England bring in Robinson, Bashir for fourth India Test

NEW DELHI: Pacer Ollie Robinson has been included in the England squad for the fourth Test against India in Ranchi, commencing on Friday, marking his debut in the series.
The 30-year-old’s last appearance for England was in the third Ashes Test at Headingley last year, where he managed just 11.2 overs before being sidelined due to a back spasm.
Robinson steps in for Mark Wood, who featured in two of the India Tests.
Additionally, spinner Shoaib Bashir earns a spot in the XI, replacing Rehan Ahmed.
Bashir, aged 20, debuted in the second match against India at Visakhapatnam after missing the opener due to a visa delay.
England faced a heavy 434-run defeat in the third Test, trailing 2-1 in the five-match series.
The fifth and final match is scheduled for March 7 in Dharamsala.

Is Jasprit Bumrah a perfect fit to succeed Rohit Sharma as captain?

England team:
Ben Duckett, Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes (capt), Ben Foakes, Ollie Robinson, James Anderson, Shoaib Bashir, Tom Hartley.
