ENG vs IND: Ravindra Jadeja Will Be Biggest Threat In Second Innings, Says Moeen Ali

England Test vice-captain Moeen Ali reckoned that left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja will be the biggest threat for his side on the final day of the ongoing fourth Test against India. England were set a target of 368 runs to win the fourth Test against India and the hosts have all ten wickets in hand heading into the final day of an absorbing Test match. “Jasprit Bumrah is one of those bowlers who can make anything happen but Jadeja is the biggest threat on that wicket. India always fight back strongly and that’s something we’re going to have to be wary about,” Ali told Sky Sports.

England pacer Chris Woakes also believes that the Oval pitch is still good enough to bat on and reckons that his side have a chance to chase down 291 runs on the final day.

“We still feel it is a good wicket to chase down any score. To go all the way and chase down that score would be an incredible effort. Our openers have done a great job till now and we are in a good position to start the final day. To get another 291 on a day-five pitch always sounds like a tough task but we’ve to keep reminding ourselves that this pitch is still good for batting and we can do it if we bat well,” said Woakes during a virtual press conference.

“We just have to tick it off slowly and it’ll be a full house at The Oval, so the atmosphere would be great on Day 5. And that’s where you want to be as a player. I watched the first three Tests of this series at home and was desperate to be a part of the England side, hopefully, we have an opportunity to win,” he added.
