IND Vs ENG: The International Cricket Council has taken a big decision regarding the last two Tests being played between India and England. The ICC did not change the match officials for the next two Tests between India and England. Javagal Srinath has been made the match referee for the entire series. Anil Chaudhary will join the ICC Elite Panel Umpire Nitin Menon in the third day-night test while Virender Sharma will play the on-field umpire alongside Menon in the fourth test.
The ICC wanted to analyze the performance of Chaudhary and Sharma in the first two Test matches, which led to the delay in announcing the match officials. There was a general perception that Chaudhary did well on the field in the first Test but he made a big mistake in the role of the third umpire in the second Test.
The third Test between India and England will be played with a pink ball from February 24, while the fourth and final Test between the two teams will be held from March 4. The next two matches will be played at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Ahmedabad.
The match officials for the next two Tests are as follows
Third Test: Nitin Menon, Anil Chaudhary (on-field umpire), C Shamshuddin (third umpire), KN Ananthapadmanabhan (fourth umpire) and Javagal Srinath (match referee)
Fourth Test: Nitin Menon, Virender Sharma (on-field umpire), Anil Chaudhary (third umpire), C Shamshuddin (fourth umpire) and match referee Javagal Srinath
Let us know that the four-Test series between India and England is on par with 1-1. With the result of this series, the decision of the second finalist of the ICC World Test Championship to be played in June this year is also to be decided.
