Former England captain on Ben Stokes: “That Devaluing Of His Wicket…”
According to Kevin Pietersen, a former captain of England, Ben Stokes is undervaluing his wicket, which is not a good thing.
The ongoing Edgbaston Test between India and England is currently being led by Jasprit Bumrah. On Day 3, with Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant remaining undefeated at 50 and 30, the visitors increased their advantage to 257. So India took a commanding lead in the match after bundling out England for 284, giving them a 132-run edge in the first inning. Ben Stokes, the captain of England, was only able to get 25 points before being taken off by Shardul Thakur.
Former England captain Kevin Pietersen claimed that Ben Stokes is undervaluing his wicket, which is not a good thing when commentating live on Sky Sports.
“Due to the stress, strain, perseverance, and discipline required to achieve them, test match hundreds are precious commodities. I believe it might not be a good thing for his wicket to lose value, “On the radio, Pietersen stated.
Despite the fact that Ben Stokes had crushed Shardul Thakur’s delivery, Jasprit Bumrah made an incredible catch while diving to his left. Ben Stokes used four fours to score 25 off of 36 balls.
“Ben shouldn’t use excessive aggression to try to illustrate a point, in my opinion. To get Ben Stokes out, the bowler must produce some of his greatest strikes. Stokes is currently attempting to assert authority by charging bowlers, “Pietersen stated.
“When England is at odds, he doesn’t need to lose his cool and slog the ball into the air. Stokes is capable of performing the same tasks that Bairstow is. I would not at all advise him to refrain from pursuing the bowlers, but rather to remain still. He is too talented of a player to be acting in this manner, “Added he.
At the end of Day 3’s play, Pujara and Pant had India’s second innings score at 125/3.
