, he will have to win the fourth Test match starting from 23 February. If India wins this match then the series will also be won by the host team.
