Here is why ICC ranked all batsmen 'number one'

Here is why ICC ranked all batsmen 'number one'

"He is a quality bowler and it's great to have him on the park", Kohli said on the eve of the Nottingham Test.

Shastri said it was vital India did not brood on what had happened at Lord´s as they looked to regain a foothold in the series.

Questions were asked of the team's tactics as weather conditions in London drastically changed in the lead up to the second Test. He's very consistent in hitting the areas that are required at Test level.

It may be that even if India had enjoyed more county games leading into the current series, an unusually hot and dry summer prior to last week's second Test at Lord's would have still left them ill-prepared for the classically English overcast and swing-friendly conditions their batsmen failed to cope with in an innings and 159-run defeat.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) chiefs have recognised the problem of modern touring schedules but are not about to impose conditions on the number and quality of warm-up games, which are rarely money-spinners.

"When the occasion demands, it´s a case of mental resolve, how you put mind over matter and mental discipline will be the key as far as batsmen are concerned going forward in this Test match".

India takes on England in the third Test of the five-match series from Saturday.

"There are still three Test matches to go, and I think it can turn around if we have the belief that we can do it", he noted.

"The only conversation we have had is that the only option is to win this Test and nothing else".

"I'm feeling absolutely fine". It's been an issue that's coming on and off again. I got it in 2011 the first time. You should know where your off stump is.

"The back is such a thing you do not know when it going to go off so all you can do is strengthen muscles around it and work on it. a bit of strengthening, ample rest and proper rehab to get back into shape".

Additionally, Rishabh Pant looks set to make his Test debut, as he was busy batting and practicing behind the wickets to pacers.

"In hindsight, it [playing two spinners] was an error, we should have seen the conditions and we could have gone with an extra seamer". But that's where character comes into play and mental discipline comes into play.

The two spinners bowled only 26 overs between them and went wicketless as India were clearly missing a third front-line seamer. We have to be confident, get ahead of the mistake, and not make it again. "Through history there are a lot of players who have played with an injury and scored runs and taken wickets", Bayliss said.
