Ben Stokes has a full-throttle bowling session with pink ball | Cricket News – Times of India

AHMEDABAD: He might not have bowled a lot within the first two Tests in opposition to India, however going into the all-necessary pink-ball sport on the Motera Stadium, England all-rounder Ben Stokes had a full-throttle bowling session on Tuesday.
He was not working at 100 per cent at first of the session, however as he warmed up, the all-rounder began going all out to achieve some a lot-wanted follow.
If the coaching fashion is a signal of issues to return, then it seems like England would possibly are available with the technique of three pacers enjoying with Stokes submitting in because the fourth bowler. Stokes bowling may also permit skipper Joe Root to play two spinners.
England quick bowler James Anderson may need torn aside India’s batting line-up within the opening sport, however the pacer does not anticipate reverse swing to play the identical position (first Test) within the upcoming pink-ball sport.
Anderson stated if the wicket is “abrasive” the bowlers would possibly get some assist with the ball performing some motion however how the issues have panned out within the web session, reverse swing is unlikely.
“It doesn’t feel a lot different [to other brands of pink ball]. What we have found with all the pink balls, it seems like they have an extra bit of lacquer on them so it feels a bit more plastic, the coating, rather than on the red ball where you can feel the leather,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Anderson as saying.
“It feels very similar to the Dukes in the hand. I think we will be unlikely to see reverse. It depends on the pitch — if the pitch is really abrasive you might see a bit of reverse, but from how we’ve bowled it in the nets I would be very surprised if it does reverse. It may well stay a bit harder for longer. We’ll have to wait and see how it reacts after 40-50 overs,” Anderson, who missed the second Test, added.
The 4-match collection between India and England at present stands stage at 1-1. The two groups will now lock horns within the third Test at Motera Stadium on Wednesday. The Motera Stadium is the world’s largest cricket stadium with a capability of 1,32,000 spectators.
