IND vs ENG 2nd Test – Root’s SOS to Moeen: A return for the 2nd test against India could be on the cards for all-rounder Moeen Ali. England badly missed the services of all-rounder Ben Stokes in the 1st test at Trent Bridge. Though Stokes is not coming back anytime soon, England coach Chris Silverwood & captain Joe Root are likely to send SOS to Moeen on Tuesday for the 2nd Test in Lords.
‘Moeen is certainly under consideration,‘ said head coach Silverwood on Monday. ‘It’s something I will talk about with Joe Ro‘We know he’s a fine cricketer and he’s showing good form in the Hundred at the moment, even though that’s a different format. It’s something that has to be in our mind.’, Silverwood was quoted by DailyMail.ot.

England playing XI – India vs England LORD’s TEST: Moeen is not the only one who England coach is likely to recall. Amid repeated batting failures by the top order, test discards Haseeb Hameed is also in line for a comeback to the England XI. Skipper Joe Root was the only positive for England in the batting department as other batsmen even failed to score a fifty. With a number of changes expected in the second Test, England coach Chris Silverwood indicated that Haseeb Hameed is closer to a Test recall.
‘I would rather be accused of giving somebody one too many chances than not enough – I’ve made that clear from the start – but at some point, I will have to make a decision,’ Silverwood told Dailymail.
