The fourth and final Test will be played between India and England from March 4 at the Narendra Modi Stadium, the world’s largest cricket ground. English wicketkeeper batsman Ben Fox believes that in the fourth Test too, the turn can be seen from the first ball itself. He said that his team is ready to spin this time. India has taken a 2–1 lead in the 4-Test series.
English team is ready for fourth test
Fox said the next test is not a concern. We know what kind of pitch we are going to get. Team India would like to take full advantage of its home condition and strategy. Therefore, we are also preparing accordingly.
Kiran More praised Fox
The 28-year-old Fox had won the hearts of many former veterans of the country and abroad with his wicketkeeping skills in the second and third Tests. Former India wicketkeeper Kiran More described him as one of the best wicketkeepers ever to have visited India. Morey said that Fox has a perfect balance in head and hand positions.
Fox is enjoying wicketkeeping in India
Fox said that they are enjoying wicketkeeping in India. He said that bounce is not permanent on Indian pitches like Sri Lankan pitches. When the ball spins, wicketkeeping is fun. One thing I notice in Sri Lanka is that if the ball is spinning there, it will continue to happen. You know that no ball will be straight.
Pink ball upset a lot in the third test
Fox said that Pink Ball troubled the English batsmen in the third Test. He said that the pink ball is more spin and skid. Motera is one of the toughest pitches in terms of wicketkeeping. The last 2 tests have taken my rigorous test. I have never seen the ball turn so much. Initially both pitches looked ordinary. It seemed that the test would run for 5 days.
Would like to bat well in the fourth test
“After the first Test, we thought it would be like India’s traditional wicket,” Fox said. But from the second test we came to know that it is mentally challenging to turn the ball from the first day. We have to bat well and put runs on the scoreboard. I would like to bat more well in the next Test.
